Kitchen of the [Dark] Day

It's winter at its worst, today: not a glimpse of sun, with the oppressive pairing of snow and rain completing the dismal* picture. This small but radiant kitchen is my personal aesthetic antidote to the situation. The cabinets, should you be wondering, are hammered silver.

* Etymology Lesson of the Day: 'Dismal' refers to the late Middle English term for the two days of the month that were considered unlucky. That traces back to the Anglo-Norman French dis mal, and in turn stems from the medieval Latin dies mali, which predictably translates as 'evil days.' deniot.com
