Bold as brass: the coolest kitchen I've seen in ages...

I was struck by a momentary pang of kitchen envy when I read yesterday's Evening Standard Homes & Property section. I'm heavily into brass at the moment. I 'd have big brass Modernist sculptures dotted all over the house, were it not for the unpleasant matter of the bill. I prefer its golden colour to actual gold, which is a bit too orange for me. Interestingly, the owners opted for brass as they're fed up with the ubiquity of stainless steel, and I have to agree with that. It's not a material that fires me up at the moment. But this kitchen, part of a whole-house renovation by architect/owner Dominic McKenzie, looks like some precious sculptural box, as well as being somewhere to make your tea and toast.
