My favorite metal finishes, a modern farmhouse kitchen and a MCM design plan...


Ahhh back to reality and some normalcy...right?  

The world is finally opening up, and all I can say is - what a difficult year this has been!  I've been busy this Spring with hourly design consultations and a handful of flat rate interior room designs (room makeovers). It's been so great getting back to work and doing what I love!  Here are a few fun things...

I was so happy to receive an email (above) from one of my clients and it absolutely made my day!  We had an hourly design consultation in their home, and then met a week later at West Elm and found the perfect sofa and club chairs for their small apartment space.  

Today and every day, I am thankful for wonderful clients. 

Our kitchen is finally finished with the addition of new gold hardware and I am loving the look!  

Clients always ask me about which metal finish I prefer for hardware, door knobs etc... For me personally I like to mix gold with dark oil rubbed bronze in my home.  Gold hardware works beautifully in a more traditional home.  However, If your style is more modern, you can also mix silver with dark oil rubbed bronze. 

 Tip:  when choosing oil rubbed bronze, look for a darker one that almost reads black.  Black hardware is another popular finish right now and If you have a white kitchen, bookcase or built-in, adding black hardware is a super fun & affordable update!  

Finally, all the finishes in a home do not need to match. It's perfectly fine to mix and match.
Speaking of kitchens, here's a fun client project - kitchen design board we completed this Spring!  

My client needed to update her kitchen, but wanted to keep her existing cherry wood cabinetry (center).  So we went with a modern - farmhouse look mixing creamy whites, warm woods and black for contrast.  New quartz countertops took center stage, classic subway tile, black lighting & hardware and finally new LV flooring completed this space.  

Current Project

Mid century modern is one of my favorite design styles, so I had so much fun putting this Design Board together.  
A beautifully renovated mid century modern home is getting a colorful new family room designed around my clients soon to be delivered Crate & Barrel sectional sofa.  This room has a vintage inspired wood accent wall, as well as a huge stone fireplace, Can't wait to see everything come together!   

So that is what's happening around here guys, thanks for checking in!  Always fun sharing my design adventures here :)
