I keep coming back to Majjie's blog.
Marian John is an independent kitchen designer in the UK with a great web site and, of course, a blog.
I like her picture.
She looks trustworthy.
And FUN too!
She's also got a great window on what's coming our way from over there.
And she's written what looks like a superb treatise called Majjie's Kitchen Design Guide, a very ambitious undertaking with a free first chapter for you to peruse.
If you can get past the unusual terminology, it should be well worth paying £50.00.
Just remember not to walk into a cabinet showroom here and ask for a pelmet ;-D
