French country kitchen here. Don't you admire the portraits? Can't you here the discussion, "Margaux and Louis were relegated to the kitchen. Wonder what that means? Wonder why they didn't make it to the dining room?" Maybe they were the French ancestors. Another way to dress up the utilitarian space-the crystal chandelier. Why not? Life is short. Enjoy. Use the "good stuff".
This kitchen seems to have such warmth and history. I could sit her for quite a while. This is one of those kitchens that I'd have such fun finding out the story behind each and every object.
Look. Another chandelier in the kitchen. Notice the outdoor cafe chairs--a French picnic in an farmhouse kitchen?
What am I seeing? A revival of the "warm and cozy" kitchen? It certainly looks that way. What do you say? Take it or leave it? Are we over the crisp clean utilitarian look?
