Heart(h) n Home : Kamini's Eclectic Kitchen

Kaminia well known name in the design and travel blogger circles, is a major source of inspiration for me. She is a wonderful artist, great DIYer, and a beautiful human being. :-). I spoke about her entryway on the Design Enthusiast and wanted to share a kitchen tour on the food blog :) (dint want my food blogging friends to miss out on a wonderful home tour ..:-)

Kamini was gracious to take us on tour...so over to K :)

I wanted the Kitchen to be modern in terms of conveniences, but traditional in the things I use. The flooring is simple ceramic tile.





Modular kitchens though very functional are very clinical and boring. I added some of my favorite pottery dishes on top to bring in some color.


I have my mortar and pestle collection, my brass cookware collection, my ceramic spice jar collection and my measuring cup/spoon collection all side by side.

The backsplash is a very subdued gray and white but I added 2 handmade tiles from Seattle into it to remind me of the city I spent 23 years in.


The kitchen has everything we had in our US kitchen in terms of conveniences, but the traditional brass and copper ware I have, along with my pottery collection and the red ceramic tile flooring, bring in a touch of warmth to an otherwise clinic modular kitchen.




The red wooden shelf to hold some more dishes is another weekend DIY project.



 The red painted recipe book stand is actually an old Laccadivian coconut scraper.

I love to cook and I love my kitchen although I still complain there isn’t enough counter space!!!! :-)

  3. Have always been a fan of Kamini's design aesthetics. I love all the personal touches in her Kitchen- the stained glass doors, the antique brass pathrams. K- I had to look up what Laccadavian was! :)
