Open plan: Rachel made her kitchen the way she wanted it … by projecting it on a piece of paper
“I decorated the house before it was ever built,” Ray says in a video tour of her kitchen and pantry. “I drew the house on a piece of paper, so I knew what I wanted to have in my mind.”
The spacious, open-plan design allowed Ray to film her show from the comfort of her kitchen.
In a video clip that gave a tour of the kitchen, she revealed that her two favorite appliances were her six-burner gas stove and her wood-fired pizza oven, which she described as her ‘treasures’.
Comfortable living: The kitchen certainly had a country cottage villa for decor
