AGA Ranges

After yesterday's post about the kitchen designed around an aubergine stove that the homeowner found at a clearance sale, I wondered if I would spend that amount of money on an appliance that I really wanted, but wasn't sure of the color (even at a discount, these stoves are still very pricey).  Of course, it helps to have a friend/interior designer standing by to steer you in the right direction in co-ordinating the rest of the kitchen design, but could I live with a color that was not my first choice.  I really am not sure I could.  Could you?  

I've added some colors below to show you what's available in AGAs.......

They are certainly beautiful and I like the idea of so many ovens, no knobs and heating the kitchen.
The following information is from an article in the Wall Street Journal:
The cast-iron, British-made AGA is different from most ranges in that it isn't just for cooking, but for keeping the kitchen warm. The original AGA, which dates back to 1922, was designed to stay on all the time. Nowadays, an AGA user can program the stove to turn on at certain times. In the U.K., a smartphone app allows users to set their AGAs remotely and text them commands, such as "roasting oven on," says company spokesperson Laura James. The Five-Oven AGA Total Control has separate ovens for roasting, baking, simmering, slow-cooking and warming. It comes in 12 colors, such as "duck egg blue," "heather" and "aubergine" (shown here).
Price: $20,299 (Five-Oven AGA Total Control)" = $29,000 CAD

Crazy for Coral!

I am loving all the coral I am seeing these days!  Whether it's a whole collection gathered over a lifetime, or a touch of it here and there, it's a wonderful addition to any room!

And the colors!  Red, white, blue and pink are just a few that I have seen and it's charming in all forms - textiles, lights, mirrors, art - the sky is the limit!


Oscar de la Renta's home

Isn't this blue collection gorgeous?

Stunning!  Diamond Baratta at its best!

Mary and James Carville's foyer in AD
Love the light sconces!

This Palm Beach living room is exquisite!

This Italian villa has 25,000 pieces of hand made coral installed in its walls and ceiling!

This Jamaican villa by Charles Faudree is stunning - see
more in Veranda magazine!

Beautiful vignette with a touch of coral!

Isn't this a stunning bath for Mrs. Galen Weston's Florida home -
the red and pink is delicious!
