the older i get, the more i seem to be drawn to warm, rustic, well-worn, and cozier kitchens for my own home...i still love and appreciate clean and modern, but something about well-worn kitchens make it feel more like home and family...the tendency is to think of rustic kitchens to be kitchy, cluttered, and to farm-like...but there are definite ways to have a cozy/rustic space, while still being completely chic and sophisticated...the kitchen above, designed by axel vervoordt, is beyond stunning...note the mix of metals, marble counter, open shelving, rustic table, and large-scale antique armoire -with a splash of color on the inside...the lighter woods keep the space bright..

our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. it is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us...we are all meant to shine...and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people the permission to do the same. as we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
