decor & design: fashion & food
To launch our Kitchen series, we thought we would start off with a “Red” kitchen to complement our MyFudo™ colors. Photos taken by the talented Michael Higginson, and Irina Danilova. It’s bold, vibrant, and eye-catching. I’d also love to hear some ideas from all you readers out there. What is your dream kitchen? What color schemes would you like to use? What kitchen gadgets would you like to adorn your space? Have you ever heard the saying “everyone gathers around the kitchen?” It’s supposed to be THE place that brings friends and family together. Food, wine, and conversation make the kitchen the liveliest and most fun place in the house. What would you consider the perfect outfit in your kitchen? Would it be casual clothing? Bunny slippers and all? A couture apron with red lipstick? Or simply your birthday suit? My whims of fancy really depend on what the occasion calls for. More importantly, my footwear remains uncomplicated with a pair of flats or barefoot (nothing is a sexy as having no shoes.) However, if I'm spending the whole day cooking or baking in the kitchen, it’s all business. You bet I'll be sporting “Chef Crocs” no matter how unbecoming they may look. Comfort is my priority and I chuck all notions of fashion out the window from the knees down (well, maybe from the ankles down.) I may well just be the first one to raise my hand and admit my feet usually hurt if I'm standing on them for more than a few hours. Kitchen designs all depend on your style, from sleek and modern to rustic wooden cabinets. Some may think a kitchen is incomplete and would simply be naked without a back splash under the cabinets. As for me, a kitchen should look great but also be practical. Out with the 50’s look of laminate cabinets since over time, they start to peel. Today's post we featured the model above, photo taken by Oxilixo, stay turned below for some photography exif data that might help you on your next food-fashion-photo shoot. Fashion in the kitchen, why not? Putting together your classic ensemble look takes a lot of mix and match. Knowing what goes with what is a passion I’d like to share with all of you. Let’s start off with the war paint. Okay, maybe the term war paint can be a tad drastic. Let’s try to accentuate your features and start with pouty, luscious lips. Try CENTRIFUCHSIA opaque lipstick by Lime Crime for $16. To give onlookers a sexy dare to stare, try Estée Lauder 'Pure Color' Eyeshadow Palette in Blue Dahlia for $45 at Saks Fifth Avenue. This palette will give you those sultry smoky eyes without going completely “Jerseylicious.” We adore all the gals on “Jerseylicious” but if you want a more subtle look, this palette is just for you. To cap off your winning look, check out the printed cocktail dress from Lord & Taylor, the SHOSHANNA STRAPLESS FLORAL-PRINT COCKTAIL DRESS, on sale for $196. You might instead want a beautiful Xhilaration® Juniors Spaghetti Strap from Target for $24.99. However way you put your kitchen together, it should have an inviting ambiance where family and friends, both old and new, can share a delicious meal and have a great time enjoying each other’s company.
