kitchen tour

I have a special treat for all you interior design lovers today: a tour of my future sister-in-law Cinzia's kitchen! Three years ago she was still living at home, and now she's married with a brand new house, a baby and another on the way. (She's good at multi-tasking.) Her kitchen is one of her favorite parts of the house because she isn't banished to another room (as most Italian kitchens are closed-off). She loves the light, the openness, the color and how much counter space there is!
 [that futuristic looking thing is an air vent that comes down slowly to ventilate while you're cooking!]

So what do you think? Are Italian kitchens that much different than American ones? 
A big grazie to Cinzia for letting me invade her kitchen today!

  3. That kitchen is the perfect kitchen for food blogging!! In France for some reason, many kitchen have no cabinetry which is kind of weird.

  12. actually, I was going to say that this looks like an American kitchen!  I've never seen an Italian kitchen, but I've seen lots of English and French kitchens (and one Spanish kitchen) and they're all much smaller and darker and less modern.  In my experience, when Europeans say they want an American kitchen, they mean that they want light and space and openness and all the mod cons!  Too funny.

  18. That's a very lovely kitchen.  I may not be comfortable with an open range like that (I tend to splatter as I cook) but at least she's not staring at a wall
