An open-face drawer with a built-in paper towel dispenser makes the towels easy to reach but it is not an obvious part of the kitchen. Design by John McGilvray. See more of this beautiful French country kitchen >>
These chairs are everything. Love the gold painted faux bamboo and that table is the perfect compliment-- glass top to highlight the gorgeous gold base. Definitely a stunner. Upholstered banquettes the dining room always concern me (constant risk of food/wine stains!), especially tufted ones (crumbs everywhere!) but this one is dark, luxurious and super chic.
Sunday morning: I love the idea of a banquette and the use of these church pews is a great take on that idea. These pews also look quite similar to ones that I sat in on many a Sunday morning as a little girl.
