Entries in dining room (77)
For the goth in you.
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
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.

...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.
