I like it and I like your style of narration (it's different from the other styles, so it's a bit of a breath of fresh air!). I think you should embrace "the starkness that seems to be taking hold". It will look less stark when furnishings and deco are up, and I think it provides a nice contrasting feel.

...

Don't put anything. It's fine.

We are seeing the "emptiness" because we have all been made aware of it. NOBODY will visit your home and go "OMG did you see that empty space above the fridge!?"...

My opinion is that if you put something there, it will inevitably draw attention to it and to the space. Leave it as is -- it's fine...

I heard, and I'm sorry this is not a first hand account, that it is not uncommon in China for people to get a quick nap about anywhere in public places.

I hope I'm not repeating an urban legend or a stereotype, if I am please excuse my ignorance...

I do witness here (in Canada) people sleeping on buses and at university libraries, however I never seen anyone sleep in a store... It would be so loud and one would feel so vulnerable, no?

I saw the first picture and thought "black paint???". Then I saw the completed look and I totally changes my mind: the black paint transforms the space into a modern and gorgeous backyard!!

I like the look but I like to just open the door and go barefoot so it would be a bit painful (ow-ow-ow-ow-ow).

As a side note I heard that cocoa mulch is toxic to pets :(

Hi my name is Marie-Eve and I am a shucker of corn.

Hear me out: If shucking the corn is allowed in the store or at the farm stand (in Qu├ębec it is usually allowed) I do shuck the corn quick, and I leave space for others around me to grab corn or shuck their own.

2 reasons why people do it: check the quality of the corn and reduce some of the silk-mess at home.

That being said, if I do buy corn and shuck it on the spot, we make sure to eat it the same day.

Thank you for this post and hopefully it will help prevent deaths/accidents.

Might I also add that pets are also at risk of drowning, especially if they do not know how to get out of the pool or if there is no obvious access out. *Most* pets can swim yes, but if they become panicked and disoriented, they will get exhausted fast. Pet owners that have a pool should teach their pet where and how to get out of the pool - it sounds silly but it could save their pet's life.

First of all, thank you for proposing diversified content that appeals to all tastes and interests.

Personally, I like a "everything in moderation" approach, so I am fine with The Kitchn continuing to have a diversity of recipe from healthy & light to indulgent & rich. I think people generally know what they should eat more of, and eat less of, therefore the diet topic is not that appealing (to me).

I do like the idea of nutritional information but I have also been ok with not having it on the site in the past.

Just...keep up the good work :)

Why Spices Are Some of the Most Important Ingredients in My Kitchen Kitchen Diary: Emily in Los Angeles

I don't have a home office because I spent my day, er, at the office, and I keep it tidy and pretty (as pretty as a cubicle can be). I also dust the surface every week.

I get weird looks and comments from my colleagues... I wouldn't say I can't concentrate when it is not tidy, but I feel more focused when things are in their place.

One colleague of mine has piles of papers everywhere, leaves her cupboard doors open, has old coffee cups, crusty bowls (ew) and shoes every where on the floor... Yet she is very productive, so I think it's really to each their own.

But...yes, mine is nicer to look at ;-)
