Cooking in Elegance




I think there is a strong possibility that I could be persuaded to cook on a consistent basis if I was given this gorgeous kitchen! Like a Christian Loubatin shoeprecision in construction, manufactured with fine materials, and classically stylish. Can you compare a kitchen to a shoe? There's such beauty in this warm, modern space. I love the little touches of glamour, with the crystal chandelier, elegant marble, the painting propped on the cabinetry, and the soft drapery. The only thing it's missing is a great table and chairs in the open area...And perhaps an ostentatiously large, decorative, gold framed mirror—propped against that blank wall on the right, in the second photo...

What would you add to finish this space?




Also, I just came across the pet bowl set, that I think perfectly matches this kitchen. If the owners had a pet, don't you think this would be ideal?

(These images have been saved in our files for about. 6 years. Any ideas?)

  2. What would I add to finish this space? Myself standing in it! Although I don't know how much cooking I could get done, I'd probably just stand around gawking at it. hee hee

  5. Just add some pots and pans and I would be ready to go in this kitchen. Actually this kitchen should come with a chef. For a traditionist at heart, I could sure go for this sublime creation. This is design......gorgeous!

  7. A beautiful kitchen. I think a room like this is better left paired down and simple. I love the addition of the small piece or art and the chandelier to add some life and personality.

  8. I love this kitchen! The kitchen is the heart of the home. I would put my antique wrought iron table with modern unassuming med/dark coloured chairs in the open space...inviting guests/family to hang out and enjoy :)

  9. I've never considered putting 'office' type chairs in a kitchen.. but I like it! I love fusion rooms and with all the formality, this kitchen can easily double as a meeting space!

  10. Wow Sarah! This might be my new favorite kitchen! I love how it's both modern and antique all at once. And yes to the huge gold mirror you are envisioning on the wall - that would complete this space in my opinion!

  11. That's beautiful! Not at all me, but stunning :) I think when it comes to shoes, I am a high heel kind of girl, but if you compare my perfect kitchen to a shoe (actually I absolutely adore this idea!!!) it would most likely be a pair of clogs :))) Of course, I am talking more like Celine or Chanel kind of clogs, not the rubber horror :), but still...
    As for this stainless classy perfection, I'd add a plant or two.. Something with a long stem, massive scarlett red flower and dark green leaves. :)

    Wishing you a wonderful evening and great Friday, darling!

  14. I'm so glad that you are enjoying this kitchen! David actually used this image in a design project when we were in school, and has kept it, safely filed away...I remember just loving it, and thought that you might, too :)
