For ages, I have been sifting through and collecting images of kitchens I love. I do this for kitchens far more than any other interior space of a house. Perhaps it’s because I like to cook – maybe I can imagine myself preparing meals and bakery items in these spaces? I rarely tear out a photo of a bathroom and feel the need to document it. The kitchen, the heart of a home… Every one I find has a combination of wood beams, stone, and a fireplace or a gigantic glass front pantry chalk full of china. Yes, it’s true. I have a kitchen “type.”
I know. By now we’ve all seen Julianne Moore’s (ex) West Village Townhouse on Apartment Therapy, in New York Magazine, and posted all over the internet. The kitchen is by a Brooklyn based design firm called Made. They’ve combined a design studio, a fabrication workshop, and a contracting team under one roof in Red Hook to create super-smart interior design solutions. I love how the modern kitchen is placed into this rustic space. The light fixtures and mid-century home furnishings seemingly bridge the gap.
These images are from the portfolio of lifestyle writer and stylist Natalie Thiart . I was drawn to the beams in the ceiling, and the glass front cabinet. Notice: on the shelves to the left, like items are grouped = huge visual impact. Natalie has styled everything from architecture and advertisements to tabletops – you’re sure to find something to delight your senses. The whole website is a feast for the eyes!
I’d like to invite you to a new to me blog called Willow Decor. I spent way too much time oohing-ahhhing and oogling the lovely home decor inspiration over at Willow Decor this morning! If you haven’t been, I suggest you pour yourself a second cup, pop by and get ready to be inspired!
