The Ideal Kitchen: Indoor / Outdoor Dining
If we could build the perfect room from scratch, what would it look like? What features would it contain? Let’s have ourselves a little daydream…
A while ago (which can ostensibly mean any amount of time, but in this case means three years and three-ish days) I wrote about the imagined glory of swing-out backsplash windows.
Everyone agreed that the feature more than qualified for our ongoing ideal home design list, by which I mean no one disagreed with the assertion, and one person actually commented to say she cosigned the concept.
In hindsight, I vastly undersold the potential that a swing out backsplash window creates. I limited our perspective to inside the kitchen and that was my bad, blog family. Had I just virtually drawn our eyes further, past the kitchen sink and the countertops and the vase of peonies and through the window, I positively could have recruited your excitement. I bet. Because out there, on the other side of said window, this might have been happening:

Please pause to appreciate the fact that the beach house above features marble countertops that extend from inside the kitchen to the outside.
