I received my February issue of House Beautiful a week ago and finally had a chance to read it. The story of the kitchen renovation by designers Richard Norris and Mark Leslie was a reminder of why design is so captivating. They live in a 1915 Federal Style Home and reworked the interior to allow the kitchen to be relocated to the existing unused dining space. The goal was to create a space that did not feel like a kitchen but to make it translate to more of a dining room. MissionAccomplished!
I've seen mirrors used behind stoves before and rather like the application...but this enormous Napolean III beauty is a show stopper! It serves to not only make the stove virtually dissappear but gives the room such an elegant atmosphere.
I love this photo! A truly fresh and original design. The unique chandelier is actually two antique sconces that were screwed together. The sink is incorporated into a sideboard. The faucet is wall mounted on a rectangle slab of marble and becomes art itself while surrounded by 5 prints in the exact same size hung in a grid. The owners have other prints to change out at whim. A stroke of genius! This kitchen renovation will definately go in my book of favorites.
