To show you how you can get this stylish look, I put together some black and white material boards for the living room, bedroom, and dining room. Take these as simple guidelines to create your own chic space.

For this living room, I decided to put the emphasize more on the black elements, with the sofa in bright white to create balance (since it is the largest piece of furniture).

This bedroom features a good mix of black and white elements to create a luxurious space. Depending on which shade you want to highlight, you can also swap out some of the black pieces for white ones. You want to remember to have a good mix of both colors.

Black and white can read very modern, but when choosing furniture and accessories that have classic lines, you achieve this look while still maintaining a traditional aesthetic.

HGTV’s “House Hunters Renovation” episode 4

Last Sunday HGTV aired a new episode of “House Hunters Renovation” that I was so honored to work on!! It was an absolute pleasure working with the HGTV team and of course the wonderful homeowners, Bill and Meredith, on this kitchen renovation! You guys all made it such a blast and I will always remember how great the experience was!

For some of you looking for a few snap shots, take a look below for a couple before and after images of the kitchen renovation…

This kitchen needed some major color and updating! After getting an idea of what Bill and Meredith were looking for in their kitchen… I had a plan! Below is the sketch for my concept on the kitchen design.

By choosing warmer color tones in walnut and grey, the kitchen came to life. Adding a colorful glass and slate back splash tile gave a contemporary touch especially since I decided to install it vertically instead of horizontal!! Matched with the quartz counter tops for the island and main kitchen, along with industrial details like the reclaimed wood mirror and swivel bar stools, this kitchen got its masculine vibe. And who could forget the beautiful accent wallpaper in the dining area that tied the theme together!

October’s Color of the Month

With winter approaching, deep rich colors are emerging in design. This season blue is dominating the industry. Blues ranging from royal to navy are being seen in a variety of products such as paints, textiles, and accessories. Even with the chilly weather outside, these blues are far from icy. Rich blue tones are both relaxing and, although a “cool color,” can create a very cozy environment. For example,

Crate and Barrel Lago Table Lamp
Crate and Barrel’s Lago Table Lamp is a great way to add quick color to a space. Its rich blue tone is perfect for this month’s color trend.

Going Further, these rich blues make fantastic wall colors. This season, navy has become a very popular choice.

It’s easy to add a touch of color to a space without making drastic or expensive changes. Anything from a new table lamp, a new coat of paint, or a new area rug can create a big difference. These beautiful blues are a fantastic touch to any home, and can live through any season.
