Arcadian Home Décor ~ Guest Post

Hi all! I’m Jennifer and I write for Arcadian Home Decor, a site that chronicles the work of top interior designers and home decor trends around the world. I've been writing about home decor since graduating university and have loved it ever since. I'm addicted to patterned fabrics, Jonathan Adler, chaise lounges, old doors, milk glass jars, antiques, and chandeliers. One of my favorite places in the whole world is my family's cottage, so when I'm stuck in the city (working!) I love to escape at Fishtail Cottage. Hopefully these spectacular outdoor kitchens will be just as dreamy to you all.

Home decor doesn't have to be confined to interior spaces - spectacular outdoor kitchens decked out with the latest appliances, tools, eating areas, and accoutrements require a little TLC too. Resembling their indoor counterparts, modern outdoor kitchens come equipped with all the bells and whistles, from wall art decor to integrating common home accessories. Here are eight beauties we adore.

For the creatures of comfort

Everything that one would find inside can be found in this spectacular outdoor kitchen - there are the basics, like a stove, sink and fridge, but there are also cozier amenities, such as table decor like lamps, cushioned chairs and a small rug.

For the beginner

An outdoor kitchen doesn't have to be for a chef - this simple set-up has everything a novice would need to get started in al fresco cooking, with a sink, cooktop, fridge, and warming drawers as well as a bar ledge for food prep and eating. The small table decorations add a great touch to the space as well.

For the sun worshipper

Modern-day features like weather-resistant marble counter tops and built-in stainless steel appliances give this open-concept space an indoor feel.

For the at-home campers

The most unique element of this spectacular outdoor kitchen is the massive fireplace, which also provides warmth and ambiance. The manicured landscape and potted plants provide the decor.

For the condo dwellers

Not all outdoor kitchens require a huge yard - this built-in galley kitchen situated on a modest porch optimizes all of the available space, including the end of the counter, which acts like a small high-top table.

For the modern-ites

While many outdoor kitchens are constructed out of classic materials like brick and stone, this spin on the traditional is a stand-alone unit complete with two grilling areas, an oven, burners, a sink, and an amazing architectural shape.

For the mountain retreaters

What's better than cooking on an open flame in the middle of Mother Nature's beauty? The outdoor kitchen seen here has jaw-dropping views not to mention three entire cooking stations as well as a long dining room table decked out with all the right table decorations.

For the family

Rain or shine, families can enjoy this spectacular outdoor kitchen no matter what the weather - not only is it covered but it boasts everything that an at-home chef could possibly dream of for their cooking space, from modern appliances to spacious granite worktops.

Love the mountain view one, I think I would burn dinner because I wouldn't be able to take my eyes off that view. x

This must be how the other half lives. LOL
I could have the best summer gatherings with any one these kitchens; of course a backdrop of mountains would be spectacular.
