Melancholy Monday

Sigh. Even with the promise of some warm and sunny days ahead, I've got a case of the end-of-summer sads. This kitchen foreshadows the seasonal transition in several ways: The room is bright, but with a bluish, cold light; the materials, while natural, are so very neutral; the open lines of the space evoke emptiness more than airiness. [If the rafters hadn't been painted out, that last observation wouldn't hold up.] In truth, I like this kitchen very much—it's just the wrong space at the wrong time.
