One of my favorite interior designers is Karin Blake.
Architectural Digest magazine feels the same way,
as they recently named her one of their Top 100 Designers.
Here’s one reason why:
People. This magnificence is the kitchen of her Malibu, CA cottage,
which is listed for sale for $3,795,000!
I just spied this photo yesterday in one of my favorite blogs,
Content In A Cottage.

Meanwhile, let’s talk about
the obvious why I love her kitchen!
Here’s another look-see:
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways!
1. all that fantastic FOLK ART! — 2. plain Jane white cabs
3. industrial stools — 4. butcher block countertops
5. farmhouse table with its red metal box
6. the highly-coveted vintage barber pole
and most of all
(yelled like Oprah)
7. RED WINDOW SASHES!
I found a photo of her kitchen, PRE-red window sashes:
This kitchen still puts the OUT in outstanding,
(+ I really, really want that bulls eye),
but check out the difference the red sashes make:
I think we’re all on board, here,
with how scrumptious RED can be.
All that bright, bright white makes the colors pop,
+ I’m re-thinking my gray walls for the next house.
