Need Pics of tropical/Caribbean/British Colonial kitchens

12 years ago

I've been perusing the forum for several months now and have had no luck finding inspiration for my kitchen. I live in Miami, Florida and I love the tropical decorating style.

I won't be remodeling for 2 years, but I wanted to have the concept locked in prior to that. The home is a 70s ranch style with a serious lack of architecture or character, so I don't think anything I'd add would hurt it much. I've checked out many books from the library on Caribbean design but they are of no help in terms of a kitchen.

I've decided on Saltillo tile for the flooring. I love Saltillo tile, rattan, louvers, and wood. However, all of my furniture is wood so I'm wondering if it would be overkill in the kitchen. However, would white cabinetry disguise the feel? I also love Pottery Barn and I think I've figured out why-the casual look.

Can anyone post a picture of a similar kitchen or offer any advice?
