Midday Muse: I'm an Island (Fan)

Midday Muse: I'm an Island (Fan)

Growing up, I would always sit on our high stools at the kitchen island and watch my mother cook dinner as I did my homework. It was basically the only way for me to spend time with her alone at night, and it was also how I learned to cook. Sometimes, my sister would practice piano in the room, or spread her books out on the dining table to study. In the mornings, we'd all hop on the stools and eat cereal together as my mom made sandwiches on the other side. We had an open-plan living space (a kitchen and casual dining room combined), and it worked for us; I can't imagine growing up any other way. But, some chefs prefer the kitchen to themselves, far from where their family actually dines, and others simply prefer the privacy of a separate kitchen. Where do you fall?

We are just waiting impatiently to get a house with an island in the kitchen, Currently, we have a fairly big updated galley kitchen that annoys me to no end. The kids are a bit young for homework and such, but it would be great to be able to get things done with an open plan. I am constantly running around trying to find the voices! Would love to have a huge island that guest can come an congregate around while we prepare a fabulous dinner- a girl can dream, right!

I like them too. I eat more sitting at those than I do the kitchen table. It's either the island, the sofa, or my desk when I'm eating or drinking.

I would looove to have an island. I love having people hang out around me while I cook (as long as they don't try to tell me how to do it).

I grew up with an Island as well and I loved being able to help my mother cook on the stool. It makes the kitchen much more versatile I think. I would like to have one once I get to purchasing a new home.
