What I'm Completely Obsessed With

It’s called Stilla and it’s not cosmetics you would find a Sephora or Ulta.

Stilla is paneling in tempered glass by Joel Berman Glass Studios. It comes in 3 thicknesses, 1/4″, 3/8″ and 5/8″ in a 4″ high repeating pattern with  3-dimensional texture. The panel is 53″ w and 108″ h and can be ordered curved, notched or drilled.

I think it is gorgeous and know of many, many places I’d like to use it.

Around the Web

white industrial kitchenAs I was strolling the world wide web this past week I found some great items I thought I’d share starting with this incredible white kitchen in a Barn-style home in Sag Harbour from Emma and her great Blog White and Wander.

I love the commercial-style faucet and industrial stainless steel surfaces paired with the clean white shelving filled with glasses and clay pitchers.  Check out her other posts filled with lost of interior goodness.

The Laurel Hedges has a fun post that tells of the little known secret that a powerful exhaust fan in a couple’s bathroom lowers the chance of divorce.  Millie blogs to get away from the men in her life ( she has 5 sons!) and her posts are refreshing and filled with wonderful little gems.

Small kitchens are hard to design because they still have to have all the appliances found in larger kitchens and at least a little storage.  I think Chris Welsh did a fabulous job on this alcove kitchen featured on Alicia B. Designs with her tips on how to maximise small kitchen space.

If you have missed the magazine Domino then you will love the new online magazine, Lonny.  Eddie Ross introduced me to the new publication on his blog.  His beautiful farmhouse has a fabulous spread in the 200 or so page publication.  I love what he and his partner did with their butler’s pantry. Everything is beautifully organized and very accessible.

Blogging Updates

kitchen studio of naples helloHere’s a little update on some of things I have been doing.

Ask Ann: Read about Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report 2008-09.  Despite the down market, maintenance-related projects and moderately priced upgrades are providing stable paybacks to homeowners.

KB+B Online: With so many materials and styles to choose from, selecting the best backsplash can be confusing. Read about the many material choices and their pros and cons.

Gold Notes: Read about new appliance trends for 2009.

Sneak Peak: I have a new page up that will give my online readers a sneak peak at my new kitchen and bath studio.  It’s been a long time coming so I am very excited.
