We Spy With Our Designer Eye

Each Sunday we’ll share a design that caught our eye and we took some time to savor.  Architectural details, like the ones shared by Lonny Magazine of this cool kitchen.  At first glance we see a simple kitchen with clean lines.  With a closer look, we realize what an impact the combination of finishes makes!

Ooooh…Here’s What I Love About This Design!

  • the mix of metals with that copper pot!
  • now that copper pot is showcased by 3×6 subway tile in the most subtle hues of blues and greens
  • natural finish butcher block counter tops
  • euro style flush cabinet doors
  • extra long stainless bar cabinet hardware
  • slide in, no back range keeps the tile front and center in the design…I just know it has to be an induction cooktop!
  • how the tile splash runs up a little higher in the wall cabinet line
  • the aluminum edge to finish the exposed top of the tile
  • artistically modern oil/vinegar bottles and fruit bowl which can quickly become a salad bowl
  • simple frayed edge dish towel…how soft this must be from years of use
  • back to the pot and the lid knob and brass handles adding in another metal finish to this decor
  • a live plant on the hood?!
  • the hood up high enough to actually work
  • bright white grout in the tile because this cook says it worth a little extra care
  • there just has to be a black and white Boston Terrier shaking with delight that it’s almost time for a little something from the chef
  • or maybe the pup is laying under the coolest modern-day high chair and kiddo you can imagine!

Did You Notice The New Blog Format Today?

We’ve listened to you, our most loyal readers, and pushed ourshelves to tweak this baby!  We want her to be easy to read and a little more user friendly when navigating about.

Let us know what you think of the new format….the comment section should now be at the end of each post.  (We know…it should have been there all along!!)

  1. I really like the new design…especially the easy references on on the right hand side of the page.

  2. That copper pot is such a focal point, Laurel – I’m sure one of my aunts used to have something similar – it’s fabulous. The blog format is spot on too! Lxx

    1. Once again a real life item steals the decor! We’ve been in integration mode with our design website and the blog learning to live togetherness WordPress. Website should go live next week. Never did we think this baby blog would be such an asset to our firm. Thanks to our readers like you…it is growing up nicely!

  3. Copper is always a winner with me!
    I like any design that pleases my eye and doesn’t look like it’s trying too hard. This kitchen shot works 🙂
