Love it or Leave it?

The June 2010 issue of ELLE DECOR features a pretty remarkable kitchen renovation by Manhattan party planner, Bronson van Wyck. van Wyck and his partner, Andrew Fry share an apartment in a New York building from 1884. They set out to create a kitchen space that would evoke images of what you would expect to find in an English or French manor house. They certainly achieved their goal! While the kitchen is thoroughly modern, it certainly has a European, country feel. The use of bold, dark colors against white subway tile feels supremely English to me.

{I love the open shelving above the sink.}

{How great is the chalkboard paint on the refrigerator? I love the beautiful colors of the glasses on display! What do you think of the single light bulb in a plain socket? }

{So, on to the big question. What do you think of the vent hood sheathed in white subway tiles? I really think the kitchen is fantastic, but I have reservations about it. Is it ingenious or odd? What’s the verdict…love it or leave it?}
