DESIGN CRUSH

Love the work of interior designer, Monique Gibson, and one of my favorite Gibson projects is John Mellencamp’s home in South Carolina (see below).

Gibson’s talent to make large spaces feel warm and inviting, yet stylishly interesting, is stunning.

Happy Friday!

Although I love the beautiful dainty pendant for a kitchen island, I was reminded by this image, how an oversized pendant can take a normal space and turn it into an extraordinary space — love it!

Happy Wednesday!

PRETTY IN PUGLIA

Don Totu Dimora Storica is an 18th century palazzo turned six bedroom B&B in Puglia. I love how the texture and color of the exterior walls acts as the perfect backdrop for the different varieties of cactus, lavender and other plant life. Super gorgeous and inspiring!

Feel like your kitchen needs an update but don’t want to take on a major remodel? Today, I’m sharing 5 easy ways to update your kitchen to give it a whole new look without the headache of a renovation.

1 ADD A NEW RUG

Adding a runner or area rug (depending on the size of your kitchen) can add gorgeous color and texture to your kitchen.

2. CHANGE OUT YOUR HARDWARE

SCHOOL HOUSE

I like to think of cabinet hardware as the jewels of your kitchen. Match the hardware to the finish of your light fixture or use it as a bold accent — whatever the case, it is an easy way to update your kitchen.

3. ADD NEW STOOLS

Replacing your stools is an easy and very effective way to add an accent color to your kitchen. They can easily add warmth to an all white kitchen, as in the photo above, or if you want more texture in your kitchen try a natural fiber stool.

4.  REPLACE LIGHTING

 Brit + Co

Replacing (or adding pendants) is a great way to not only update your kitchen but add drama as well. I love these oversized pendants above.

 

5. PAINT, PAINT, PAINT

Amber Lewis

Whether you just paint your island or your entire kitchen, a new paint color can completely change the feel of your kitchen + make the biggest impact.

Happy Monday!

Here’s a little inspiration as we head into the weekend — a gorgeous home designed by Michael Smith┬áon the beautiful island of Mallorca. Just gorgeous!

Have a great weekend!!
