SIMPLE ELEGANCE

SIMPLE ELEGANCE

I'm incredibly inspired by this kitchen, designed by Betsy Brown. It's handsome yet elegant, and so casually livable. Often times in a kitchen, the hood is the focal point that's cladded in some sort of outstanding material. But here while still a focal point, the hood is quiet and addressed with a simple, matte stucco finish. The marble countertops are classic in form, but have been fabricated in a contemporary fashion by extending to the floor. The painted cabinets are handsome in color, perfectly offsetting the antique round table and modern klismos chairs by Donghia. I also love the tone-on-tone paint for this space, because it's a lovely backdrop for the dark windows.

CLASSIC PATTERN PLAY

CLASSIC PATTERN PLAY

I love this mulberry paper that comes in 24"x36" sheets that's from of all places, Paper Source! It reminds me of the lining that was used at the inside of classic, antique books. It's handsome in color, combining pale blue gray, metallic gold, charcoal and black. I plan to install this as wallpaper in my personal powder room, to bring some drama to the space. The floors are classically laid of Carrara marble in a solider brick / herringbone pattern. I'm combining two different pattern scales and creating a lovely melody of classic pattern play. I can't wait to share with you all, the end result! Stay tuned.
