 From beautiful bowls and cutting boards, to plants & pottery, there are some fabulous ways to organize your countertop clutter and add style at the same time. Below, are some of my favorite examples.

I love how Heather Bullard stacks her collection of cutting boards and displays her silverware & linen napkins in pottery and platters.

Adding a painting or piece of artwork can add a touch of personality, as well as connect the kitchen to the rest of the home.

Jean Stoffer’s use of plants in the kitchen brings a lovely polished greenhouse feel to it — very nice!

A fitting subject for my first post for 2018! The entry is the first room guest see, therefore, the perfect place to give them a preview of the what the rest of the home will offer.

By selecting oversized pendants and eye-catching rugs the entry can be the perfect room to make a statement.

This past summer in Mallorca I discovered the gorgeous design firm called Moredesign while reading the magazine, Ideas y Tendencies Interiors.

Founded by Oro del Negro and Manuel Villanueva, they offer services in architecture, design and landscaping.

There is an ease and elegance about the work of Moredesign — it’s unpretentious yet sophisticated. Love it!

Currently I’m searching high and low for exterior paint inspiration for a bungalow project that I’m working on and came across this gem. Take a look…

By using dark shingles and painting the porch white it really brings the focus to the porch. The baby blue accent on the shutters adds a touch of softness and color — perfection!

I love how the arches on the porch frame out the light fixtures and hydrangeas perfectly!

Love the hydrangeas in black planters!

As a designer I look to a lot of places for inspiration and hotels are a great source. This morning I came across this beauty — San Giorgio on the Greek Island of Mykonos and just had to share.

The interior design is by Annabell Kutucu & Michael Schickinger.

Have a great weekend!!
