Warehouse stalking and my favourite kitchen

Posted on Thu, 1 Mar 2012 by midcenturyjo

I love real estate stalking. By lurking online I find fabulous houses that I could never see inside in real life and sometimes, just sometimes I stumble across something very special to me. I’ve stalked my favourite kitchen. Ever since I saw the Prue Ruscoe photo above in Inside Out magazine many years ago I was smitten. This was it. This was the kitchen of my dreams. Just a tight shot. No real idea what the space was truly like but it didn’t matter. My imagination filled in the rest of the space. Except for a few props used for the shoot this is the house in my imagination. This is the house come to life. Except for the bathroom. That’s beyond my dreams. I’m moving in as soon as I can rob a bank. I even still love the kitchen in its pared back state. I can always make it look like Prue’s photo. Link here while it lasts but don’t you dare buy it! It’s all mine.

There is a lot to love about the kitchen and the whole place. Gorgeous.

That microwave oven is placed too high to be highly functional. Why not swap it with the books on the counter?

I really like the use of the wood in this home and the kitchen is so clean and simple – but the fridge door – does if not open the wrong way???

The kitchen is indeed missing the woman's touch – and practicality. But I love the black. The ceiling and kitchen backsplash really pull the place together, making the space more contained while the choice of finish avoids it becoming too heavy. Plus, so many openings to the garden. Gorgeous.

By the way, well-spotted!

This space is really fantastic in its simplicity. So unpretentious. I would love to move in asap too if it were in the Philippines.
