Say hello to the sweet space of Kasey and Matthew from Turntable Kitchen!
Unintentionally, one wall in our house has become what we call ‘the wine wall.’ It’s where we store our everyday drinking bottles, which are suspended in a wooden wine rack. It’s also home to a photo I took on our honeymoon in Argentina (of a wine cellar in Mendoza), as well as a wine-themed National poster (one of Matt’s favorite bands). The nearby bookshelf houses many of my favorite cookbooks, so they’re within reach – along with my aprons – when I’m in the kitchen.
We just recently got a new kitchen table, and it’s already a favorite. It’s made from reclaimed wood from the nearby Marin Tunnel, and it’s where we eat all of our meals, drink afternoon coffee, and where I thumb through cookbooks.
We do most of our work from our couch area, so we wanted it to feel really cozy. We have a selection of photos and paintings behind the couch, which we’ve collected over the course of our travels, and air plants that hang from little ceramic sculptural vases. Nearby, we also have our record player and sizeable record collection.
The wooden bookcase that holds our record player and record collection was one of the first pieces of furniture we ever bought together. We thought we’d never run out of space on it, but, already, our records have started to spill over into a nearby ‘overflow’ bin. Whenever we have parties and get-togethers with friends, this is an area where people often like to congregate, browse and chat music. It’s my husband’s happy place.
This was our first ‘investment’ piece and it’s the most centrally-located place in our apartment. If you’re sitting in the leather chair, you’re right next to the record collection, the couch, and the dining room table. It’s also a great place to curl up and watch a movie.
