Kitchen and Tabletop

Over at Remodelista, Michelle Slatalla wrote about the death of the dining room and the birth of the formal kitchen.  A formal kitchen is an all-purpose room where elements of a dining room like nice lighting, fine rugs, and good china happily coexist with the pots and pans, the appliances, the dish towels.  The collections I have put together for the kitchen are a combination of practical items mixed with decorative elements.
