Home Kitchen

Each year at the San Diego Architectural Foundation’s Orchids and Onions Celebration, Mike at Hold It Contemporary Home takes the year’s selected backdrop like an outdoor downtown courtyard, or the SDMA’s sculpture garden under its stunning midcentury arches and Malcolm Leland gates, and creates elegant, inviting arrangements of modern furniture from his studio’s collection. So, things could only get better, by going to the source. Home Kitchen Culture was delighted to provide highly crafted hors d’oeuvres and desserts for Mike’s launch of a gorgeous line of designer furniture: Natuzzi Italia. Special thanks to the inimitable Snake Oil Cocktail Company for the luscious cocktails and for charming everyone, including me!

Special thanks to the incredible Barbara Smith for snapping up the whole thing into pictures.
