Kitchen inspiration... via a Pixar film...

Have you seen Ratatouille? If you haven't, you MUST. It's so good. And not just good for an animated film. Good period.

I absolutely loved the kitchen at the restaurant, and I just found a quicktime tour of it-- you can pan through-- it's so cool.

Check out that gorgeous black and brass La Cornue range! We want to borrow elements of this kitchen for the restaurant kitchen at Mattei's, which will be a display kitchen with a chef's table in an inglenook. We love how it's not all matchy-matchy like a modern American kitchen-- so many textures, and notice all the different finishes? There's brass, stainless, copper... and it feels totally authentically French.

It also makes me want to know more about set design for animated movies. How do they do it? Do they have a set designer do all the specifications and everything as though it's real, and then just have the animators create it digitally? Sooo beyond me. There's also a tour of Skinner's office, and it just makes me think, "Who chose that rug on the floor? And how/why?" So cool.
