Like it, although is Conshohocken really a forest?
Like it, wish I could rebuild this way.
Questions I’m pondering as I think about what our kitchen will look like:
Why is everything white these days? Do none of these people have children?
Are we picking modern designs that won’t work in this space?
Are most of the designs we’ve identified as to our liking “cold” when one of our key things is to have a “warm” kitchen?
General principles (churned up by exhausted school teachers who are not architects)
*Simplicity: in thinking about what we want for all of these spaces, we want things to be as clean and as simple as possible. We are never going to be folks who can carefully put a room together or folks who can manage a lot of stuff; we want the various rooms to be as straight forward as possible.
*Functional: we like cooking and we like being in the kitchen. We want a space that makes people want to be in the kitchen.
*Light: To me, light goes along with simplicity. As much natural light as possible and as open as possible.
*Fidelity to the original design/purpose of the house: we don’t care much about this. I think our front room will remain the only room that has most of the original features but it’s pretty much the only room at this point.
