IN THE DETAILS :: UNIQUE WAYS TO HANG ART

in the details unique ways to hang art raji radhakrishnan

This fall I’ve vowed to tackle the biggest part of my loft to go untouched since moving in … the art wall. While I’ve pinned many a gallery wall in my day, I managed to uncover a few more clever ways of hanging art that hadn’t really occurred to me before, which may influence the […]

    I like hanging it off center (in the corner of the room) and maybe running into another wall and I also like not hanging it at all — laying it against a wall can look modern and fresh too! Just my two cents.

    Having “just moved into a MUCH smaller space” and NOT wanting to “let go” of my paintings..I placed them in vignettes on top of my kitchen cupboards (at least tall ceilings here.) I know…I’ll think about dusting them….tomorrow… franki

IN THE DETAILS :: WHITE KITCHEN + WOOD ISLAND

lauren leiss white and wood kitchen

If you had asked me 15 years ago if I would ever do lighter woods in my home, my response probably would have been a vehement “no”. Growing up with a plethora of bad yellow oak flooring all over our home, I hated the way we had to design around it (we, meaning my parents of […]

    I love this. I think it would be particularly beautiful in an open shore house kitchen. I love the contrast between the darker wood floors with the reclaimed wood (almost driftwood colored) island. I’ll have to bookmark this for future projects.

    Really nice kitchen, I just can’t stop starring at it, I gonna be an architect so this is kind of fascinating me (: I like that photograph at the fourth pic.

    I love images 3 and 4 with the clean lines and more refined wood! Great contrast ideas, and those dipped stools are a great tie in! The use of different textures in kitchen 4 and the painted brick and wood ceiling are really interesting!

    I’m looking for cabinet hardware like in the first picture (long pulls in black). Cannot find anything anywhere. Do you know where those are from!?

IN THE DETAILS :: THE BIGGER PICTURE

Sometimes I think people mistake the idea of ‘details’ in the home as something small – little things that you add here and there to make the space feel special. This is totally true… but don’t sell yourself short when thinking about the bigger picture too. Whether you’re moving into a new home, remodeling your current […]

IN THE DETAILS :: KITCHEN ISLANDS

I think my favorite room in the house to re-imagine is the kitchen. Maybe it’s the fact that you can mix in so many cool materials, or that is can be the centerpiece of the home, but whatever the draw, I’m definitely into these details… While all the clutter is making me go crossed eyed, […]

    I love the first island but I’m not sure how long I could keep everything looking so orderly, or more importantly, if I could stop my dogs from licking the plates! :-)

    THANK goodness more decorators are thinking outside of the island…there is SO MUCH diversity there. I took extra kitchen cabinets, put them on casters, carved out the bottom panel with arches, different handles but in same brass…spray painted that thing metallic bronze…and it is unique! :) franki

    That last photo — I’ve often thought of getting a marble dining table, but when I think about eating on one, I reject the idea because I imagine it being so…cold and hard.

    I’m wondering if the chopping block is really just a softer warmer place to eat than the concrete. Supposing that’s where the “warmth of wood” phrase comes from?

IN THE DETAILS :: HOLIDAY DECOR

stephanieshome-piano

I actually stumbled across this editorial late this summer, and held on to it, knowing that I’d want to share it come December. I love the sweet, sparkly moments of holiday decor in this bright, white home! Funny how a flocked tree somehow doesn’t require as many bits and baubles, isn’t it? I love spreading […]

    That’s my kind of Christmas decorations. I love that tree, now I want to add snow to mine! That house is the perfect backdrop for Christmas decorations.

    I love that tree! I was at the garden center a few weeks ago and was happy to see a selection of flocked trees. I thought they would never come back in vogue.

    Would love a small one with twinkling lights in my dining room…..

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    Ivy
