How perfect would this room be to sip your morning coffee and read the newspaper?! I’ve always had a love affair for these chairs and credenza, and seeing them together in this room soaked with natural light gives me butterflies (seriously!).
This is one of the best uses of a small space! The loft style bed is accessible by the ladder which also doubles as an interesting looking window treatment! I’m also loving the stainless cabinets with black countertop surround! Delish!
So… after reading Decorno’s post on a dutch oven, it’s got me thinking. The Barefoot Contessa is always using them on her show, and everyone has them listed on registries, but do people really use them? I can’t see spending so much money on one item (Le Creuset) in the kitchen, but if I want to become a master chef, don’t I need the proper tools?
These are my favorite options-
Mario Batali’s Dutch Oven – 6 quart
Le Creuset Dutch Oven – 5 1/2 quart
What do you think? Do you use a dutch oven? Would you recommend that I register for one of these bad boys? Does anyone have experience with using one on an electric cooktop? HELP!
Okay, I might be a little dramatic, but I think my spice rack might be my favorite thing in our condo (besides Ryan of course… ha!). I have all my spices on these racks on the inside of two cabinet doors. Being able to see every spice clearly labeled while I’m cooking makes it so much easier! My theory is that if you’re kitchen isn’t organized properly, it doesn’t make it fun to cook. And, let me tell you… I have fun!
