IN THE KITCHEN :: MOD MEETS FARMHOUSE

pop color fruit art in the kitchen via martha stewartjpg

Lately, I’ve been drawn to the idea of bold color in the kitchen – specifically in primary tones of red, blue and yellow. But I’m not talking cabinets or wall paint – I’m talking vintage modern accessories mixed with farmhouse style. Think mod pop art, enamelware canisters, schoolhouse clocks and powder-coated industrial stools… In a super warm […]

    I definately agree with you that this is a great idea, by using accessories for that pop of colour!
    For me also full on colour for units and walls is too much!!

    I love the retro feel of your chioces. Updating with accessories means that if you get bored or decide to move on with a different look then it is much easier to update.

IN THE KITCHEN :: COMMERCIAL VS. CONVENTIONAL

industrial kitchen with light wood

i come from a restaurant family, so it’s no wonder that I’m drawn to a bit of a commercial style in my kitchen. After all, open shelving, plenty of stainless steel and a more ‘deconstructed’ feel isn’t anything new… But, how far is too far when taking this look into the home? The kitchen above just about […]

    It’s so funny because whenever I see photos of such beautiful kitchens (mostly on pinterest), I always surprise myself at the really big variety of styles I’m drawn to. While at heart I love my classic kitchens with a more rustic feel, I also have seen some uber-modern, sleek and minimalistic kitchens I love. That last kitchen is just the right balance though- so gorgeous and can only dream of having something like that one day!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I love the romantic, industrial inspired kitchen with patterned floors, as well as the rustic, traditional kitchen with the morning light flooding in!

    I like the last kitchen with the glass door and the window with flowers or herbs beside because I’m into big romantic traditionally looking kitchens. Like you said, the light is very important when you cook and for me, also the possibility to get fresh air into the room very quickly is quite essential, especially when something goes wrong during cooking. ;) I moved to Toronto a month ago and I want my new flat to be original so I’m thinking about trying vintage style. I found a list of some shops here last week and I’ve already visited some of them. They had some unique pieces even for the kitchen but I’m still not sure. What do you think about vintage kitchens? Is it a good idea? I would be thankful for any of your recommendation!

INTERIORS TO INSPIRE :: URBANE ECLECTIC IN SPAIN

mikkel larrinaga bilbao apartment living room1

I’ve noticed a shift in my interiors taste lately… which seems to happen every few years or so. It seems natural, of course, for this to happen. If we stay stagnant, we aren’t growing, and that goes for taste and life in general! But I’m actually surprised by some of the things I’m attracted to – […]

    I totally understand this shift in style preferences. I have been finding myself leading towards some of the same things, in a way I feel like it grounds me a bit a I get older

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 7.17

thomas obrien west village loft kitchen

I’ve been paying an absurd amount of attention to kitchens lately. Why? Well, on top of the small remodel we did in our office studio, I’ve been slowly updating the kitchen in my loft, and of course daydreaming of remodeling the one in my guy’s house too. It’s an overwhelming task, and the more I look […]

    I love how casual that kitchen is. And the color of the cabinets are different from what you see every day. It is a beautiful space. I agree with you I have been loving brass pulls lately too, but wonder how it would be with the stainless steel. Good luck!

    I agree with what Lianna said. This kitchen reads so casual, it just invites you in. And the storage, like the OP said, amazing! Practical + Good looking is always great. The wallcovering, or brick facade, whatever it is, also provides a nice pop in the space. Same with the faux or true granite against the wall…

HIGH SHINE IN THE KITCHEN!

gold kitchen cabinets fiona lynch

I like shiny things. I love hanging out in my kitchen. So, I should probably really really love this mini metallic trend of super glamorous cabinets in materials like brass and mirror… But the practical side of me just sees little babes running around putting their fingerprints all over these beauties and me constantly right behind them […]

    Maybe best not to have a husband either if you want to keep these pristine. i don’t feel like these are kitchens that see actual use but they sure look nice in pictures.

    These kitchens are beauties – I agree with you though, they are apparently made for looking at not actually cooking in.

    (Same finger print idea goes for black kitchen cabinets too.) From experience, husbands don’t always use the hardware on cabinets either – which makes for finger prints in the most unlikely of spots.
