I had the pleasure of joining the Kitchen and Bath Tribe Chat hosted by Marble Institute the other day. The topic; Designing with Natural Materials. These chats are fun, but also very educational and informative for remodeling and home design. For example a maintenance tip when using natural stone; avoid the 3 As – acid, ammonia and alcohol. I would have never known these three are not good for natural stone.
Another tip is what’s trending! A popular choice these days is a full slab of natural stone for a backsplash instead of tile. Gorgeous and smart, because a solid piece for a backsplash is a lot easier to clean than tile. Am I right or am I right?! Look at this seamless look from Discover Marble – I am in love.
More ideas include American Stonecraft transforming reclaimed fieldstone into a line of slabs for serving, cooking and tabletop accessories. Brilliant and functional!
Then there was this by Brasigran. It’s called Blue Agata – mesmerizing and I would sleep in this kitchen. Seriously, come on… Why must you torture me like this?
There is so much more to see and learn in these chats. Scrolling through the hashtag #KBTribeChat is like looking through a catalog, but with tips and tricks of the best and what’s best for you. Go on – See for yourself!
High Point Market is coming and if you are an interior designer or love home decor and furnishings then you know what that means! It’s 5 days of thousands and thousands of square feet featuring new designs and ideas for the furnishing industry.
A few weeks ago there was a product preview of some of the items coming to spring market. Sometimes a few of them jump out at me and I can’t help but gaze lovingly while imagining the piece somewhere in my home. The following were two of my favorites from the preview –
This coffee table by Bennett Galleries is the epitome of pure craftsmanship and talent.
The simplicity of this table with drawers combined with the hand inlay design accents in walnut, chestnut, ash and ebonized wood make this a winner. When function and style come together, that is a favorite for this gal!
Here is another piece I cannot stop staring at – a credenza by John Richard.
The texture on this piece is mesmerizing. I love the contemporary feel of the sleek black lines mixed with the gold hardware giving it a somewhat retro feel. I wonder what it would look like with silver?
One day maybe I’ll have the opportunity to attend High Point Market, but for now I am looking forward to seeing the social media feeds light up with thedesigns!
