Affordable solutions to bring new life to your kitchen!


If you are like most women, you spend a considerable amount of time in your kitchen and like most women (and men) , a refreshing new look would lift your spirit.
How do you accomplish that and not break the bank?
The answer is mixing finishes.

You can incorporate black and gold to any stainless steel kitchen appliances and achieve a bolder, lived-in edge.

If you are remodeling or refreshing, cabinet pulls, light fixtures, faucets and other hardware are the easiest ways to achieve a kitchen change and experience the upbeat pleasure of new.

While oil-rubbed bronze and brass were the most recent haves, people are now experimenting with a variety of metal finishes, including champagne brass and charcoal stainless.

There are many beautiful options besides the once popular brass. I like to mix finishes, and I think my clients are comfortable with that. A client might opt for brass hardware and a different metallic color in lighting.
One of my favorite finishes is mixing black or really darker bronze faucets (for a modern, clean look) with brass hardware to add sophistication against stainless steel appliances.

Here’s the catch, though. There is a real danger in incorporating too many different finishes in a small space that can look too busy: two or three make things interesting and stylish.

If you are unsure how to achieve what I am proposing, consider hiring an interior designer. For a moderate consultation fee, you will save a lot of time  and money and not make costly mistakes.
Our training and experience will guide you. You’ll be in safe hands and broaden your concepts of design.

Don’t worry, be happy!

Step 2:  I recommend neutral sheets and layering your bedding with one or two accent colors. Layers are all about warm, cozy TEXTURE! I’m picturing wool, velvet (traditional and crushed) quilts, or soft nubby pi…

February is synonymous with Valentine’s Day

But shouldn’t romantic settings be a part of people’s lives all year? February 14 is when the florists and the candy stores and jewelry counters get lots of attention. However, the intimacy of romance is often centered in the bedroom. Is yours an invitation for romance or so neuter it’s uninspiring?
