Football season is here (yes!) and we were rooting for Denver last night since the Ravens beat the 49ers in the Superbowl earlier this year (boo Ravens, sorry fans). Speaking of football, I am smitten with this kitchen featured in Architectural Digest, it’s the LA home of quarterback Tom Brady and model Gisele Bundchen. Follow the link to see the entire home and show your man the weight room, he will totally drool.
