Mint had a major fashion moment this year, in fact its moment hasn’t ended. It’s still everywhere! This trend has had more staying power than I expected (and I’m glad, because I totally bought into it) and I think I could live with it for quite a while. Like, forever. It reminds me of the green tint of Spanish glass, and its fresh & clean palette is the perfect setting for preparing food – clearly I want a mint kitchen. I’d go so far as to tile my kitchen in it. I should probably mention that my bedroom was painted mint (“Mint Majesty,” to be exact) for years and I absolutely loved the way my black bedframe and white bookshelves looked against it.

Mint + black + white = classic.

I must still have Olympic medals on the brain (finally watched the Spice Girls reunion last night!) because I’m dreaming about gold, silver and bronze finishes in the kitchen. 
The kitchen is a room dominated by wall-fulls of wooden cabinetry, and wooden cabinetry can be super susceptible to dating (ie that certain blonde wood kitchen that screams 90’s). I think that’s why I love these kitchens so much! The metal is the focal point – and gold never gets old. Big call? Maybe. But I’m standing behind it.
Gold never gets old.

This layout is from my most recent post for CamilleStyles! Aren’t you just dying for that kitchen’s beautiful brass range hood? For more pictures of this kitchen (the countertops are to-die-for) and the deets on all of these items, hop on over to!

I do believe my meals would be all the more colorful if cooked in this kitchen. I wonder where one finds colorful glasses and gold cups? And I wonder if ghost chairs are a trend that will end any time soon… because if I invest in some I’d like them to stay around awhile!

What do you think? Are we over ghost chairs?

INTERIORS:: Pantone Color of the Year 2011

12 Dec

Need a pink Smeg fridge. Need.

The Pantone color of the year 2011 is pink! Well, Honeysuckle to be exact. 
It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it.
I’m particularly excited for this new development because three of my newest purchases just arrived in the mail, three new paintings, all primarily pink! One’s huge and I’m sure will make a big impact on any room, and the other 2 are smaller but to die for. Perhaps I’ll take some pics for you once they’ve been stretched and hung! I feel like Christmas has come early.

INTERIORS:: Eclectic kitchen inspiration

7 Dec
One of my favorite kitchens of all time
Equally eclectic living room

Another view of the kitchen – note the cat dining area on the left!

This beautiful home belongs to one half of the blogging duo behind Desire to Inspire (one of the best interior design blogs). As I said above, this is absolutely one of my favorite kitchens of all time, I can just stare at it and all of its details to no end!
Things I love: the wooden cupboards, the pendant lighting, the modern chairs, the bright traditional rug, and of course the teapot collection! Take a good long look at the top photo, there’s so much more to love.

I just can’t get over  how well this beautiful kitchen mixes modern and vintage. Open shelving, the vintage fridge, the chandelier.. but my most favorite piece is the antique wood island, flanked of course by Ikea barstools – just to keep it fresh.
