It Is What It Is

The designers who were dealt this petite, problematic space recognized it would be far better to acknowledge its limits than attempt to disguise them. As a result, there's an atelier quality to the space that—for me, at least—is irresistible. mlinaric-henry-zervudachi.com

  1. Their designs are absolute luxuriance, even in the limiting context of black and white. Wonderful choice. Imagine how different this kitchen would be if the ceiling were a few inches lower, a few millim├Ętres, or if the pictures had gone any higher. All the difference in the world. Perhaps I'm a worrywart, but I worry about things of value being too close to a stove or where people can accidently bump into them. Obviously, the owner of this kitchen is very deliberate.

  2. One way of circumventing the damage issue: Have high-quality copies made of the original photographs, and hang those in the vulnerable spots. For extra insurance, use French cleats as a support system.
    Thanks for raising the concern.
