the comfort of the kitchen


when we first looked at our house (four long years ago!) i was immediately impressed by the BIG KITCHEN. It always seems like people end up in the kitchen. karl and i entertain quite a bit so we spend some time in it. it's the one thing we have completely redone in our house. (i would recommend timing housing remodels better than this.)

anyway, when my parents were in town for nate's birthday weekend, we were in the kitchen a lot...you know, making dirt cake and cutting fruits and veggies. i had been telling karl i wanted to put this couch in there for a week or so... and then i did. by myself. (thankyouverymuch!) (karl was at work.)

i have to tell you - this couch (that we bought at urban outfitters 2 or so years ago) has gotten more use in it's two weeks of living in the kitchen than the entire time we have owned it. it took me a few days to truly love it. but then it became not only a couch but also a laundry sorting station, hub for plugging things in to charge, and oh so much more....

Love it!! We really do always end up in your kitchen and are only forced into the living room when someone gets tired of standing.. hilarious! Good idea, lady!

Couch in kitchen = fantastic idea. Did this when we lived in the basement suite of friends, and it got used like CRAZY. Plus it was a super tacky (think bright orange) 'conversation' couch from the 70's (maybe 60s?) so it rocked the casbah.

Totallly envious of the couch and the space you have it in. Le sigh. I would nap there.
