Cooking in a kitchen like this?-Melanie Brandman Inspiration

I would die to have a 2nd county home with a kitchen and living room like this (Ok, yes it's true that I have yet to have a "first" home but it does not mean a girl can't dream... I see nothing wrong with optimistically planning your 2nd especially if you were told by a Chinese friend that your palm showed you would retire by the time you were 30!!) .

Anyways, wouldn't this be a great place to cook a big meal for friends during a weekend in the country with jugs of wine, a rich chocolate dessert and maybe picked veggies from your garden out front? I think it is the perfect mix of natural colors, stained pine floor, sharp angles yet still soft and modern. I love the simple stools by the kitchen island and the wild rug for some reason as well.

This is the work of Melanie Brandman, an interior designer who transformed a dark dingy cabin in Livingston NY into a bright and open weekend haven. Check out the article in the NY times.

  1. Melanie's very fabulous Catskills cabin (aka Amber Lake Cottage) is actually available for rent through my company, www.RedCottageInc.com . So you, too, can live the dream (even if it is just for a long weekend).
