Where shall I begin? 1] It is Monday. 2] There is an arctic's worth of snow on the ground outside. 3] More of said detested White Stuff is predicted to fall tonight. It is enough to force me into hibernation, or at least draw the drapes and sulk for the rest of the day. But this kitchen coaxes me out of that funk with its far-better window treatment. The shutters screen the nivosity from view while letting in light, and the dimensionality of the louvers echo the exquisite wooden handles on the cabinets. workstead.com
