Simply Stated

This drop dead gorgeous kitchen is a wonderful source of inspiration for simple gestures in small spaces. It has an understated feel, restrained color palette, and a “not-too-much-going-on” appeal. While the color scheme is simple, the stained wood and the grid of the backsplash tile offer a subtle textural element in the space. My favorite design statement is the DIY solution for pendant lighting. Brilliant! An inexpensive, interesting and powerful presence in the space.

The eclectic collection of chairs, artwork and objects in the living area give a personality and warmth to this modern home. The rustic quality of the table is a great textural addition, yet it is beautifully integrated by painting it white, blending in with the surrounding walls, and managing its visual impact. The details are what make the difference. Did you notice the plumbing fixtures in the shower and at the sink are simple, expressed brass plumbing fittings? Love it.
