So serene – kitchens to linger in

10.17.2011 · Posted in Kitchens

Some islands of serenity, because we all need a little calming influence at the start of the week, don’t we? My first is a kitchen I would so love to linger in – and it has a proper sit-down table inviting me to do just that:

The cabinets, painted in Farrow and Ball’s “New White”, have a relaxed, vintagey charm to them, don’t they, even if they’re not authentically Georgian? And don’t you love the warm  gleam of the brass pulls in the sunlight? Lovely photography from David Merewether at Wealden Times,  as always.

But you don’t need the vast spaces of a Georgian mansion to create  inviting seating – just look at this charming cafe style table in a Madrid apartment (via)

There is certainly something (ok, a lot!) to be said for soaring ceilings and acres of empty floor space if serenity is your goal: (via)

These images prove, once again, that however charming and delightful the displays on your open shelving, for a truly soothing mood you can’t beat walls of light colored painted cabinets. Then again, in real life, could all that airy perfection be just too soothingly soporific?
