Day 891: The Kitchen In My Dreams
I'm quite sure I've said this at least a dozen times before, but this kitchen is completely perfect in my eyes. Joni posted it -- along with the rest of the beautiful house -- on Cote de Texas last week, but I couldn't help but share. The recently remodeled home has a decidedly European feeling, and the kitchen is no different (in fact, it reminds me of my favorite English cupboard-makers, Plain English).
Next to the range, utensils are scattered in ironstone pitchers. Bread boards and antique copper contribute to the European feeling.
Most of the counters are Belgium bluestone, but the island -- an antique cabinet from Watkins Culver in Houston -- is topped with marble.
The kitchen is without upper cabinets, but clearly storage is no problem.
On the other side of the island, the breakfast table is surround by bistro-style chairs.
And beyond that is a sitting area. If I lived here I would call it a "keeping room," just for fun.
Even the pantry is outfitted with a cute antique lantern.
Notice the hardware on the doors, Joni points out that it was all special ordered unfinished brass and given a special tarnish to look old. So beautiful! Thank you for sharing this wonderful house, Joni!
