Sometimes when I am watching a design show on television, or I open up a
magazine and see and ad for a very modern kitchen, I will think to myself ~ that's
attractive, sleek and modern, but just not me. I love a kitchen that is clean of course,
but I also love aged and worn and well loved elements. Copper and aged brick
and warm wood tones can do a lot to warm up today's modern stainless appliances.
I love a kitchen that doesn't look staged, but rather proudly displays its
sense of purpose and it's heart of the home sensibility.
Love that copper!
Of course, this Paris kitchen was staged by the set designers of the movie
Julie and Julia, but one gets the sense that something yummy and wonderful
is going to come from this space. It's layered and cozy while being serious
at the same time. I can just imagine the wonderful aromas, and perhaps
some lovely French tunes in the background and a glass of wine.
Oh well, just dreaming a bit and just wanted to share the thought
with you. Have a great start to the weekend.
Big Texas Hugs,
