Kitchen Trends 2019: Dark and Moody Vibes

This is a busy time of year for my business - things typically are a little slow after Christmas into February and then they pick up just in time for warmer weather.  Unlike other years, I've had quite a few clients booked well in advance for starting this spring and summer, which is great.

Before & After: Sunlight in a Small, Vintage Style, White Kitchen

I am home today awaiting what's called a "Bomb Cyclone" which is a rare weather phenomenon that I had never heard of up until yesterday.  I feel incredibly skeptical, but maybe that's how Floridians and other feel when forecasters warn of a hurricane and they look outside and see a little rain.  This Bomb Cyclone… Continue reading Before & After: Sunlight in a Small, Vintage Style, White Kitchen

Kitchen Design Trends for 2019

Happy last week of January!  I'm writing this on Monday which, to refresh your memory, is the day when forecasters predicted 1-3" of snow in town (No big deal!  Light snowfall!

Denver Kitchens: A Year in Review (Part 2)

We have two more months of winter left and yet every time I hear birds chirping I nod sagely to myself and think:  Ah!  Spring is almost here!  I always forget about the slog of January and February.  I feel optimistic about this year even though (or maybe because) I ended last year in a… Continue reading Denver Kitchens: A Year in Review (Part 2)

Un-Kitchening the Kitchen: 7 Ways to Hide a Kitchen Hood

When I think about the past few years of kitchen design, the overarching trend can be summed up with the following question: "How can I make my kitchen not look like a kitchen?"  I believe this to be true partly because of the extreme popularity of open kitchens.  When your kitchen is wide open to… Continue reading Un-Kitchening the Kitchen: 7 Ways to Hide a Kitchen Hood

Before and After: An 80’s Home Turns Rustic Refined in Littleton, Colorado

When I first saw this home, it was a 1980's suburban dream.  Except it was 37 years later and now we all know the good and the bad that comes with living in the suburbs and frequently the word "dream" is excised from that slogan.   (You can see more of this renovated, Littleton, Colorado… Continue reading Before and After: An 80’s Home Turns Rustic Refined in Littleton, Colorado
