My New Refrigerator Is Bright Red
A few weeks ago I wrote a story for The Kitchn about learning to live with a tiny, tiny freezer. You see, European apartments tend to come with comparatively small refrigerators. People here just stock less and shop more often, so they don't need our monster American refrigerators. But the tiny freezer was something of a shock to my system. But no more! Because not long after that post went up, I became the proud owner of a new refrigerator with ample freezer space. And the best part is that it's bright red!
The new refrigerator is fantastic. There are three drawers and there's even a bottle rack in the fridge, which has come in very handy. And I find I really like the set-up with the freezer on the bottom. The fridge gets so much more use it seems logical to put it up on top, and the freezer drawers make for very easy access. Now all we need is a couple more ice trays and a bottle rack in the freezer for rapidly chilling all the Champagne we're going to be drinking, and everything will be perfect!
Forgive the bareness of the rest of the kitchen. The decorating beam has not yet fallen on that room, but hopefully we'll get some nice accents in there shortly. I mean, it's just not fair to let that awesome red fridge go along in a plain, empty, utterly utilitarian kitchen, right? At least we need a curtain and some decorative pot holders.
I'll get on that. But for now, I'm just going to bask in the cool glow of my bright red fridge.
