On a Lighter Note

I like the distinctive yet unassuming atmosphere generated by this room. Appliances are pushed back into the walls, emphasizing their role in the composition while minimizing their bulk. The globe fixtures—the only round elements in the kitchen—lighten things up in more ways than one.

  1. I am commenting six months after the fact, but this picture keeps coming up in your "You might also like" section, and I find it irresistible. The cabinet doors look very much like ice box doors, something I am just old enough to remember, as if ice boxes had been transported into a modernist future. I remember the iceman delivering to our post war La Verne College quonset hut, which means that my memory goes back to about 18 months, earlier if you count vague memories of crawling in the grass. So, perhaps my reasons are entirely personal, but I still like this kitchen very much.

    By the way, you're entirely right about the recessed appliances. This isn't done much, I suspect, because it requires building the kitchen around the appliances, rather than fitting the appliances to to an empty kitchen. Not only are your titles worth the price, but your content is the best around.
