Hello Kitty Tile. Yes, It Does Exist.

Before I elaborate on that title, a little mush for all of you, since today is Valentine’s Day after all: Seriously, you guys are the best readers. I started this blog over a year ago as an outlet for my pent-up creative energy, and because I figured my friends and family would probably tire of … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Yellow

Well, October is officially over, and November is here. To me, this marks the beginning of the holiday season. And before you jump down my throat about celebrating holidays too early (Christmas decorations for sale in October? Slightly excessive, Costco), let me clarify that my mood begins to shift from winter dread to childlike excitement. … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Orange

Happy Halloween my beautiful (and handsome) readers! I’m taking it easy on Halloween this year; just a nice night carving pumpkins with my significant other and watching scary movies while he tries to scare the bejezus out of me. I hope you are all enjoying your holiday as well! In honor of this great holiday, … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Green

I would like to begin by mentioning that I was very surprised by how many green kitchen concepts I found. When I began this post, I had over 30 photos. I have whittled it down to these 15, which is still quite a bit larger than any of my other color-related posts, but I had … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Red

While I have already taught you how to add a red *kapow!* to your kitchen before, this post will focus entirely on using red tile. Red is a tricky color to get right, I’m not going to sugarcoat it for you folks. I was only able to find a handful of photos that I felt comfortable sharing … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Blue

I’ve been called out. Yes, dear readers, one of you has called me out. And I thank you for it. I have been posting a lot about neutral kitchens lately. In my defense, that is due to the fact that the overall trend with kitchen design at the moment is towards neutrals, but that is … Continue reading

Kitchen Backsplash Trends

So, earlier this year I wrote a post discussing the tile trends for 2011. This was an all-encompassing list of the top 5 trends in the world of tile. A reader has suggested that I do up a post on backsplash-specific tile trends, and I thought that was a fabulous idea, so here we are. … Continue reading

A Traditional Kitchen Idea

I came up with a beautiful concept for a client today that I thought I would share with all of you. First of all, if any of you have come across Giallo Portofino granite, you already know that it’s beautiful…but a pain in the you-know-what to coordiante with. It has gray, taupe, white, burgundy, and … Continue reading

Tile Trends: 2-Dimensional is So Last Year

Being sick sucks. But there is something especially cruel about summer colds. Of all the things I’d like to be doing when the sun is shining and the beach is 3 blocks from my condo, I can tell you that the last thing I want to do is lay on my couch all day watching … Continue reading

10 Ways to Add a Red *Kapow!* to Your Kitchen

Ah red. Deep down, I believe that we all love red…in large part because it’s so unexpected. It’s rarely found in nature, so when it does pop up, it has quite the “wow” factor. Since design tends to mimic nature, it’s natural that it has the same “kapow” when showing up inside a home. Below, I … Continue reading
