RESINK YOUR KITCHEN

I’ve been out of commission for several weeks now and that’s why the Feng Shui By Fishgirl blog posts have been sporadic at best. My apologies to you loyal readers. First it was packing for the annual migration north for the summer months. Then it was unpacking and dealing with a studio / gallery that had some damage over the winter. Next it was traveling for a quick family reunion. Back home, I immediately caught a bad virus that laid waste to my face and is now finally healing. Avoid stress, the doctor said. So in order to calm down I’m ready to lose myself in the blogosphere again! Here are some very cool kitchen sinks that could add pizazz and function to your decor. That’s always good for your feng shui. The one above is from one of my favorite blogs VosgeParis.

Kohler island kitchen sink. Looks good but does it work well?

I like the *idea* and beauty of the Kohler island kitchen sink shown here but I am unconvinced that it’s as functional as a kitchen sink needs to be. It seems like a bathroom item to me. What do you think? The curvey yin yang balance of this Elkay sink feels like good feng shui to me but may be impractical for some spaces.

KITCHEN: Kitsch or Modern Art?

If I were in NYC this week I’d be headed over to MOMA to see The Frankfurt Kitchen designed in 1926, part of the larger show “Counter Space:Design and the Modern Kitchen”. Read more about it at the NPR blog. The exhibit features films and the politics behind keeping ‘the little woman’ in the kitchen. As I study the picture of The Frankfurt Kitchen above, I’m struck by the clean modern lines that designer Margarete Schuette-Lihotzky came up with. The open shelving is a concept I’m very in favor of. Note the chair and “desk” area…in those days it was for working with kitchen tools like meat grinders instead of a home office set up for your computer. This one would make me uncomfortable, though, because sitting there your back is to the long “poison arrow” of the galley. Solution? A mirrored wall in front of the chair so you can see what’s behind you. Might even be able to use highly polished stainless steel. What do you think? Is MOMA getting kitschy or does this kitchen exhibit qualify as modern art?
