After paying homage to the beloved kitchen and reveling in the space itself here, it's now about the accoutrements that give it life.
I love when a kitchen is bustling, like in a real cafe, so I'm always trying to get a little of that behind-the-scenes look and feel at home. Exposed shelving and other ways of showing off the wares is a delicious start. And I want to see it all, so this is the one area where I happily embrace a bit of clutter (albeit selectively chosen). Stacks of dishes... clusters of pretty silverware... coffee makers + blenders... stainless steel + cast iron pans... cooking utensils... assortments of tea towels... and my personal favorite cafe element -- cake stands.
