Ideal kitchen: Trifles and mood

December 9th, 2007

In kitchen’s interior of (as well as at any other premise) there are no unnecessary trifles, even if it is a question of absolutely small subjects: saltcellars, glasses for toothpicks or napkins’ holders. That all these small subjects help to create cosines, instead of splitting up space of kitchen, it is completely not obligatory to select them so that they were identical on color, but well to keep the harmony of the style.
For example, if there are inserted tiles with rural motives on the kitchen tile, it is possible to put whickered basket for bread or a painted saltcellar on a table. Accordingly, wrought luster will set other tone: on such kitchen trays with wrought handles or a suitable vase for fruits will look harmoniously.
It is not necessary to forget and about more appreciable interior subjects, such as hinged shelves for utensils (it is possible to choose the models decorated carved or wrought elements) and a curtain. In general window decoration plays an important role in design of any premise, and on the kitchen it becomes one of few ways to give to a room the necessary atmosphere. Air lacy curtains or practical jalousie with corresponding figure, a shelf for the decorative utensils, hiding an eaves, or set glass shelves on all window – the designer has a huge quantity of beautiful and cozy decisions.
No matter what style has been created, the ideal kitchen will turn out at preservation of balance of beauty and functionality. Huge quantity of pleasant, but fine bagatelles, which it is necessary to wipe not one hour, or a shelf with fragile souvenirs in inconvenient place, are capable to bring to nothing any design idea. However, really successful choice of interior elements differs from unsuccessful one by the fact that does not create any discomfort and gives only pleasure.テつ

Ideal kitchen: romantic teapot

December 8th, 2007

However, if it is necessary to study offers in the market of home appliances, it is possible to come to conclusion, that opposition of devices of kitchen style is not so important in some cases. Some manufacturers can offer not simply functional assistants on a facilities, but really designed bagatelles.
For example, the teapot twisted with rattan rope, or a toaster with a flower pattern on the case in it, which are the elements of design and are perfectly entered in country style of kitchen. If modeling number of the manufacturer, chosen by the mistress, is not so wide, it is possible to get models of not so white color, but of any other color: egg-yellow, terracotta, grassy テ「竄ャツヲ
Purchase of operating antiquarian devices is one more variant. Certainly, the electric kettle is very convenient and it is much comfortable to make coffee in coffee maker. But any style demands victims and use of such surprising “museum” subjects frequently not a victim, but ever lasting pleasure.
It is possible to address to the artist or to paint household appliances. Then there is a chance to create something exclusive, as much as possible suitable to design of kitchen. Certainly, dishwasher with the figure, repeating patterns on a tile, or the picturesque microwave, painted under national emblems, may become a highlight of any kitchen. The only thing is that it is necessary to consider that water resistance and thermo stability of paints were obtained. And they also should be safe in use: help to the mistress in cooking all the same remains the basic purpose of techniques and any other factors are desirable.

Ideal kitchen

December 7th, 2007

Combine incongruous
The majority of us would like to combine at the kitchen two, at first sight, opposite “directions” – high technologies and something more sincere, for example a retro or country. Certainly, someone prefers kitchen in hi-tech style and in this case plastic and the surfaces of kitchen furniture, trimmed under metal, are ideally combined.
Creation of gentle, in something “rural”, but modern kitchen requires special and frequently individual decisions. If to study the majority of design projects of such type and to find in common, it is necessary to appeal to built in techniques. When romantic “face” of kitchen is required, the idea of hiding all technical features seems very successful and easy.
Usually necessary atmosphere is created due to table and chairs (or, as a variant, benches and an angular sofa). The furniture with whickered elements, vintage inserts on a table-top is used. Thus, the kitchen is being divided into two zones: a place for cooking and a dining room – owing to use of practically opposite styles on the emotional saturation. At the same time both zones should be in harmony: a little bit romanticism “gets” on working territory, and on the contrary.

English style

December 2nd, 2007

We do not recommend you to choose this style if you:
Do not like sated on color interiors, with active motley textiles;
Prefer bright and air interiors; you consider as excess decorative friezes, socles and so forth. But if the set forth above reasons are not important for you, we shall consider components of the given style.
It is quite eclectic style as it incorporates influence of two epochs: Georgian (1714 – 1837) and Victorian styles (1837 – 1901). In days of kings of Georges English style was influenced by Greece and Ancient Rome. This style is characterized as majestic, constrained, proportional and symmetric. Walls are painted in one color. On a smooth background of walls borders, a plinth, the panels were actively used. The choice of color quite often depended on the party of light, where windows of the room were located. If on the north – warm shades, for example, pink, citreous colors, prevailed. If on the south – cold, such as azure, green colors, were used. In times of Queen Victoria – the time of technical knowledge, growth of well-being of people – various styles from all countries of the world and different epoch were used. Interiors of that time were full of elements borrowed from cultures of India, Japan, China, Mauritania, Ancient Egypt, and also such styles as rococo, the Luis XIV, Jacob I and so forth. During these period warm shades of terracotta dominated. It was fashionable to use three colors, which borders were read on three levels of wooden furnish, for painting of walls. Quite often the lowest part of the wall, simulating a socle, was not painted, but was pasted over with relief wall-papers.
