Beautiful Breakfast Nooks

Friday, April 6, 2018 · Leave a Comment 

Breakfast nooks or eat-in banquettes are a perfect design solution for saving space.  We love how practical they are for families and the casual, cozy appeal that they add to a space.

This mid-century style dining nook feels warm and inviting, yet modern.  The space utilizes the beautiful views and eliminates the excess furniture.

The design of this breakfast nook is very versatile.  The built-in banquette could easily double as a reading bench and the additional furniture could be stored to create more space.

This light and bright breakfast nook is so dreamy.  The solid bench is ideal for keeping the space clean, while throw pillows are added for style and comfort.

How charming is this tiny breakfast nook?  This dining area is the perfect space-saving solution; all you need is a corner, bistro table and two chairs!  We love the black and white theme with adorable cane bistro chairs.

Exposed Concrete

Exposed concrete is a look we love.  It can be used in many different ways, but always adds industrial character to a room.  Adding an element of your design in exposed concrete goes well with a super contemporary scheme or can be mixed with different styles to create a complex look with lots of contrast.

Rose Quartz Accents

Pantone’s color of the year, Rose Quartz, has made a big splash in the fashion industry and the interior design industry alike.  We are loving the use of this celebrated color in home accents including wall color and furniture pieces.  This warm shade of pink offers natural blush like variations that compliment many different color spectrums and give a fun, sophisticated pop.  A rose quartz subway-tiled bathroom is a funky and bold way to showcase this color!

Black Doors

Friday, March 25, 2016 · Leave a Comment 

Our latest inspiration is a timeless trend that brings elegance to any space in your home. Black doors are a crisp contrast when paired with neutrals or a black and white color scheme, leaving a dramatic impact. They bring a fresh perspective on the classic white or wooden doors, while still being a neutral color that blends beautifully into dark floors or can even disappear entirely into a dark wall to create a space that feels bigger. Black french doors create a beautiful frame to the adjoining room or outside view, while solid black interior doors balance other dark voids in the room, such as a television. The finish on this classic color can be tailored to the style of the home; matte as a modern, understated look and glossy for a more elegant space. Black is no longer a color used just for exterior doors. Bringing this color from the front door to the office door, updates a space in an unexpected and fresh way.
