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!

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.

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.

    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 :: 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 […]
