SF Cribs: The places behind the clothes - Page 100

post #1486 of 1897
The kitchen is certainly interesting, you could go with white. If you don't like the wood and have the budget, replace with glass front cabinets. They help in a small kitchen. It may be of the moment but with something that narrow it could help. The counters are nice. Certainly carrara marble would help brighten the place up and is quite classic (despite its ubiquity.) I could live with what is there, even if I didn't think it's ideal. Really not a bad place at all, you live in a lovely building.

yeh, maybe its a building code thing as Australia is alot more prescriptive than the US for example.

we have them in every bathroom and every toilet/water closet

it makes cleaning easy.

What are those two machines in the background, and why are the eggs out in the open? What's the oil drum with scale on the far left?

What do you do? Why do you live in China?

Most eggs can be safely stored without refrigeration. In the US, eggs undergo a chemical wash which removes their natural protective properties, which requires that they be refrigerated.

Disused fuel pumps, petrol and diesel. There was nowhere else to store them. I was living at a village petrol station at the time, staying with friends.

Because I like the place, and there was no good jobs in the UK. Been here over 2 years now, no plans to go back to UK any time soon.

They're taking a couple of very period-correct lamps with them, which is of course a pity, but quite understandable. The kitchen will be upgraded somewhat, I'm considering having the cabinet doors lacquered white,
Congrats LS! For your town that change of adress is a nice upgrade ... Of course the penthouse might have been interesting ... White for the doors would lighten the kithen. Be carefull about steel plate for the backsplash, finger stains al the time ...

Good luck.
