This weekend, I delivered my latest custom client piece, a corner linen cabinet, so I’ll be sharing photos soon! For now, enjoy a few things that caught my eye this week, including a VERY full apartment, a stunning but simple kitchen update, and a few favorites from the just-finished One Room Challenge.
I’m mostly impressed that 5 adults can share 100o s.f. in harmony, but I also think it’s pretty wonderful how this group of friends live together in a space that doesn’t feel terribly cramped or inharmonious. The neutral color palette and abundance of plant life certainly helps, our only question is whether or not they’ve got a shower schedule…
Brady’s kitchen is a showstopper. Everything is just so well mixed- the powerful black and white, the warm wood tones, and those gorgeous copper pots! There are so many things I love about this small space: the powerful gallery wall, the DIY flooring upgrade, and the fact that he kept the original cabinets but spiced them up with simple and gorgeous brass fixtures. A true testament to making smart changes instead of gutting a space.
The One Room Challenge wrapped up this week, and there are so many inspiring room transformations to take in. My very favorite: Jo’s Living/Dining Room. It’s such a gorgeous, colorful space, you can’t help but crack a smile taking it all in. I love her idea of using a unique baseboard trim as the wall cladding, and something about those peach curtains is so unexpected and wonderful. I wouldn’t change a dang thing about this stunning room!
Erin’s kitchen underwent a HUGE transformation, and I’m so impressed with what she did. The end result is simple, thoughtful, unique, and glamorous. The contrasting cabinet materials are so special and creative, and the brass transitions are a super-glam fix to the challenge of bringing two types of flooring together, but the real showstopper is that custom hood. Those are individual metal rods welded into that gorgeous pattern, people! This is not a drill!
Another incredible kitchen: Abby’s green-infused makeover. Her project reminded me a lot of my goals for our someday kitchen renovation: the “before” was very workable, no major complaints- but it didn’t reflect her family’s style. The “after” is SUCH a win. Repainting her lower cabinets that bold green- it gives me all the heart-eyes! The bright white details elsewhere let that gorgeous green take center stage without being too bold. I’ll be referring back to these lovely photos often once I finally roll around to redoing our kitchen!
That’s it for this week- have a great one!
