Fabulous Room Friday 07.28.11

Today’s Fabulous Room isn’t quite complete, but that is what I love about it. I find this image incredibly intriguing. Every last detail in this space is absolutely gorgeous, from the stunning herringbone floors and the beautiful mouldings to the floor-to ceiling window and the fabulous carrera marble island. If it were not for the sink in the island, I would have thought this room served as a study, a dining room or even a living room. I am incredibly intrigued not only by the sheer beauty of this room, but I can’t help but wonder how it functions as a kitchen. Where do the cabinetry and appliances fit into the equation? I just wish I could find images of the rest of the room. I found this image via House and Home which linked back to photographer, Magnus Marding’s site. It turns out, the home is an historic British estate belonging to none other than Ilse Crawford.

It appears that the expansive room is divided into the kitchen and the dining room featured above. Unfortunately, I still don’t have a definitive answer as far as the cabinets and appliances are concerned, but my guess is they may be lined up against the wall on the left. Either way, the space is positively gorgeous!

Wow! How unique, Paloma! The floors and crow moldings are the most amazing features here for me. I probably would get tired of the brown walls, but I'd love it for a while. Something different.

Thanks for this inspiration today.

Yummy color combo! The chairs look like M&Ms against the chocolate wall.
