Now that my husband has been in Chennai for a week, we got more done in the past week than we accomplished since last October! Just sharing the vision for the kitchen:
Elements shown here are mostly from Sur La Table and Target. Must have: a Bialetti espresso maker you can set on a burner — I’m addicted to caffeine (no joke, truly) and need a strong injection daily. The cabinet image here captures the feel, the wood stain, the granite color.
The appliances are from a store in the T Nagar neighborhood of Chennai, and they may very likely roll appliances down the sidewalk for delivery! That $0 delivery cost will balance out cost of shipping the copper farmhouse sink from the U.S. to India.
I already have a ceramic rooster sitting with our pile of things to take during the next trip to Chennai.
