This Kitch Ain't Missin' A Stitch

Pin It


Seriously? Looks like I may be saving up for a bit longer for the kitchen re-do now that I've seen this.

I will battle anyone to the bitter end who says that all white kitchens are a trend––I firmly believe that they are a staple in fine estates and the classic finishes will outlast almost any fly-by-night furor. My heart pittapatta'd when I saw this on Decorati today. What extraordinary talent Ms. Williams has! I LOVE that she respects tradition, yet blends a smidge of modernism into her interiors––a great approach to being ahead of the curve, agree?


I mean, this is probably hands-down, one of the most functional kitchens I've ever seen. What luxury! I'll remember this next time I bump into the dishwasher door while carrying a hot pot on the way to the sink, or shimmy my way between the fridge and the entrance into my kitchen when Mr. Hotpiece has it open scrounging for bachelor food. 



Notice the graceful curve of not only the island, but the corner curio piece. No space was wasted whatsoever and everything appears to have a place––large, deep drawers; two workspaces; plentiful seating. This is marvelous! 

To read the whole story {and it's written quite well thanks to Karin Edwards}, check it out on Decorati here.

Gorgeous! White kitchens with white marble and wood floors are really the only truly classic kitchens. I built one 20 years ago and it's still as lovely today as it was then. The same cannot be said for my friends' dark kitchens built in the same era. Cabinet wood styles will ALWAYS change and the cherry and walnut cabinets of today will become the dreaded oak of tomorrow.

Anon- I couldn't have said it better myself! That is exactly the schpiel I give my clients that want stained wood cabinets. Whether they listen to me is a whole nutha story!
