There's something about a cozy old-fashioned kitchen that reminds me of homemade cobbler and cold days with stew simmering on the stove.
Vintage tablecloths and rolling pins. Reminds me of rolling out biscuit dough for breakfast. Back then people often had gravy with biscuits and ham and eggs.
You'd pour gravy over the biscuits, and it was so good.
Simple spaces. Using what you have. Making it work.
Fresh bread straight out of the oven, with some butter or honey. The kitchen smelling of yeast and flour.
Eat-in kitchens have always been my favorite. I don't like the formality of dining rooms. I like to eat where the food was prepared.
Organization. A piece of pegboard can take care of a lot of kitchen items.
