From what I can see in this shot, there’s really nothing about this kitchen I dislike and many elements that I think are great: the floor, cabinetry, appliances, table and chairs are all right up my alley. I almost always like a hanging door on a track, so no problem there. I do wonder about stacking items so high you need a ladder to reach them, plus, the space is awfully stark. What do you think?
I’ve always wanted — literally since I was a kid wanted — a trestle table like this. Not that I have the space for it right now, but that’s beside the point, really. And this one, all wisdom and beauty through years of use, combined with the groovilicious chairs and that stone floor, is just about perfect.
My favorite design these days is practiced by real people renovating their own spaces. Starting with Blake Dollahite (who I’ve yet to give proper respect to with a post dedicated to his work) and in the past few weeks including RedneckModern and others, it is this work I find most inspiring. Today I learned about Wood&Faulk and am excited to be able to watch the progress of his work on his blog (where he also sells his handcrafted goods).
