I have a new kitchen!!! My little Manhattan kitchen was miraculously transformed last month by the brilliant work of my friends Dan and John. I’m totally over the moon.
I’d wanted to make improvements for years, having struggled with motivation to cook and create for this blog when I felt claustrophobic in my own kitchen, but I knew I couldn’t delay this project any longer after barely surviving the busiest CocoaRoar truffle season a year ago. Frustrated to tears by the lack of functional counter/storage space, I honestly considered giving up my truffle business. Either I had to move to an apartment with a better kitchen, or I had to make serious changes to my existing space before the next December truffle season came around.
Enter Dan and John. As they say on their website, “We believe space matters—and that a well-designed environment enhances well-being and promotes the enjoyment of daily life.”
Any home improvements I’d made in the past were always very DIY. I’d never experienced having a fully realized vision for a room and then executing it, but sometimes you need to turn to the pros. I’d seen other beautiful design projects that Dan and John had done in the past, where they excelled at finding clever functional solutions that also looked incredibly cool. I couldn’t have imagined how far they’d exceed my expectations for my kitchen project!
