COVET // natural wood kitchens

I've been so attracted to natural wood kitchens lately.  In a sea full of painted kitchen cabinets in every color conceivable, a natural wood kitchen feels like such an unexpected and refreshing departure from the norm.  I've rounded up a few recent favorites that showcase the raw beauty of unpainted wood, and combine traditional with clean-lined aesthetics with a heavy dose of rusticity for good measure.

Having an element such as this hood in natural wood finish would be a nice way to incorporate the look without fully committing to all wood cabinetry. 

What do you think? Would you consider having a natural wood kitchen instead of traditionally painted cabinetry?
