I think people are missing the point on this. What was lost was a tiny portion of floor space in the back corner in front of the dishwasher, though this was probably fairly dead space anyway. Could you argue it is smaller now? Sure! But for that negative you have gained AN ENTIRE WALL OF CABINETS and counter space. This was never going to be a kitchen that a group of people threw dishes around, singing songs, while they wiped them dry with Bill Murray! Come on. Also, the perception that it is much smaller is simply because the after photo is taken a few steps back from the before photo (notice how the window appears narrower). People be silly, yo! But i do agree that there isn't anything particularly pioneering about the redesign.

Please don't paint it. It's beautiful as it is. any color is going to take emphasis away from the brilliant cushion and table and your other rad pieces. I'm a firm believer that walls are there to hold up the roof. Let them do their job and let the color come from your furniture, art, cushions, etc.

The place looks great, liz. Such a wonderful mix of new & classic, clean & crisp yet cosy, and practical. And i like the reminder not to run out of almond milk or cupcakes-- so crucial!
