It is unusual to have something "lovely" in the kitchen. Kitchens are for cooking, socializing, planning. Work gets done in the kitchen.
But when I placed one open rose in a small glass compote by the sink, the whole room looked prettier. Take a moment (of delight) and look at how each individual petal is unfurled- gorgeous!
The rose is "McCartney Rose," named for Sir Paul McCartney and the vase is a thin glass pedestal dish (that I found for a song!) that is similar to the gorgeous work of William Yeoward.
Sometimes a little bit of lovely can make all the difference.
