They seem a good complement to the star of the kitchen. Our black and white vintage stove.
Both are reproductions of classic styles available at Van Dykes Restorers. A fabulous resource with an online catalog truly staggering with its huge array of items available for our shopping enjoyment.

A charm filled eat-in kitchen in the Baton Rouge garden district home of designer Carl Palasota beckons to me. The painted wooden floors, decoupaged botanicals and a lovely antique chair pulled out just waiting for me to sit down to breakfast.
Remember when I posted about this striking black and white eat-in kitchen. Apparently it captured the attention of the talented Fifi Flowers. And behold her creation - a wonderful artistic rendering. LOVE it! And I almost missed it in the busy fog I've been in. (FYI there are many posts half formed in my minds eye, stay tuned) That would have been a shame.

And the sophisticated eat-in kitchen in this Montreal home is every bit of elegant. The coffered ceiling is a favorite of mine and the floors are worth admiration as well.
