photo from Elle Decor, September 2009

If you don't have a subscription to Elle Decor you are missing out.  It is my favorite.  Last week was so busy the September issue almost dry rotted as it sat on the front table begging me to stop and look every time I passed by.  Over the weekend I finally dug in… and I spent a good hour soaking it all in.  The unlacquered brass pulls and faucets… so delightful there are not words to describe them.  

This particular article is on Mark Badgley and James Mischka's horse farm in Kentucky… ahhh my beautiful home state*.  The photography is by Roger Davies.  The horse farm is amazing.  The kitchen above is one I could move right into and not change a single thing… that is rare.

The blurb on the photo says this:

The kitchen is sheathed in subway tile from Urban Archaeology; the pendant lamps over the sink are by Rejuvenation, the range is La Cornue with a hood by Broan, and the sinks from Rohl have fittings by Newport Brass.  A selection of copper and stainless-steel pans and some of Mischka's many cookbooks.

I wish these guys would have me over for dinner.

Some of those sources listed are my favorites – here are some links:
