Image above: I was chef in residence at Leighton House a couple of years ago during the Nour festival and one of the workshops was on spice mixtures and I took the opportunity to reorganize my spice cupboard and bought a whole lot of Weck jars. Even though they don’t all stack up perfectly, I love them and I love the fact that they are completely hermetically sealed preserving the spices in perfect condition. They also look great.
While we love a good, all-white kitchen as much as the next blog, there’s something about a little unexpected bright color, an earthy texture, or some quirky accessorizing that stands out from the pack of conventionally beautiful designs. In the same carefree, adventurous spirit as the summer season, these 10 designs feature a warm, inviting cheer courtesy of their vibrant florals, dusty solids, rustic finishes, energizing accents, and even a vegetable metaphor or two. We can only imagine the pleasure of cooking in any of these summery rooms year-round.
To begin, I had a quick discussion about what my client wanted to achieve. From there, I created a pin board with her. Since we are in two different cities, Portland and Seattle, this was a quick way for us both to share inspiration. After the style was defined, I started sketching a layout and ideas of how the kitchen would look both in plan and three dimensionally. Most everything was shared over email, Skype and Pinterest. I made about three trips to Seattle throughout the process to make sure things were going as planned.
