I have to admit it has been awhile since I have seen anything that inspired me on the design front. That is until I saw this kitchen on the Canadian House & Home website designed by Tommy Smythe, who works with another favorite designer of mine, Sarah Richardson. To me, this kitchen gets my heart fluttering. I love the contrast of the black and white. With lots of carrera marble and classic touches, I'm in love. Check out the floors! Gorgeous!
Ina Garten, a.k.a. Barefoot Contessa, does it again... a new cookbook coming out on October 26th. I have already pre-ordered it at Amazon. I own all of her cookbooks and let me tell you, she doesn't disappoint. All of her recipes are easy, delicious and I have never made anything of hers I didn't like. I'm counting down the days for this to arrive on my doorstep!
I dream of having an outdoor space like this. It belongs to Heather Christo here in Seattle. I especially love all of the chandeliers hanging from the pergola. So many things I could do in a space like this... have my morning tea, host a Sunday brunch, girls night out with wine and appetizers, the possibilities are endless.
