A Most Poetic Kitchen
This kitchen was featured in a February 1961 CQ article, "A Most Poetic Habitation," about a house by the sea in Big Sur country, California. "To live each day communing with nature's grandeur and immensity, eases all paths to beauty as well as truth," the magazine waxed. The kitchen was open to the rest of the house, "in which cooking and dining go on without any attempt to define separate areas. The kitchen has all the modern appliances: freezer, refrigerator, stainless steel sinks, built-in oven, etc. But it is embellished with such quaint old appurtenances as coffee grinder, cuckoo clock, copper pots — all of which still work and are actually used here."
