Goodness we are having a time trying to get Spring to really get Sprung over here. But the weather foibles are not dampening the mood over at the Chateau, because I am delighted to report that the kitchen is finally 100% finished! Which seems appropriate because it coincided with the release of my new book, WEDDING GIRL, which so far, people seem to be enjoying... if you haven't picked up your copy yet, I hope you will, it is the perfect thing to get you into your summer reading!
Now on to the yummies! Today I have some great pics to share with you of the new kitchen. Credit for all photos to the most excellent Mike Kaskel, architectural photographer extraordinaire.
Ready to see????
|A different view of the U, capturing some of the steel beam details...we love how these original beams are fitting into the contemporary design!|
|A pretty good view from the back porch door of the whole space, you can see the baking area across the way, and you can really see the Cosentino/StoneMasters counters in all their glory, plus a peek at the custom Larchwood Canada butcher block.|
|Standing in front of the rangetop looking across at the baking section with the BlueStar electric wall oven and the Gaggenau warming drawer underneath.|
|Getting a look from the end of the island, you can see the integrated Miele dishwasher to the left of the sink.|
|The baking nook! Another hidden Miele dishwasher to the left of the sink, and the Marvel wine cooler to the right. The TV is hidden behind the artwork!|
|Standing behind the dining table and looking out, you can get a look at the Marvel fridge and freezer.|
|Final look at the main cooking wall, highlights the backsplash, a single pane of back-painted glass...so easy to keep clean and a really slick look!|
|Poggenpohl drawers can hold up to 200 pounds of stuff! And I'm in love with these plate and bowl organizers, the racks lift right out of the drawers for easy use on buffets or for setting the table. Genius!|
|This is what a happy Polymath looks like!|
That is the little photo tour of the day...I hope you like seeing the finished product as much as I am enjoying cooking in it! There will be many more details to come, but when I saw these pictures, I couldn't resist sharing them with everyone who has been following along on the journey!
Yours in Good Taste,
