Too many pretty kitchens! I’m beginning to feel important envy of everything the bright sunlight also cabinet room I’m seeing. The overall effect of this kitchen plus its tone palette – white, dark browns with grays plus the pop of shining pinks also greens — is sophisticated, calming in conjunction with chic.

My advice = retain your eyes with mind open. We actually weren’t too picky regarding the bit of furniture. It just had to be the right size with plentys of storage. We knew we desired to convert a bit of furniture to be the island, so we searched out everything the standard location’s. I ended up discovery this one at a consignment shop on clearance. I could view it needed a small work, so I asked if they were willing to take the cost down. viewing back, I don’t believe I would’ve picked elsewhere these particular corbels. as they are pretty, they were extremely expensive.

as they are pretty, they were extremely expensive. I ended up discovery similar big ones at the same house improvement shop that were much less expensive just a scarce weeks later! You gotta love large, bold stripes. They always create a statement, even in very small doses, like on these chair protections via Sarah Torrence. While I would be equally pleased with these chairs in their indigenous dark complete, I value the high contrast that Sarah has maked, in conjunciton the complete is impeccably done. Well done, Sarah!
The lesson I’ve learned from this Before & After is that if formal dining isn’t your thing, you can turn your dining room into an awesome home library — that’s a valuable lesson in my book. Jennifer enlisted the help of her friend, interior designer Autumn Clemons, to revamp this beige box and turn it into a dark, dramatic and ultra-modern space. Splurging on key pieces like the curtains and the sculptural light fixture was a wise decision; they really stand out and pull the entire look together. I’m sure this room will see far more use than it did prior to the redesign. Great job, Jennifer and Autumn!
What is a relatively small bathroom instantly gains in space when it has a diagonal checkerboard floor! The pattern is perfect for narrow spaces that need the illusion of expansion. Say goodbye to claustrophobic bathrooms and hello to ones that feel like a dynamic cozy space!
i’m a big fan of wallpaper accent walls and this dining room from rebekah at orange poppy is a great example. just a few hours of pasting and hanging and you’re left with a wall full of color and pattern. i love the new blue and green palette rebekah decided to go with- especially that blue hutch. so cute. click here to check out rebekah’s shop and here to check out her blog.
This steamer trunk, belonging to Anne Sheldon-Duplaix, traveled back and forth with her grandparents between New York and Europe, holding all their possessions until it was passed to her parents’ home in Northern France, and then on to her. She used it to store a carefully curated fabric collection and her dreams of becoming a clothing seamstress. One day, Anne opened the trunk and began sewing clothes for her daughter, which led her to open a children’s clothing shop by constructing clothes from the fabric stored in the steamer trunk at her East Village, NYC home.
Last month I decided to live out my dining room fantasy by rounding up 25 of my favorite dining rooms with round tables, and today I’m finishing with the rest! These 30 dining rooms show how beautiful (and dramatic) square and rectangular tables can be, and all of the different ways you can decorate and light them. If you’re looking for dining room ideas, this post will definitely keep you busy for a while. I hope you enjoy it! xo, grace
The den in Kris Drayovitch’s home in Plano, TX is full of furniture that originally belonged to her grandparents along with other family heirlooms, like this vintage Suzani above the couch from her parents’ trip to the Mediterranean. She shares, “I love having pieces in my home that have a history and remind me of loved ones every time I walk into the room.”
I’d like to consider myself an inventive thinker, but after looking at these file cabinets, I have to say that I never would have thought to transform them the way Matthew did. Matthew had been looking for minimalist metal planter boxes for a while and when he spotted these file cabinets for 50 cents a piece (!) at a local thrift shop, the answer was clear. This project is so simple to recreate and I love the clean and simple results. You can read about his whole process here, and if you’re lucky enough to find a similar steal on file cabinets, you should definitely consider this a great way to put them to use. Great job, Matthew!
