Before & After: Kitchen Remodel

So my parent's remodel is finally finished! If you remember from my Kitchen Inspiration post in March, my parents recently moved out of their home of 25 years. Presented with the challenge of updating the kitchen quickly, within budget, I think we did a pretty good job. See for yourselves:

 p.s. My parents were in the process of packing, so the kitchen looks much messier than usual! Makes for quite a dramatic effect, though, right? ;)

Texture Me Tuesdays

Jim Thompson fabrics are too fabulous for words, and I am loving the new line - Opus - it's fifth collection by British designer, Richard Smith. I guess it's no surprise that I love bright colors...but these are completely over the top awesome, and so perfect for summer!

Bedroom Bliss

I love a good guest room furnished with double twin beds. It lends itself to symmetry and a chance to create a focal point. This room does both really well, and I love how the art is centered on the lamp rather than the beds, creating an unexpected yet balanced result.

A new segment on my blog...welcome to TGIFoyers! You may not know it yet, but I am obsessed with a great foyer, and hope to never live in a home that has not carved out a landing pad to greet guests warmly, shake off the rain, hang your hat, display great artwork, and transition from the outside in. Below is one of my all time favorite foyers... so perfect, it needs no explanation.

Workspace Wednesdays

A workspace that inspired my own...Erika Ward is a very talented designer based out of Atlanta, and her recent post showing her new office space motivated me to update my own!

I can see these in a gorgeous bright white bath, perhaps in a cottage by the sea...

Thursday's Things

Today's TT is more about an idea than an item...many of us city dwellers have the creative challenge of making small homes fit our lifestyles, personality, & budget. This Sunset Magazine article about budget-friendly small home strategies features a gorgeous home that has succeeded on all fronts. The home is beautifully decorated with pops of color, salvaged furniture, multi-use spaces, and great attention to detail & whimsy. With a bit of time and a discerning eye, we can all find great things from our local salvage yards and second-hand stores!
