The Right Combination
Happy Monday! To start off the week, I thought that I would give you a peek into a kitchen I recently designed. When designing any space, I often rely on the good ol' wedding rule: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue (well, I guess not everyone is as big of a fan of blue as I am..so often times blue doesn't make it into the space).
In this 1930's Spanish Bungalow gut job, I chose to ground the kitchen nook with a gorgeous Terra Antica stone. This stunning stone has a natural variation that has hints of terracotta with out being overtly Spanish. Atop this stone I chose to pair a set of rattan chairs and a pedestal table. To compliment the newness of these pieces, we used a gold gilt frame, "borrowed" from her mother and sourced fabulous vintage transfer-ware plates and wall brackets. My framer then mounted the 2 of them on chocolate linen. I feel this combination of new and old makes a room feel cozy. That's right, cozy. I use the word way too much in my day to day vocabulary so I thought you all needed to hear it here in my blog.
