White Kitchen With Brass Accents and It's Always A Good Idea



I'm in one of my favorite places in the world right now.  PARIS!  To celebrate our wedding anniversary.  30 years!

But first, I flew to Los Angeles to drop off Chief with Alexandra, AKA Mom B.  His flight (one hour) costs more than mine to LAX and he sits under the seat!

He seems to be adjusting just fine...
I'm waiting for my husband to arrive at Paris Charles de Gaulle.  
He has a direct flight from San Francisco.  

My computer says it's 1:00 am (PST), 
but all the fresh croissant smells hit me like a wave
...it's 10:00 am here.  

While standing in line for coffee, I remember a few basics...
like ALWAYS start with "Bonjour" before saying anything.  Or else it's rude.
"Bonjour.  Café creme et pain au chocolat, s'il vous plait."  
Whew!  A little French is popping into my sleep deprived brain.  Delicious fast food.  


Before I left SF, I was at the design center...
look at this kitchen from the Christopher Peacock showroom.




 So classic but fresh.






I'll be back!  I have a lot of design related things...
new and old that I want to visit in Paris.

Thanks for visiting!

  21. Happy Anniversary and have a fabulous time in Paris! I will think of you there shopping and eating delicious french pastries! I do love the satin brass accents, however, I still have brass from when they it was "in style" in the 80's. Of course, mine are all polished brass, maybe I can satin finished them and give them a new look! Something to think about! Hope Chief is loving his time with Mommy #2!
