Magnetic Artwork

motifo_refirgeratorA while ago I wrote about how you can add some whimsy and color to your kitchen with the top-mount refrigerators from Amana.  Now you can achieve new flair using your existing refrigerator with a magnetic artwork kit from Motifo 

One pack of 1296 magnetic tiles contains six colour-coded designs  for creating your own masterpiece or you can use the Motifo templates to make portraits of Audrey Hepburn, Muhammad Ali, Pink or Yoda to name a few.

A pack costs $79.95 from motifo.com, where you can also download the new design templates regularly added to the site.

Obviously you can use these anywhere they will stick.  I think they could be used to liven up a plain steel entry door or bank of filing cabinets.

Real Housewives Redo

Traditional Home has an on-line spread showing the home of Jill Zarin, of Real Housewives of NYC  fame.  The new color choices are fresh.  I love the dining room’s new light and bright feel. 

The kitchen cabinets were painted white with wallpaper used on the flat panels of the upper cabinets.  The flooring and countertops were not changed. Mirrored backsplash helps to open up the tight space.  You can see the whole spread with before photos here.
