“I always look at the fascination of diners coming through from the dining room into the kitchen…you can never get them out because they’re just totally amazed at what’s going on…”
– British chef Gordon Ramsay
The kitchen is where everything exciting happens at home. It’s where I learned (the hard way) not to touch – “it’s HOT!!!”. It’s where I snuck chunks of cookie dough from behind my mom’s back. It’s where I experimented (and desperately failed) with chocolate cake, and where I attempted (and triumphed!) at cauliflower soup. It’s where I laughed, and cried, and danced to my favourite songs on the radio. But I wish someday, for it to look like the kitchens below…
I would love to wash dishes (yes, I did just admit to wanting to wash dishes) in this kitchen. Imagine the gentle evening breeze that would pass through the window as you washed and dried, and sipped a steamy hot chocolate…
The old collection of books nestled under the beam is lovely, as are the well-used china cups hanging from the wall.
Ingenious! Black chalk-board paint on a pantry door – a cheap alternative to a bulletin board.
Wow – what a bright and informal space.
I have always had a love affair with open shelves and I believe I always will. (Silly, I know!)
A floor-to-ceiling collection of dishes – beautiful!
(But what if someone was putting up a picture frame in the next room, or there was an earthquake, or….)
