White as Snow

We are getting a lot of the white stuff here in the triangle area. We North Carolinians are not use to the snow, sleet, and freezing rain so when it happens everything shuts down. We make sure we have our bread and milk and we hunker down in our warm, cozy homes. 

I do enjoy watching it snow. I love to look in my backyard and see the ground and trees covered in white. It inspired me to design a room in white....all white.  When you use one color in a room, it is very important that you add other elements such as texture, geometries, and layers. 

Comment below for a full source list of this design.

Here are some inspirational images of white







If you are getting snow, enjoy it. Get outside and throw a few snowballs, make a snow angel and a snowman. And just remember, we only have 23 days left until Spring.

Mixing Metals Kitchen Design

One of my favorite things to do is mix things up. I guess it's the rebel side in me.

I love mixing metals.  When it comes to kitchen appliances and hardware, go ahead and mix it up. 
Stainless, bronze, brass, etc. The key is to not over do it. 

Here I have designed a kitchen plan that incorporates stainless appliances with brass hardware for an overall modern, yet interesting mix. 

Matching or mixing, neither is wrong. Kitchen renovations can be very expensive so I understand wanting to have everything to match. Just remember, when done well, mixing the metals can enhance your overall look. 

Go ahead and be a rebel. You will like it!!
