One subject I know can drive any renovating homeowner crazy is the burden of making choices that won't soon fall out of fashion. Particularly in the kitchen where every decision can represent a small fortune and a nightmare to replace. So sometimes its nice to be reminded that true style never goes out of fashion and that is no where better represented than in Julia Child's kitchen.
Old fashioned in every way, it retains it's warmth and most importantly its function - not unlike Julia herself. Who wouldn't love to cook here?
Lots to love here: that range! the beautiful green of the painted cabinetry! the big table you can can just imagine lots of wine and stories shared over! a shelf stuffed full of cookbooks! Its a beautiful testament to the fact that not all that glitters is not new and stainless.
I know its only a replica but there is something a little bit magical about it all. Photos taken at the Museum of American History Food Exhibit
