KITCHEN WEEK: EATING IN A MODERN KTICHEN - WHY A RED LEATHER BANQUET WORKS!

A red leather corner booth in a kitchen? This bright kitchen bench seating works...right? Very modern but also has 50's diner feel to it too. Hmmm...I like this!

  1. I love this... only marine grade vinyl might be more in keeping with my budget (and my destructive dog and children!)

  2. Love the second photo - it's refreshing to see this beautiful blue splash of color in a kitchen, rather than typical neutral tones.

  4. I'm loving the the white screen dividing the living room from the kitchen in that first photo...such a great blend of 50's and 2009.

  5. Love the whole look, and I am in total agreement with the blue backsplash -- really cheerful and yet serene at the same time. Regarding the red leather banquet, what happens when you get grease (salad dressing, olive oil, a slice of bacon!) on it?... is there a good remedy for that?

  7. Fantastic 3-tiered light fixture in the background. The sky blue back-splash is wonderful.
