Apartment Therapy and The Kitchn Photo Contest, readers have chosen a winner. Bethany Nauert, a contributor and photographer extraordinaire, based in Los Angeles has garnered the most votes with the above image. This photo is a knock out, and when you think about it, the scene represents the ethos of our sites-- It celebrates design, good living and gathering for a meal. It's beautiful.
Congratulations Bethany and cheers to many more great images from all of our team in 2012!
