    Create a bistro-style kitchen

    I’ve just installed a 50’s diner style bar in my new house. I thought I’d include a country styled, bistro version in painted wood, in our Provence decorating style story, pages 62-69 May issue, because I’m so happy with mine! If you have a large kitchen you can place it centrally like an island unit or put it against a wall and even move it around for cleaning. There’s something very nice about the informality of having a chunk of cheese, a bowl of olives, a cup of coffee or a demi-carafe either standing up ‘tabac’ style, or sitting on stools at a tall, bistro table and it reminds me of being in Provence. For more ideas on French decorating and lifestyle see our May issue.
