My Favorite Room with David Bromstad

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ROOM IN YOUR HOME? My absolute favorite room in my house would have to be my kitchen/living area! It’s the best place in the house for people to come together, eat, and socialize. The kitchen is open to my living area so the room is one open, large space, which makes it cozy and inviting.

WHY DO YOU LOVE IT?

Kitchens are such an important room to me because it’s where people always gather. I have been to many parties, and no matter how small or uninviting the kitchen is, people always congregate in that area. My kitchen is large and I have a seating area off to the side, which I always use. I enjoy entertaining and my kitchen is definitely a shared space for the whole family! When people come over, they gravitate towards the kitchen and hang out at our island, talking, drinking and having fun! Dinner parties are a great way to bring everyone together and my kitchen is a perfect gathering space.

ARE THERE UNIQUE PIECES OR OTHER DETAILS THAT MAKE THIS SPACE SPECIAL?

I have two silver chesterfield chairs in my kitchen, by my window. They are super comfy and I always sit there with my cup of coffee, with my legs draped over the side. I also can view my TV from this area, which is great. Behind the chairs and in front of the window, I have my large collection of Viking glass vases in all shapes and colors. They are simply gorgeous and set the tone for the space.

HAVE YOU RENOVATED THIS ROOM TO TURN IT INTO YOUR IDEAL SPACE?

The only renovation done to the kitchen/living area was cosmetic. I had white glass walls installed on my existing walls, which really adds a nice touch to the overall space. Other than paint and furniture, my kitchen/living area was completely live-in ready when I bought my home.

WHAT ACTIVITIES DO YOU DO IN THIS ROOM?

I love spending time with my partner, the Bromstad team, and our friends in my kitchen! It’s a great place to catch up on the day, hang out while cooking, and enjoy time with the dogs. At times it becomes my office and even my painting gallery when I don’t go to my studio. It’s truly universal!

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE STYLE IN THIS ROOM?

I would definitely say it’s an eclectic space with whimsical touches.

DOES YOUR ROOM HAVE A VIEW?

I have large windows on the entire east side of the home which overlooks a courtyard. Not bad at all!
