Montage: 40 Kitchens in Every Color of the Rainbow

I’m down in Florida last week, and although the condo still needs work, I haven’t quite motivated to do anything. I had the pink tiles and tub in the master bath reglazed, but that’s about it. Mostly I’m waiting for the contractor to say he can start. We’re not doing a lot—the main objective is to put down a new floor, tear off the wallpaper, and repaint. Those are the must-do projects.


Kitchen Before Blue Backsplash

The kitchen is fine, once we get the nautical wallpaper down. (Big thanks to my husband who ordered the perfect white shade and installed it, replacing the painfully outdated navy Venetian blind.) The appliances are not fancy, but they work (though honestly, how does anyone live full time with a fridge with a top freezer?) The countertops are white tile, and there’s a miniature backsplash of varying shades of blue tile. Not ideal, since they’re cobalt rather than Tiffany blue, but we’ll make it work. Right now the cabinets are an ugly, very glossy,  bone color with even uglier round black knobs. Obviously the knobs are an easy fix. But what color to paint the cabinets. Probably just white, but it’s fun to imagine . . .

Montage: 47 Bedrooms with Upholstered Headboards

As I’m wrapping up the details on Meredith and Daniel’s apartment, I’m also sorting through my overabundance of images in iPhoto. In the mass cleanup are a multitude of upholstered beds. If you recall, the design process started with the master bedroom, because Meredith had a specific look in mind. Said look revolved around a great upholstered bed. We opted for a silhouette with gentle curves, white canvas upholstery, and nickel nail heads. As you can see from these rooms, there are so many different variations on shape, pattern, color, and detailing. Tomorrow I’ll round up specific styles for you to shop.

Montage: 54 Living Rooms with Gray Sofas

Why gray sofas? First, I apologize for missing two days of blogging. I took a quick day trip to Connecticut to visit a friend. A friend who has so much faith in my taste that she has hired me to decorate her gorgeous new apartment in New York City. You didn’t realize that I’m an interior designer? I’m not! This very loyal friend is confident that through my writing and research, experience overseeing the building and renovations of my own places, and years of absorbing interior images, that I can do this. Or rather, we can do this. It’s definitely a collaboration. And really fun.

I’ll mainly be choosing furnishings. The project doesn’t involve any construction, kitchens, or bathrooms. The apartment is brand new and will be delivered finished and pristine. We  will pick paint colors, wallpaper, rugs, furniture, and light fixtures (perhaps from Visual Comfort lighting.The budget is similar to what I would spend if it were my own home, which makes it a lot easier. I’m nervous, but excited.

We’ve decided to go with a gray sofa in her living room. We’re thinking about a serene white and gray scheme, or white and gray with green accents. The dining room is in the same space, so we can play with that too. I’m sure I’ll be treating you to a lot of posts inspired by our deliberations and eventual decisions.

If you’re shopping for a gray sofa, definitely click over to my shopping posts Get the Look: 22 Modern Gray Sofas and Get the Look: 60 Modern Grey Sofas, both of which were updated Spring 2015.
