Speaking of cooking ... isn't this the most charming summery kitchen? Bright, colorful, airy, with just enough space to assemble easy breakfasts (on hot days I like a bowl of cut peaches, bananas and plump blueberries dolloped with Greek Kefir goat yogurt), picnic lunches and crisp salads plus platters of thickly sliced Cherokee Purple heirloom tomatoes to accompany an evening barbecue.
