Modern Kitchen Project

We recently updated a kitchen. To keep the cost down, we are leaving the countertop and appliances as is. We replaced the flooring, added a backsplash and painted the cabinets white. This is what the kitchen looked like before... after

New JCP Home

I got a chance to pop in to the new and improved JCP home to check out the collaboration they made with Jonathan Adler, Martha Stewart and Michael Graves. They are not completely done. But most of the products seen online are now available at the store. I took these pictures with my blackberry phone. Plus the lighting in the store are not very good. So the pictures don't do the justice. They look better in person.

Laura's Telephone Chair

Laura just recently shared a before and after picture of a telephone chair she restored using SS Mum fabric and this is what she said,

"I purchased a piece of your mum fabric over the summer and just wanted to share the finished product.  It's a family piece; vintage telephone table that has been refinished due to cigarette smoke in the wood and a need for new reupholstering.  Your fabric added the perfect touch.  thanks so much! And I love that you are sustainable!"

Thanks Laura for sharing!

Jim Thompson Fabric

My sis-in-law gave me this beautiful Jim Thompson silk butterfly pillow cover over the holiday and Mila claimed it right away. "For my room!" she said. It goes very well with her new bedding and SS Raindrops pillow. 

Jim Thomspon produces the most beautiful silk and fabric. Do you know he also carry children's clothing line? Their fabric is very soft. The prints are super fun and colorful. Their elephant print is their signature. I was hoping they are available in the US. 

Here are some chairs upholstered using Jim Thomspon fabric.

Love and Thanks

I was browsing through the two & from: Valentine edition this morning and came across this print from SS Print Shop
I really like her version of the Love print. I was hoping it comes in different colors. These are my favorites too.

Also, this week I got an email saying I've been selected by the Houzz community as winner of their 2013 "Best of Houzz' awards in Customer Satisfaction category. Thank you Houzz!

Mila's Abstract Art

While most young girls like pink and purple, Mila's favorite color is Green! She has been asking to repaint her room green or replacing the headboard green or how about just the button on the headboard. Well, I told her that we can add green colors to her room in form of artworks and objects for her built-ins. So I have been saving these finger painting arts she did a while back and I got a chance to purchase these green Ikea frames over the weekend. She helped me putting them up and to see that huge smile on her face priceless.

When I look at this London based designer, Lee Broom's product designs, they remind me of Jaime Hayon's, my all time favorite designer. With his background in Fashion, his design is edgy and unique. These are my favorites...
