I hate most of these kitchens. Even on projects I otherwise love, I'm satisfied with about 10% of them. The owners of these expensive houses all have money and naturally want lots of amenities in theirs, which complicates the space planning further and makes it near impossible to pull off coherently. The kitchens I usually do like the most are very rudimentary, practical shortfalls aside. It makes you wonder how Palladio would have dealt with a dishwater and a convection...
Because it's not made of wallpaper, you stupid fucking moron.

Yikes. Awful detailing on a house with really good spaces. I'd excuse it on grounds of the difficulty of trying to build something in Iran, but most of the problems are within their control.
