One of my favourite online magazines is Lonny. Published bimonthly with a focus on lifestyle and home decor, I always find loads of design inspiration. Hot off the virtual press yesterday, I dived in for a read and found an interesting article about the new site Cultivate.com, "an online kitchen resource on kitchen advice and inspiration to help design lovers plan their dream space". What a fantastic tool for renovators and builders! Not only are there heaps of gorgeous kitchens to drool over, the site gives homeowners a forum for discussion with other kitchen-lovers and design experts.
In this issue of Lonny, Cultivate.com's editor, Sarah Latta gives Lonny "a tour of some of the sites most compelling kitchens". Here's a sneak peek.
(FYI, in America they use the term 'blacksplash' which is the opposite to NZ where we say 'splashback'!)
