The lavishness of gold, silver, and all things that shimmer are easily associated with the Holidays. It should come as no surprise then why Christmas usually takes on a theme that is often synonymous to extravagance, abundance, and opulence. Yet, over the years, our visual idea and physical representation of this festive season has somewhat transformed—for one, we are no longer confined to the red and green scheme and we see a lot of vibrant but rather unexpected hues taking center stage. However, despite the presence of the more modern interpretations of Christmas, the spirit of benevolence remains.
The same can be said for the kitchen. From its humble beginnings where it was ordinarily secluded from the rest of the home, this hardworking space now becomes the center. Contemporary individuals and families have begun to discover the modern kitchen as a place where heightened mental concentration is possible, and where deep positive emotions can be conjured. And yes, it is where the most memorable moments can be shared. Yet, the essence of this room still resonates to this day—to provide warmth, care, and nourishment. With new design philosophies and ideologies, it is now quite exciting to re-imagine the kitchen and the possibilities are endless.
