Cinema Kitchen Magic...

I love this kitchen featured in the movie, It's Complicated. Meryl Streep's character, a bakery owner/caterer, obviously knows her way around a kitchen. And, what a sublime kitchen it is!

Belgium inspired, cozy without being cutesy, sophisticated without being sterile, it's comfortable, well equipped, and functional. Crisp white dishes and sparkling glassware are displayed on open shelves. Stainless steel and copper cookware hangs conveniently over the double range/oven. And potted herbs and bowls of fruit are casually placed within reach on the iron and marble free standing work counter.

Just looking at this kitchen makes me crave a plate of fabulous pasta, with roasted garlic, pesto, sundried tomatoes, a sprinkling of cracked pepper, and some shaved parmesan. Throw in some crusty bread with an herb-infused olive oil for dipping, and an espresso with a tangy-sweet lemon tart for dessert, and I'll be there at eight with a couple of bottles of wine!
