Thank you so much for your patience while we were working on the recent site’s tech issues. I know how frustrating it can be on your end and I promise everything should be back to normal – and even better soon, as we are working on a major site update.
Today, I wanted to share with you the kitchen of Ilaria Fatone. I visited her in Aix en Provence for the book and fell in absolute love with her kitchen. Ilaria is one of the families presented in my upcoming book and she redesigned her kitchen like a maestro. I love the natural wood, the countertops, and the general vibe of this kitchen, don’t you?
Ilaria completely remodeled her kitchen, but with a tight budget in mind. She used some standard Ikea cabinets, but asked a woodworker to create simple wooden doors to modernize the ensemble and “personalize” her standard cabinets. She went for Frake/Limba wood, an exotic wood originally from West Africa, and loved the texture so much, she decided to keep it natural. What a brilliant idea! The kitchen has a modern and Scandinavian feel, while staying warm and inviting. I also love all the little details Ilairia added in her kitchen such as the wall wooden boxes or the timeless corian countertops. This kitchen is proof that you don’t have to spend a fortune when you remodel a kitchen.
What do you think? Did you use any [affordable!] genius trick when you remodeled your kitchen?
