I’m finally back!!! A long hiatus on the blog that was filled with holiday celebrations, influenza (boo!) and lots of design projects. One of my business goals for this year is to get caught up on the backlog of projects that haven’t been professionally photographed so I can finally update my website. The task seems overwhelming right now, but as with all things, I’m trying to take it one step/project at a time. In fact, I started today by having two rooms photographed, a baby room + toddler room, by the super talented, Lisa Such Photography. Add this blog post to my day, and I'm basically just checking things off the resolution list.
I’m so happy to be sharing the first of the design plans for a new project today, a remodel from the Harvey flood. This home belongs to young couple with a toddler and a newborn, who was actually born during this remodel process (talk about stressful situations)!! I absolutely love the design direction of this home and I cannot wait to see it completed.
The overall vibe of this home is clean + modern with a few subtle industrial touches. The floors in the common areas have been replaced with wood-look tile, which is light in color similar to White Oak.
In the kitchen, the perimeter cabinets are a soft gray and the island has been accented with a classic shade of navy. The elongated white subway tile backsplash compliments the quartz countertops and will add a cool modern feel to the space.
To add a natural detail to the kitchen, we’ve selected a light stain for floating shelves in both the kitchen + living room. We’ll also be wrapping the posts on the island in the same material. Brass accents were selected for the hardware + lighting, which adds warmth to the kitchen.
Open to the kitchen is the living room, dining room and entryway. When selecting the lighting for these spaces we wanted to make sure they felt cohesive with one another. We kept with the black + brass accents in each of these lighting choices and all have a modern + industrial feel to them.
Although separated by a door, the laundry room is directly off of the kitchen, so to connect these two spaces we kept the cabinet + wall color the same as the kitchen. To add some character, a patterned tile was selected for the floor which is a mix of gray, white + black. A simple, flush-mount light fixture was chosen by the homeowner.
In the next week or two I’ll be sharing the progress of these rooms (tile work + cabinetry are almost wrapped) as well as the design plan for the hall bathroom + master bathroom. Until then, hope ya'll have a great weekend!
