Everyone, at one time or another, dreams of their ideal kitchen -- a place where everything is laid out and planned perfectly, containing all the appliances you could ever want, a huge pantry, and the perfect color scheme and style. Our new series covers the kitchens that have inspired us from TV shows and movies, showing you how to recreate the look in your own kitchen. See all our dream kitchens.
Cooking shows are a great place to get inspiration if you're planning on remodeling your own kitchen, and one of the most popular (despite her controversial image) is Paula Deen's kitchen on her Food Network show. Something that not everyone knows about her kitchen is that it's not a television set -- it's actually her own kitchen in her home in Georgia. Paula's kitchen has all the look of a Southern country kitchen with the modern conveniences of a professional one. It includes high-end appliances, refrigerator drawers, and even a built-in deep fryer (but of course!). For the country look, there's a functioning brick fireplace, which adds homeyness to the space. You don't have to have a huge budget to get the look of Paula's kitchen -- with just a few accessories you can achieve its country character. Click through the gallery below to see our finds.
