We Spy With Our Designer Eye

Each Sunday we’ll share a design that caught our eye and we took some time to savor.  Designs that are a little different than the norm, like this one shared by  At first glance, this unique snack bar at the window draws us in.  With a closer look, let’s look at all the well-planned details that really make this such a welcoming home!

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

  • satin smooth black cabinets with a transitional door style
  • marbleized quartz countertops with a full wall splash…instead of expected subway tile
  • a natural, irregular edge wood top creating a wonderful snack spot in front of the windows
  • this may be a galley kitchen with the absence of an island….unknown for certain but refreshing
  • a perfect shade of white on the kitchen walls, ceiling and trim work
  • warm wood floors meet an extended base with a nice cap detail
  • simple casement header on the opening to the dining room
  • a dining room getting used everyday!
  • modern, larger than pendants lighting artistically placed over the bar area…envision how these must set the scene at night
  • larger burnished pulls on the lower cabinets are easy to use
  • what a wonderful, agean color above white slat lower walls in the dining room
  • elevated upper wall cabinets allow for this cool metal shelf underneath
  • copper kettle, cookbooks and a plant on the slender shelf
  • nicely scaled counter stools with a view
  • ah…the small, worn brass, back plate and ringed cabinet pull on the upper doors
  • the introduction of yet another aged metal in the dome fixture over the dining table
  • woven, recessed window shades provide just the right amount of privacy when needed, dappled sunlight or unobstructed views
  • a round dining table living happily with contemporary sled base chairs
  • the dining room area rug feels soft on morning feet
  • counters and dining room table accessorized with items ready to use, and a bit of the backyard as a centerpiece
  • Mom, so busy all week, just finishing the clean up from making the cupcakes on the cake stand
  • her family lingering about asking when those  goodies will be ready
  • sister, and her kids, on the way over to have lunch and enjoy a day catching up
  • hubs heading out the back door, stolen cupcake in hand, to get materials for the next DIY project
  • happy weekend!
