Love

Love the texture. Love the play of the natural wood tones against the white. Love the art. Love the simplicity. Love this dining room by Marika Jarv Creative.

Drama in the dining room

For the goth in you. 

Via Commune

On a side note, I am heading to Puerto Vallarta in the morning for 10 days of sun and about 60C warmer weather. I have posts ready for while I am away so you won't even miss me, plus Jo is here to hold down the fort. I will be checking emails and doing my usual business, including instagramming (@kim_dti) if you want to see what trouble I am getting into. No pet posts until I return but I am still taking submissions = kim[@]desiretoinspire[.]net
See ya!

Another project by General Assembly

Here is another peek at a project by General Assembly. It is a single family home in Brooklyn built in the 1950s and was in desperate need of an overhaul. It now sports a mid-century modern vibe and some definite coolness. The reno included custom kitchen cabinetry with concrete counter tops; a kitchen island with built in wine storage; and additional custom storage throughout – including flip-top kitchen benches. Then there’s the solid oiled white oak suspended shelving we custom designed for the kitchen. The shelves are supported by steel bracing and anchored into a steel plate in the ceiling. By opening up the shelving above the sink, GA was able to capture the light from a nearby skylight and the surrounding windows to create an open, sun-filled environment for serious cooking. (Photos by Joe Fletcher)

I also dream about...

...having a little kitchen dining nook with banquette seating. This little spot surrounded by windows is a dream I have had for as long as I can remember.

...mudrooms. A home for all those coats and winter paraphernalia and wet snowy boots and cat leashes. Where the floors won't get destroyed. Where my husband and I can enter the house and remove our outerwear without bashing into each other. I have not had that in about 8 years. :( Yes, I also dream of mudrooms.
