A London area home has a spectacular glass ceiling that lets light flood into the space. Natural light is reflected and absorbed by the white paneled walls, dark stone counters and off white cabinets - a great balance of light and dark. (above)
Happy day after the 4th of July! After celebrating America's Independence for a full day (fireworks and all), I thought I would go international and share a home from across the pond...from England.
The best part of this Victorian home is definitely the kitchen.
A kitchen with a glass ceiling! Who would have ever thought of that? Well obviously someone did. Perhaps the coolest small kitchen I've seen in awhile. I love it. Genius. Bright, light, airy, modern, clean and the windows make this tiny cooking space seem much larger. Looks like it was an addition to this home that is just north west of London.
The garden is quite lovely too. I think I could live in London (no disrespect of course to the good ole U.S. of A. a day after we celebrated our country's Independence). If I did, I would like a house with a kitchen and garden exactly like this. Is anyone taking notes out there???

A very long teak outdoor dining table sits in the paved part of the garden conveniently located close to the kitchen. (above)
No glass ceiling in the living spaces...the main living room (or sitting room as the British might say) has wide plank wood floors, tall windows, built-in bookshelves and a lovely iron fireplace with white mantel. (above)
What do you think?
Hope you have a great day off (if you have the day off)!
P.S. I spared you all of the workplace glass ceiling, titles, jokes or references...i.e. The Glass Ceiling Goes from Work to Home...Hitting the Glass Ceiling at Home?...etc.
