Details from my Kitchen

The most effective kind of education is that a child should play amongst lovely things. (Plato)
I feel like that child today, as I see daylight in my completed kitchen.

The upper cabinets.

Lower cabinetry.

Enjoying the contrast between the E0 birch ply and the red hardwood.

I didn't know my builders were installing this metal edge. I've seen the tiles just stop in some kitchens, but mine have a punctuation mark.

Steel handles from Hafele -- comfortable, strong and recyclable.

Red timber, steel edging, speckled grey tiles, 'Nougat' Caesarstone: I am so pleased by the colour combinations.

The character marks in recycled timber -- nail holes:

A borer track through the recycled timber:

Light glows through the quartz on the bench edge.

The timber shelf between the kitchen and family room. I keep stroking it.

End grain on the timber shelf between kitchen and family room.
