20 Things I Love For Kitchen Remodels

Dear Sweet Friend,Over the years, I have seen a LOT of kitchen remodels -- some good, some bad, and some just plain UGLY.  It’s been fascinating to me to watch friends redo their kitchens and to see all of the fun design decisions they have made that have either led to a very successful, well-planned and efficient kitchen or to a poorly thought out design disaster.  So, in an effort to help you on your project (or to stick in your kitchen dream binder for later), I’ve put together twenty things I love for Kitchen Remodels!  Enjoy!!

How To Create a Focal Point

Dear Sweet Friend, Can we talk about focal points today? I’d like to share why I think your home needs them. And not just your home, but every room in it. Let’s first have a quick lesson on what a focal point is and what it does. When you enter a room, typically the focal point is the item or area your eyes are drawn to. Maybe you enter the kitchen at a friends house and you can’t help but notice the amazing island they have with stools right in the middle. Quite different from the other friend who doesn’t have an island but an elaborate hood and stove combo instead.
