Here's a post of random things that have gotten my attention this week.
The above photo may not be new to you, but it was to me. My jaw hit the floor when I saw this on Two Ellie. (It suspect it was published sometime in the last three years, after my twins arrived on the scene two months early and when I subsequently lost all interest in interior design in my all-consuming desire and duty to keep them alive.)
My jaw also dropped when I realized all these fabulous pictures I kept coming across on blogs and Pinterest belonged to one man, Mark Sikes. His house was recently featured in House Beautiful, but you can see more pictures on this post at Habitually Chic.
After I posted about using decanters as a vase for single stems of flowers, I noticed that the two above photos had similar vases. I'm not claiming at all to have come up with this idea. Rather, I think these images subconsciously burned themselves into my brain, and I couldn't help but copy!
I do love kitchens. I hope you don't mind me posting about them all the time.
Check out this peninsula made from an antique piece of furniture! Here's another view of it in what I deem to be a kitchen with pure personality and sense of self -- if a kitchen had a sense of self.
Yeah, I think this kitchen has a sense of self.
And boy, is she a beaut!
More kitchens, You All.
Not enough room for deep counters doesn't mean you can't have full-sized sink.
I have a special place in my heart for teensy kitchens. I once had a kitchen even smaller than this, if you can believe it. I could stand at the sink, and turn and stir something on the stove, and then reach into the fridge without taking more than one step. It was one of my favorite kitchens to date. Wish I had a picture...
What is this place? Is it even a kitchen? Whatever it is, it is captivating. The stainless steel sink with built in drainboard, the marble backsplash, the pretty metal shelve above it...
The thing I love most, however, is that cool paper towel holder. Do you think the swing arm rods are attached? Where does one even find such a thing?
