What would you do with this room?

I stumbled across this kitchen the other day. And while it is far from perfect (it’s too clean, minimal and one-dimensional) I kept looking at it and wondered why it had captured my attention.

The most interesting features are the early 20th century operating theatre style lamps and that amazing super sized photograph of a lived in kitchen in South America or Asia complete with pots, crockery, plastic shopping baskets, colanders of food ready for cooking.

That’s what this room lacks: life. And, of course, the walls would look better darker, and it just needs some messing up, some more layers, stuff on the counters. Plus a small lamp to cast some ambient lighting.

What do you think? Is this just right, or could be better?

  1. I defenatley find it too clean too. But, you can spot some green chairs in the back, there’s a bowl of lemon or fruits on the table. I’d like to imagine there’s plenty more colour, more life, where we cannot see and that this is just a very clean spot in the kitchen;)
    I agree, I think the walls would look great if they were darker.

      Nina, The green chairs . . . well spotted. Hadn’t seen them myself.

    Evokes a morgue. Even a jug of flowers would help.

      Haha! Yes! Not a good feeling to evoke in a kitchen.
