Kitchen Pass Throughs

A client of mine wants to open up her kitchen to the dining room.   For storage purposes we need to keep the lower cabinets.  Most kitchen pass throughs to the dining room or living room look like these.    

Instead of the above columns,  we want to add some upper glass cabinets and make it look like a built in china cabinet so the rooms are visually separated but still open.  

These are the options we are exploring with the contractor.  I'll keep you posted on what we determine to be feasible in the space and with our fast, fast, fast timeline.

A little bling

A little bling goes a long way in making a room sing.    I've always loved Ochre chandeliers for their clean modern sparkle.   They make and ordinary room extraordinary.   And for years, they've been the go to source.  

And this chandelier paired with a rustic wood table is one of my favorite dining rooms.   Wish I knew the source of the chandelier.  

But there may be a new source for bling in town.  Monique Lhuillier, the queen of amazing bridal gowns, has just launched a new line of lighting with Waterford.   She may give Ochre some competition.   Her Melrose chandelier is as stunning as her couture dresses.   I can't wait to see the rest of the line.  

If I can't have one of her dresses, maybe I can at least have one of her lighting fixtures.

Living Room Love

This Steven Gambrel living room caught my eye.   First, the mill work is amazing.  Second, the furniture layout for a large space is genius.   I really like that he used two sofas with different yet complementary coffee tables, and then multiple chairs.  A great space for large gatherings or a quiet Sunday morning reading spot.  Proving again that he is one of the masters.
