I need a name for this room .. it has so much goin' ohn
It's a laundry, it's a pantry, it's my linen closet, where the cats will eat, a mudroom ( kinda ), a place to dock and recharge your mobile devices, a wrapping station, a bar for parties ( because like, we totally party all the time )
It's missing a matching laminex top on the other "laundry" side of the room atm. It's sitting in the kitchen and i've noticed a minor chip, so i'm suspecting that is the reason.
I've photoshopped in the lights and the mirror on the pic to the right .. just playing around.. thinking..
And although you probably can't see it, I came to realise recently that in part, I was inspired by one of the most amazing Wine Bars/venues/cafes/anything I have ever had the pleasure of visiting.
Because although mine is a sanitised, clean, sparkly bright version, it still reminds me of France:
The Café de la Promenade to be exact.
And apologies to almost everyone ( the vegans, the animal liberationalists ), but have you ever had a hamburger made with seared fresh foie gras? Because I have never tasted anything more amazing in all my life.
It is the house burger (le hambourgueil maison) and it literally blew me into the next room.
Which was their dark musty cellar. Sensory overload.
Despite visiting many fine places in France and seeing many interesting things, this Christmas past I made an entire photobook for my husband just.of.this.cafe. It's that worthy. You can see it here, but the little pics don't do justice like the big printed coffee table book, where I can almost taste the wine.. and the cheese..
It also made it easier than selecting from 50million photos from all over the place to make the print deadline, but hey... let's not draw straws, ok?
I'm even thinking I might use some of these images.. perhaps instead of a mirror I might do some photographic wallpaper in B&W ... hmm .. maybe .. but it may be too light for that .. we'll see..
