Our kitchen is fine. In fact, it’s more than fine. It’s spacious as far as tiny apartment kitchens go. There are new cabinets and marble countertops and there’s a gas range and a dishwasher and somebody better stop me from complaining about any of this, because clearly we lucked out in the rental kitchen game. But it’s not Beth’s kitchen. And there aren’t any nearby windows which makes photographing in it tricky. And heaven help me, but the marble is all wrong and the cabinet pulls are at best boring, at worst ugly.
We’ve made the best of it with simple styling. Just the bare essentials. A whiskey bottle with a bar pourer for our soap. Linen hand towels. Simple knives hung in a row. But like most things, it’d be elevated ever so slightly by swapping in a few new treats. And since this series is all about dreaming, here’s my wish list:
1. A woven rug in the miniest size for the cool tile floor. To cushion chilly toes and falling glassware. 2. A pretty golden and cork dispenser for our soap. Because why have plastic when you can have gold? 3. A handcarved wooden spoon. The better to taste-test with. 4. A ceramic utensil holder that matches our dishes and would wrangle our spoons. 5. A simple salt cellar, because our last one went the way of the dodo. 6. A ceramic spoon rest, in just the right shape.
