I am just wondering:
Does this kitchen...

...remind you of this kitchen...
The overall layout looks very similar. I think I am drawn to them mostly because of the openings on either side of the range leading to a room(s) beyond, a pantry or laundry room of some kind.
The idea of a walk-in pantry is so appealing to me. I could probably do a whole post on walk-in pantries! I am immediately reminded of this room in a Southern Living idea house:
They called this room a "scullery," but it was a walk-in area off to the side of the kitchen and usable for actual cooking, mixing, etc. and not just for storage.

From what I recall, the designer used IKEA cabinets here, which I think is a great reminder that 1) you can use a less expensive product that still looks terrific if you fit it into a cohesive design scheme and splurge on some other elements, and that 2) IKEA products do not have to be uber-modern in their application.
