In the Kitchen














Be it shiny and new or rustic and patinated these kitchens all have their own distinct, and dare I say delicious, flavor. My favorites combine sleek modern functionality peppered with a bit of old world, such as a beautifully hewn wooden floor, a time-worn industrial light fixture, a vintage poster, a delightfully re-purposed cabinet, or hand-painted tiles from another time and place. All these seemingly disparate elements come together to make one tasty dish, don't you think?

I completely agree. I would never have considered that red wood(?) in the kitchen before but it really works in that kitchen with the open shelving on it. I think that one is my favorite.
