And so the countdown to Thanksgiving begins in earnest. On Thursday, few kitchens—mine included—will look as clean and organized as this one, with its spotless counters and spare composition of open storage. I was surprised learn these cabinets are made of bamboo, a material which I aesthetically [but not in principle] eschew; the grain is too monotonous for my taste. But here, that seems to be assuaged by the dark stain of the wood. And the smack of robin's egg blue helps a lot, too. wedowood.dk
