Grisaille Panel, 1260–70. Made in Rouen, Normandy, France. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. The Cloisters Collection, 1969 (69.236.8) | These grisaille panels represent a mid-century transitional stage in royal French ateliers—the conventionalized acanthus buds are a continuation of earlier tastes, while the ivy leaves, delineated with hair-thin veins, reflect the newer, naturalizing tendencies. #Cloisters
Beautiful white and gray kitchen features a distressed gray plank island with geometric side panels below a granite counter which frames an apron sink and gooseneck spray faucet lit by a trio of cone shaped glass pendants across from a stainless steel counter depth refrigerator. The creamy white perimeter cabinets pair with brushed nickel hardware alongside black counters and a subway tile backsplash which highlights an integrated gas cooktop situated below a rivet kitchen hood.
