Telling Stories

Mixing old and new together can be hugely satisfying [I am speaking from the vantage point of a beholder here, not a creator]. Antique objects, like this repurposed china cupboard, imbue a space, no matter how new or sterile it may be, with at least a smidgen of history. They are survivors of a past. Contemporary elements give us confidence—tangible proof, even—that we are moving forward; change, it is frequently said and widely believed, is good.

This small kitchen has provoked me into thinking about these matters.
