A Kitchen's Story

 Bon Appétit

Cooking is Love made visible  

Love bakes good cakes and brews good stews!

A touch and mix of cottage, country style kitchen with a little chimney. We especially like the two frosted cabinet, great for keeping spices for our favorite spaghetti on one side. And the other for teapot set collection and wine glasses!

Close-up on kitchen top. To the left of stove are some space for food serving phase, basically we designed our kitchen with a right-to-left concept -breaking down kitchen space into 4 major area: 
1. Food preparation area -This is where food are thawed, garlic/ vegetables are chopped, marinating occurs
2.  Cooking area -As name suggest itself, where food goes over the fire!
3. Food Serving area -Here is where food gets onto the plate right off the pan and finished off with some basil leaves prior to leaving for the dinning table! Aroma of basil leaves....ahhhhhhh yummy!!!!
4. As you've wondered, the fourth major area is the Washing area

A closeup design of our cottage, country style chimney. Keeping design and practicability in check, it would be nice to have more elaborated design chimney but we figured it would be a pain to maintain particularly after some big frying receipt hence we were agreeable on this 

Country cottage style design knobs on kitchen cabinets

Handles and more of those cottage country style design please!!!!

Another view of our Kitchen -Where our Love language is prepared.

View from this perspective, you will be able to see how the kitchen is being divided into our 4 main sections. The space with a plant is the food preparation area -big enough to place one whole chicken, a bowl of spaghetti for serving size of 4, a plate with chopped garlic, bacon streaks, tomato and still leaving some space for plants!

Putting it together

Like puzzle pieces, Life takes on a new dimension when one attempt to slowly piece the pieces together. Just like impatient children, we waited with great anticipation while our Utopia starts forming the shape of our dreams.

*It's never too late to dream dreams*

Here we are.. at the most anticipated moment of our lives. :)

A Dream's Evolution...

***Next update with new photos on Sept 10th, 2011***

Evolution of A Dream
 "Dreams are a communication of body, mind and spirit in a symbolic communicative environmental state of being. Dreams are so compelling, and they often seem so weird and strange..."

With structures now pretty much in place it is time to place bit and pieces of things together. Allow the photos to do the talking -sit back and Enjoy!

Living Area
A place to relax with your Loved Ones. Feel the breeze and birds singing from afar!

-From this... 

...To this!
Creating space segregating dinning and living -with some help from pillars and curves!

 View from Dining
A different colour and different feel :)

Close-up view of two baby Angels

Did not really liked  low entrance opening and now we have higher pillars and entrance!

As a result, we need to find a new home for lovely twin Angels to be just beside the entrance. 
Created beads like design around the perimeters -looks neat!

TV Console

And to the stuffs we brought thus far!

A Brandt for our Oven!

Chimney Hood

Basin Tap

The Sink!

The Kitchen
"A place where all beautiful savoring taste-bud delicacy are made... "

Washing/ Preparation Area 


Hot/ Cooking Area

That's all for this week's structural built out. Come next week, will be 80% completion and expecting the pre-final touches to be done such as chandeliers and all other accessories!

Architecture a Dream...Part II

Painting an Architectural Dream

Bedroom 2 

Shades of Pink...

This will be center piece art that will be up in the ceiling :)
Seems it needs a little cleaning...

Bedroom 3

Shades of Green and Pink...unfortunately, these shades are too dark and have requested  painters to do a lighter shade for both colours.

Lime green and baby pink should be the end product...
Will post pictures of the lighter shades when it is done

That's about all the painting works that are required for this place, the rest of wall work will be done at a much later stage :)

Next will be structural phase where all bit and pieces starts to take shape! That is when we see our Dreams to start evolving from a Thought into Reality...I'm getting excited! :)

***We will have another round of updates with Before and After pictures due at 11.30pm GMT+8 on September 3rd so stick around! :)
