In the kitch...
I've been immersed in a kitchen design this morning! I've been wrapping up the final details and emailing with the client and contractor. I've mentioned in the past that one of my favorite parts of being a designer is transforming something dated and non-functional into something efficient and gorgeous! Here's a peek at two kitchens I'm loving! Clean, bright and airy spaces with unique details are on my radar.
The stove, graphic floor tiles (I have a client using these on a project), built in cabinetry and clean white walls are what I'm drawn to in this space.
The built in quality and unexpected mix of finishes make this kitchen inviting and unique. The design is by Jessica Helgerson.
Kitchen two is very California cool. I'm due for a trip out West. My personal and favorite style is one that mixes classic details (think elements of chippendale/chinoiserie + vintage + emerald velvet) with modern influences (think brass, clean lined furniture and white paint). It is sort of an East coast meets West coast approach.
I am loving how fresh and bright this space looks. The bar stools, light fixture, marble counter tops and black steel windows are right up my alley...;) Images via My Domaine.
Be sure to hop over to Marcia Maizel-Clarke's jewerly site Dogeared. (I think I need one of these gold dipped necklaces) Marcia collaborated with her friend Maggie Pierson on this killer design.
