I’m assuming that we all watched last night’s Fixer Upper episode on HGTV.
G.O. tried to watch but couldn’t stand all the Chip hi-jinks,
so he excused himself + took refuge in another room.
But that’s not what I wish to type about.
2 islands, no waiting.
It think it’s genius!
Here’s kind a blueprint-style sketch of the before + after:
Seems to me that I’ve seen this done before.
I tried to find Pinterest images of 2 islands in 1 kitchen, but came up empty.
Anyway, here’s a closer look-see:
The twin islands will work wonders
for the traffic flow between the kitchen + living + dining spaces,
more so if there was one very long island
Like Joanna did in the French country kitchen, here:
Is it just me, or does anybody else think “too many footsteps!”
from the stove or the sink, all the way around the island, to the refrigerator?
Seriously, I noticed it right away, + I felt sad!
Perhaps the homeowners + Joanna were sad, too.
Perhaps Joanna then opted to break up the kitchen space in last night’s house
with 2 islands instead of 1 airport runway.
She said that the idea for twin islands was the single man homeowner’s!
Well, kudos to him, then!
Meanwhile — here’s a look at his living space:
Lovely, lovely, lovely.
I have always wanted a room with 2 couches facing each other
+ a pair of baseball glove leather chairs.
Also — did you notice the gray woodwork with the white walls?
Next house, for sure.
