SPACES | I Have Wall Envy

SPACESLauren CaronComment

First things first. I'd love to completely redo my kitchen and turn it into my dream kitchen but my bank account has made it clear that such a thing can not happen. So I'm counting my pennies and figuring out how I can change the hardware, add shelves, and some dramatic paper. In the future I'll update the counters and add a dishwasher. Then I'll hopefully solve the issue of the ill fitting refrigerator.

In trolling the internet a few months ago I came across this beautiful kitchen papered with the map of Paris. Just before this discovery, we had bought a large multi sheet print of the map for our wedding. But after seeing this kitchen, I decided that this would be the way to utilize the prints. Much like the apartment in Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless or Á Bout de Souffle, which I loved from the moment I first saw it. Seriously though, how chic is this kitchen? I know I'm not the only one with wall envy. You really can't go wrong with a map of Paris. I'm also loving other executions shown below.

Thanks for reading . . . my best, Lauren.
