Everything But Kitchen Sink... In PINK?

YES, I know it's been quite a while since I blogged. I do have an excuse! I broke a finger in my right hand so typing was put on hold until the last couple of weeks!  However, it did give me time to think about design, art and so many things I neglected over the Summer due to this traumatic injury.  
This injury has allowed me to spend more time with my youngest daughter Brooke. She truly and literally became my right hand. She helped me with projects and helped keep me organized,I am very lucky to have her.
Brooke has very feminine taste and informed that she would love a pink kitchen if she ever gets her dream apartment in the "West Village". At first I was like, WHAT? A "pink" kitchen!
Then it occurred to me if she loves pink then a pink kitchen she shall have.  I decided to come up with some palatable pink kitchen images and ideas and if she does get her wish one day, I might actually be a bit jealous!  If you could have any color kitchen for a day what would it be?

Okay if you're afraid of pink cabinets and pink backsplash , maybe pink flooring?

Alright maybe just blush counter stools will do it?

New Rustic Country

Well, I have been quite busy with design projects so I will not complain! I am starting another project in Florida, but it will be far from coastal in design.  The client loves her California french country style, so she would like a fresh version of this on the East Coast. I am thinking of introducing her to the "New Rustic Country".  You know that country style that has lots of white oak, european tiles, warm cabinet hardware... etc.
Starting with Kitchen cabinet styles I think all clean wood shaker, with possible open shelves or glass front uppers and either a poured counter or....now don't freak out.................................  





 A tiled island  or surround counter and backsplash.
Before you hit delete let me show you what I am thinking and it involves very tight grout lines with chiseled edges.  Then I follow it up with a hardware board to help figure out what metals she is drawn towards.  Don't worry I will definitely post this project here and on Instagram so stay tuned!

Mad About The MIX!

I am working with a client who happens to also be a good friend.  She has wonderful taste, which of course makes my job that much easier! Her  apartment is definitely a modern eclectic mix of pieces and installations..and now we are creating the icing for this gorgeous cake.
We are  going to mix it up! It is  so much fun when two different  styles collide, such as traditional and modern.
We are going for that look with art and accessories, and I cannot wait to show you the finished project. So please stay tuned or check out my Instagram for progress HERE.
Meanwhile just look at the marriage of these styles and how they effortlessly blend together...
