Some lucky Londoner gets up every morning to make coffee in this minimal, clean design kitchen. Backed by white-painted bricks in front of a farmhouse sink and its striking faux-oldtimey hardware, those lucky Londoners are cooking eggs and who knows what else on a stunning AGA stove, prepping their food on marble counters, fishing into repurposed wooden-fronted drawers and standing on an understated floor of wooden slats in a herringbone design.
And I am standing there with them. Let no beautiful kitchen escape my dreamy place in it.

Pushing a cart through a flooded street in south-central Thailand, a woman stays open for business despite the disaster affecting more than 2 million people in her region.
