How do you build a cupcake? Well, you start with a colorful liner, then add some eggs, sugar, and flour. Then choose a swirled top and some sprinkles! That's the story, anyway, with this bright, clever poster created by two artists for a friend.
We just saw the best piece of kitchen art we've seen in a long time: A poster that lovingly details every single kitchen gadget, labeled and placed in its proper context of culinary tools. It's even printed in real copper ink — so it gleams like Julia Child's pots.
A cup of black beans. Six steamed dumplings. Three potatoes. Stefen Chow's photo series The Poverty Line captures what someone living on 3.28 yuan (about 49 cents) could buy in China, putting into pictures the stark statistics of those living in poverty. The results are not always what you'd expect.
Q: In an attempt to declutter the kitchen I have removed the various photos and notes that accumulate on the refrigerator over time. Our fridge is black and the solid dark surface seems a little much, but I don't want to go back to the clutter.
Does anyone know of a company that sells large decorative magnets? Not necessarily something that will cover the entire surface — I'm thinking some sort of large swirl or flower design? A refrigerator accessory, if you will. I've searched online but haven't found what I'm looking for.
From aprons to artwork, we've rounded up these fun kitchen accessories that help the vegan cook express themselves in their kitchen decor. The decal shown in the first image above is a fantastic way to incorporate artwork into the kitchen. See the rest of our picks after the jump:
Soup Week is almost over, but we're going to leave you with a little memento: Seven prints, each with their own creative interpretation of a recipe for soup. From spicy Chinese soup to potage aux carottes, here are some recipes to hang (perhaps right above your stove?) and to inspire.
Ever since Leela showed us her artful chopstick collection, with chopsticks from her travels displayed in a kitchen art installation, I have been really struck by the idea of showing off chopsticks in the kitchen! Here's another way to do it: A fabulous little chopstick holder from Vienna-based designers Less&More.
Mirrors and artwork in the kitchen — especially in splash-prone areas like over the stove and sink — have inspired some heated comments in the past! But I have no backsplash (or vent hood, for that matter) above my stove, and this past fall I made the decision to hang a framed piece of art there. I don't regret it one bit; in fact, I'm loving it. Here's why!

After we featured these English and French buchery posters last summer, Alyson of Drywell Art emailed to tell us about her daily project: Creating a different meat butchery diagram every single day of the year. But traditional pork, beef, and lamb diagrams couldn't keep her interested all year long; she had to get a little quirky. Penguin, anyone? How about narwhal, artichoke anatomy, latte, day in the life of an artist, or Fail Whale butchery? Alyson's taken a Meat Section approach to them all.
