Kitchen for a Cloudy Day

By now, I ought to be used to it: a tease of sun in the morning, then the clouds [and not infrequently, the rain] close in for the day. Disheartening—yet we persist.

I offer up this kitchen as a salve to all who had to cancel BBQ plans this holiday. With its white-lacquered cabinets, it provides a passive source of light, bouncing sun [Google it] around the room. While the narrowness of the island might at first seem to be stingy in the amount of work space it provides, think again—the limited surface area means everything is within easy reach.
