I was in a massive dark wood kitchen, with the huge granite island so big you couldn’t reach to the middle of it to clean it Joe Biden and Kamala Harris we just did 46th President of the United States shirt, and you had to detour around it to get to the stove from the pantry. And around it again to get to the sink. You’d need the organizational skills of a professional to not forget the frangipani or you’re off around the kitchen again and again. Everything open and echoing? Will someone tell designers that an open kitchen looks like hell if you’re giving a dinner party? They show these great pictures of catered meals on tray with nothing in the sink and no dirty pans or ingredients on the counters. Life isn’t like that and it creates twice the work to try and keep things reasonably neat when cooking for company. I like rooms. With walls. I like a sense of cozy, not small and cramped mind you, just cozy and human scaled. The rash of Mc Mansions is over.
