Like Mother, Like Daughter: A Future Interior Designer

...and I heard it Thursday morning when I woke up at 4:45 am.

Kitchen: An empty can falling on the floor

Me:  Hello in there?

Kitchen: Morning, mom?

Me: You are still up?

Kitchen: Yup, going to bed now.

Something is wrong when the 13 year old is going to bed
at 5 am on a school night!

A year and a half ago, I wrote about this same
school project... but it involved my son.

Check it out  here

Middle school English requires the parents students,
to create an autography scrapbook of their lives...

And here's a peek at Avery's creation-
(29 pages in all!)

Each photo page required an essay...

Here's my favorite...

Avery's goal to become an Interior Designer

How cute is she posing in her room when she was tiny...

Even with all the crazy hours and incredible workload,
my 13 year old can see the joy in her mom
and she works a career that is so fulfilling.

I'm so lucky to do what I do!!!

Do what you love... and the rest will fall into place-

Even though it may be a process getting there:)

Until next time,

A Custom Kitchen in Progress: Part 2

Well, it has almost been three months and we are starting to see the finish line!  

My client, New York, New York, has taken a small "facelift" of a project and 
turned it into a complete "overhaul"!!!

This is what I've been looking at over there for the past two months...

Which started out like this...

And today looks like this!

Okay, I have to admit there is a long way to go... but this is progress!!!!

Read about the full project here...

As a recap, we settled on semi custom cabinetry by Kraftmaid 
and designed this beautiful kitchen and 
this awesome wine bar... yum.

If you are having trouble envisioning this...
here's some help-

and this...

A full suite of Viking appliances patiently awaits in the warehouse-

A combo of Caesarstone and Blue Azul granite go in soon!

And... multiple options for lighting
(which has been a power struggle...wink wink)

Here's some favorites:

Island pendant lighting... still pending-

While we are at it... there's more.

Powder Bath Before:

Last Week:


Emser Contempo Tile

Coming soon...

Sweet potty
 Ridiculously difficult tile to source...
thank you Homero-

Kohler floating vanity...

Cool lighting from Restoration Hardware and 
dark chocolate walls in Sherwin Williams
Well Bred Brown ...

New York, New York, has been an excellent general contractor
and lots of fun to work with... never a dull moment:)

There's so much more to show you... almost every room
in the house, so stay tuned for more.

Fingers crossed this kitchen is finished soon!!!!

Until next time,
