I've been driving Steve a bit crazy lately. You see, he's a macro kind of guy and I'm a micro gal. He's busy focusing on the layout of Patina Farm, and I'm worrying about the finishes in the kitchen. I believe this is a very common problem. It's just the difference between the male and female mind. Fortunately I have Velvet and Linen, where I can share my obsession with you and leave Steve alone for a while.
I'm loving the combination of metals these days. I found this image in my new Beta Plus Contemporary Kitchens book. It's a great example of the beauty that can be acheived by combining brass, stainless steel, and copper.
This French kitchen also combines three types of metal.
The La Cornue range is the ultimate in metal combining perfection.
The La Cornue range looks great in any style kitchen.
We are leaning towards the Lacanche range. If you have one of these beauties, I'd love to know your experience. Are they as wonderful to use as they look?
The color palette of this kitchen is chalky perfection. It's one of the images that convinced me to select the Lacanche.
We plan to use this Barber Wilsons bridge faucet in unlacquered brass.
I'd love your opinion. How do you feel about mixing metals? What's your favorite range? Any other suggestions?
Before I finish this post I want to thank Redbook Magazine for featuring our bathroom as their "Dream Room".
