Here’s my kitchen when the sun is shining – the cats love it. We inherited the aqua wall color, but I think it’s great. Kitchens should be bright and happy rooms. When we looked over the house for the first time we made a beeline for the kitchen and found it almost unnecessary to look at anything else. The windows look west and south, for lots of light.
Here’s the other view. The two little wood kitchen carts are from Ikea and they make cooking in this kitchen possible – it’s a rather long and oddly laid-out room. Note the stepladder at the end of the room so I can reach anything higher than one shelf up.
Here’s our ever-growing cookbook and food writing collection. I’m gradually cataloging them on my page at – feel free to take a look! FYI, the bottom shelf is empty because there’s a heat vent behind it, and Stella likes to sleep there -if we didn’t leave it open she’d probably knock the books out.
