A White Kitchen

I really love the look of a white kitchen (white cabinets, white/grey soapstone counter tops, and white subway tile) but I am not sure if I am sold on the idea of doing it for my house.  I have 2 black short haired pups, Charlie and Jack, and I can just imagine their tiny hairs getting stuck on the cabinet doors and I would find myself whipping them down endlessly.

Tell me what you think. Do you like white kitchens? If you could paint your cabinets any color what color would they be?

great beams and mix of wood and white. white kitchen {la dolce vita} 
If I had an extra $0000 for appliances I love the look of these retro appliances by Big Chill.

I got a FREE Kindle Fire

Will someone please share a book with me?
I realize I am a little late to jump on the Kindle, Nook, IPad reader bandwagon, but hey when you get the opportunity to get something for free you just have to take it.

If you live in CO, AZ, or CA you too can get a Free Kindle Fire.  You have to open up a checking account at 1st Bank and pay three bills with bill pay, then you get a code in your email and order it online.  The whole process took about a month from setting up the account to getting it in the mail. But it did come, it is cool and yes it was free. 

From the website:
