I met today with the contractor we are seriously considering for the job, to talk about finish details to include in his pricing estimate.  The kind of details that drive me crazy, including the crispness of the lines on hundred year old trim, and things like that.  But we also talked about kitchen cabinets.  And my inspiration for this kitchen is Claudia Noury-Ello’s kitchen design in a house in Winchester.

I think this kitchen is sublime.  The marble, I am told, is high maintenance and easily stained.  But I am like a fool in love – I don’t care.  I look at this kitchen and, with the exception of the Aga stove, drool.  And drool some more.  And then look at it when the sun is not out, so that it may brighten my day.
