5 Things I Can’t Shake:
Article has quickly become my go-to for affordable furniture pieces that are still well made. I’ve always thought of Article as a decorator’s secret, but they are quickly becoming mainstream and well known. Recently a friend who in no way is connected or interested in the decorating/design world asked if I had ever heard of Article/what I think about their pieces. I took that as my cue that Article is no longer a secret.
2. Greige Kitchens
Really just greige anything, I love it all. It wasn’t too long ago that beige was completely ruled out and deemed “dated” in the decorating world, so I get that it might seem too soon for greige to be relevant again. But man, how can you not love it after seeing the above kitchen?? Thoughts on greige?
3. Wood to Tile Flooring Transitions
Such a tricky concept, but all of the above spaces pulled it off so well. Transitioning wood flooring to tile or anything other than wood can be abrupt and a total eye sore, so how do you pull it off? I think what the above spaces have in common is that all of the transitions feel very intentional. Speaking of flooring in the kitchen….. all of the spaces above have wood flooring stopping in the kitchen. Thoughts on continuing engineered hardwoods into the kitchen? I’m totally for it. Don’t think I would be brave enough to do it in the bathroom, but I am for it in the kitchen.
I’m always on the hunt for a practical natural fiber rug that is still PRETTY. This one reminds me of the one I used in my parents’ living room.
5. Kitchen Open Shelving…Here to Stay?
Can you tell I have kitchens on my mind? We are in the process of buying our first home, and I can’t help but go there (read: dream kitchen). Thoughts on open shelving in the kitchen? Is it a trend or here to stay? I personally love the concept and how it feels so open and light, but I know some think it’s not practical.
