The eat-in kitchen is a feature we don't see so much anymore. I grew up in a house with both an eat-in kitchen and a formal dinning room but today's open plan houses don't really lend themselves to such duplication. So this kitchen is a nod to the luxury of the eat-in kitchen. It's a little bit industrial, a little bit modern and completely contemporary.
As the command center, the bulletin board holds a calendar and a menu from a favorite restaurant (because sometimes you just gotta carry out) and space to catch as many messages as needed. But, there is plenty of cookin' going on in this kitchen, so several cookbooks are close at hand near the stove.
If you forgot how this room started just take a look over here. Jazzi Mini's has completed her version of the challenge and Mad for Mod has gotten started as well. It was certainly a challenge
partly because I chose to do a kitchen, taking about 3 hours (spread over different days) to pull this together. Thanks Margaret for giving us a little creative motivation. I look forward to seeing what everyone else creates.
