August kitchen.jpg

Whew,  we just made it.  Can you believe it's almost last day of August and Labor day is right around the corner. 

Enjoy our August kitchen of the month that pays homage to the Arts and Crafts Movement. 

     The Arts and Crafts movement emerged from the attempt to reform design and decoration in mid 19th century Britain. It quickly spread across the oceans to America and Japan.  It was a reaction against a perceived decline in standards that the reformers associated with machinery and factory production. The movement was a rebellion against current design which was considered to be excessively ornate, artificial and ignorant of the qualities of the materials used. The intent of the movement was a revival of traditional handicrafts and return to simper, better designed objects and interiors.

Today the Arts and Crafts is still a popular style.  Quality materials and distinctive lines remain the defining factor.
