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?

ESCAPE TO WATSONS BAY…

Watsons Bay Hotel _1

This morning I set my alarm for 6:30am in an attempt to jump right back into a good routine this week. I woke up at 8am. Whoops. The fact that I haven’t known what day of the week it is for a while now (and knowing New Year’s Eve is going to keep messing with […]

IN THE DETAILS :: WOOD YOU, COULD YOU?

coco+kelley in the details wood appliances

As we dig into remodeling our office kitchen, I’ve been obsessing lately over materials and details… most of which we won’t likely be seeing in our own kitchen, but that doesn’t stop a girl from dreaming… The second I saw this custom side-by-side freezer and fridge in rustic wood, I kind of died. I’m not a huge […]

    I’m SO with you on stainless overload! Having that HUGE appliance (fridg) blended in is so to my liking. Not feeling the wood/cream combination, however, would have to see it “all together.” Great photos! franki

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 10.31

I may have mentioned it before here, but consider this my official announcement that our little collective where I house my office will be expanding into the floor above ours as well! We signed the lease last week and get the keys tomorrow. Which means mama’s got a new project on her hands! With old […]

KITCHEN {PATTERN} SPLASH

So many times when designers do projects, they end up with some leftovers – fabric, wallpaper, maybe even tiles or marble. And what comes out of these pieces? Usually, not much. But these two kitchen areas got me thinking… There have been so many times where I’ve passed up a small pile of beautiful tile […]

    I’ve often wondered the same thing, especially when I see a fabulous wallcovering, knowing that it’s way too pricey for me to ever afford to paper an entire room! But love the idea of doing just a wee little spot. And that tiled niche? Best thing ever.

      Covering books with great wallpaper and using them to stack in a bookcase, use to prop under candle sticks, small plants, use on a night stand. Adds visual interest and a pop of color!
