le petit kitchen.
i have this thing for funky little kitchens. the ones i favor usually have herbs and plants growing, bowls of fresh farmer’s market produce, and are occasionally kind of disheveled, a bit kitschy, sometimes cramped, but more often than not, effortlessly cool. they are usually european, as the paumes books are great at pointing out. even boxes of corn flakes, pasta, canned goods, cooking oils and liquor bars appear to look chic. why is that? if i left mine scattered about, they would look cluttered and slothenly. and, instead theirs are endlessly charming.
i love an intimate kitchen. it’s kinda where everyone gathers, no matter how small, at every single party. here’s what i mean.
