Someone Else's Kitchen

I don't usually do this, but I have to show you guys a kitchen that I ran across in The New York Times.  It took my breath away.  Literally.  And Garrett, who's a little harder to impress, called it "ab-sol-ute-ly stunning".  Honestly I'm having a love affair with the whole house and the beautiful article on it.  I found myself completely wrapped up in the family.  Author Penelope Green had me at "they were lovers of houses." So on to the kitchen.

Glorious, right?

It's like that quote from the Sex and the City movie when Big and Carrie look at that amazing apartment and Carrie says, "So this is where they keep the light."  Enough said, right?

Except I want to say more.  I mean those windows are the closest thing to Heaven I think I've ever seen!  Plus the cabinets and millwork are impeccable.  The lights and marble and stove are perfect and how about that courtyard view...!

One complaint I have about houses - yes, even old houses - is that there isn't enough natural light.  Tall ceilings and an abundance of windows are probably the architectural features I look for most in a house.  But that's a hard combination to find.  Why can't more houses have walls of windows like this one?!

Anyway, enough of my rant.  Do yourself a favor and check out the article.  I think you'll fall in love too!
