OCDD design challenge: cookin' with la maison fou

maison21 has received lots of dining rooms, entry halls, living rooms and bedrooms, even a garden conservatory as submissions to our last two design blogger's challenges, but today, we have a first- leslie, from over at la maison fou, has submitted our first kitchen!

when we first read her email, m21 initially thought "she did not just call me a fou? i'll cut the beeyotch! maison21 ain't nobody's fou!", then we wondered if perhaps she was making fun of you too, as in: "i pity the fou that reads maison!", but then we visited her blog, and calmed down. we found that the title merely references "a mad house" ala francais, - that we could relate too- sometimes things get a little crazy around here, too...

leslie had so much fun with the challenge, she actually made 2 posts about it! (read here & here). her entry was so complete (right down to the brand of paper towels), maison21 could find only one omission- he thinks every kitchen should have a dog or a cat patiently waiting for the odd scrap to fall, so we inserted la maison21 fou's delightful little pooch, sir derby digmoor, into the picture (love that name):
