I Love Clean, Modern Kitchens, But…

Does this one at 4 Wee Burn Lane, near Darien’s Wee Burn Country Club, go too far? Seems a bit stark, a bit…cold.

  1. What I was trying to say is that the kitchen seems over-sized… a bit institutional. if it was 30% smaller, it would look better…at least better proportioned.

  2. This kitchen is obviously never used. Why on earth are there no upper cabinets near the sink? Where do you put your drinking glasses and dishes? I assume you have to walk about 50 feet or so to find a cabinet for them. Plus, if you are fairly tall, the last thing you want to do is constantly bend over to store everyday dishes in some lower cabinet or drawer.

  3. Eh……..I kind of like it but I don’t think the photos (?) of the fork and spoon help. I would lose those and either have vertical (more interesting) paintings or a couple of open shelves to break up the starkness.

  4. In the same vein, what do you think of the interiors of 19 Lower Cross Road – too specific or just right? I happen to absolutely LOVE them

    • Anon:
      I happen to like the interiors of 19 Lower Cross Road, as well, although again, there’re a couple of rooms where I think the decorator (or somebody) has gone too far in his quest for, shall we say, “stark simplicity”. If your living room begins to look like the interior of a futuristic space ship, you’ve gone too far.
      P.S. I’m reacting to pictures, so perhaps I’ll re-visit this subject after the broker open house.

  5. Relative to the antiseptic sterility of this kitchen, as Einstein said, “If a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind, what is the significance of a clean desk?

  6. What are you doing snooping around in Darien? You all look down your nose at Darien, so you might just as well stay out.

    • Just:
      Hush! Darien offers, to my jaded Greenwich eye, relative bargains, particularly the waterfront. Darien brokers frequently list simultaneously on the Darien and Greenwich MLS, and the listings appear on our Thursday open house list. When I see something interesting, I go look.
