Italian kitchen envy

I spotted this beautiful kitchen in MILK magazine and I really love it.

I can’t work out if the massive black block hides some cupboards (can’t see the hob either) but it looks beautiful and striking and if I had the right space in mine, I would have loved the beautiful wall light by Jean Prouve, which you can see on the wall.
If you are aiming for a similar look on a budget, the pipe lamp and this New-York black & copper light are great alternatives.

J’ai trouvé cette cuisine magnifique dans MILK magazine bet je l’adore. Je n’arrive pas à voir si le gros block noir cache des placards (je ne vois pas ou est la gazinière également) mais c’est vraiment très beau et du plus bel effet.
Si j’avais l’espace, j’aurais ajouté cette magnifique lampe de Jean Prouvé à ma liste pour le Père Noel (le mien est très branché design) mais si vous souhaitez obtenir un look similaire à moindre frais, la lampe pipe lamp et cette lampe New-York noir & laiton sont de très chouettes options.

  3. haha lets not talk about weight please, I am off to Gran Canaria for 5 weeks where I hope to get in shape, with this weather the last thing I want to do is go for a long walk in the park or even do my dear pilates classes, instead i recover from colds and stay cosy at home, what a kitchen!! I just renovated the bathroom and the kitchen will have to wait fro another 10 years…unless the crisis end in 2013…
