I am working on several kitchen renovations and designs right now, so I immediately went to one of my favorite sources for inspiration, Pinterest.  If you don’t have your dream kitchen yet,  I bet you probably have an idea of how it will look.

 

Everyone loves a beautiful kitchen, right? After all, it tends to be one of the most lived in rooms in a home.

 

Before working on any kitchen space, it’s important I understand my clients’ style and needs.   Are they cooks or not? Are they a family of two or a family of seven?  Do they like to entertain?  How old are their children and/or grandchildren?   All of these things come into play and make a difference in how a kitchen needs to function.

 

So……having said that, I love nothing more than a really pretty AND functional kitchen.

 

Here are a few that have caught my eye recently:

 

This kitchen is from a few years back, and while kitchens have gone lighter and brighter, I still love it.  Greige is the new black, and I love the planked walls and cabinetry. I also love the wood detail in the ceiling and the softness of the benches are a beautiful addition to the room.

The simplicity of this kitchen is beautiful and how gorgeous is the marble island? I also love the pops of black against the stone.

This kitchen is light and bright, yet there are so many layers and textures in this space.

Ruard Veltman is one of my favorites when it comes to architecture. He is incredibly creative and talented, and his work in inspirational. He puts great attention into details, and it’s obvious in his designs.

Happy Wednesday!

 

I came across this quote from Billy Baldwin and I love it.

I have always been a believer in using classic materials and finishes throughout a home.  Mother Nature knows best, as a room filled with classic materials is always up to date.

The finishes you choose for your next project can make or break certain design elements. Floor and wall coverings can greatly influence the style of a room.

 

Nothing is prettier to me than an old piece of marble. Marble is wonderfully rich and can turn any room into a dramatic showcase. The more it is used, the prettier it becomes.

Wood is also a classic material that I love. I have been embracing it in an even bigger way this year with it appearing in all forms of interior objects from furniture to lighting to flooring.
