  • Homemade dining room, Our dining room originally had a French country feel with traditional picture frame chair rail moulding. We both enjoy contemporary shaker style so we took on the project of constructing our own molding to give height and volume (seen here). We did not just stop at the molding we made a custom picnic style dining room table that is contrasted with steel legs for contrast. To top the whole look off we made our own zebra wood doom chandler to complement our chairs., Dining Rooms Design

  • Tuscan relaxed dining room , The room when we moved into the house was a blue color.  We finished the living room and decided with all the muted walls in the house we wanted one room with bolder colors.  I think it is a tuscan kind of room I guess. We owned the furniture and were not planning to replace it yet so we wanted the ladderback chairs and style of the furniture to make sense.  This room makeover cost less than $200. New chandelier, paint, mirror, pictures, and repurposed drapes.  Look at the living room pictures to see the flow of the two rooms.  I need a center piece idea for the dining table.

  • Renovated Florida Cottage Kitchen, Just finished renovating the kitchen in my 1946 Florida cottage.  By taking down the wall between the original kitchen and dining room the kitchen functions so much better. Plus it feels like I added square footage to the house. Yet I tried to design the new kitchen in keeping with the vintage 40's house. , Kitchens Design

  • Condo Kitchen Redo - Finally Finished!, We bought our condo in 2006, with the expectation that we would someday need to redo the kitchen (it was hideous).  We finally redid it this spring so we could enjoy it for the next few years before we outgrow the space.  We tried to keep it inline with the rest of the condo (pretty traditional), but made sure to use clean lines to keep it contemporary.  We are still finalizing a few things, so any comments would be much appreciated!  The before pics are posted toward the end so you can see what we had to deal with :), Kitchens Design

  • Something's Gotta Give Inspired Kitchen, We built what was supposed to be our "dream house" in 2006-07, but I was designing the kitchen in my mind for years before that. I won't go into the gory details, but suffice to say we had a LOT of problems, many still outstanding, and it's likely the house may never be worth what we ended up paying for it, thanks to a crooked/incompetent contractor and other woes. 

On the bright side, though it's not perfect, it's still pretty comfy, especially if you don't look too closely, and it's a lot nicer than any house I ever thought I'd live in, even in my wildest imagination. It wasn't that long ago that I was making Thanksgiving dinner for 12 in a tiny apartment with a 20-year-old coil top stove and 3 sq. inches of counter space, so I do know how very, very lucky I am.

I did all the design, from basic floor plan to decorating, myself, so blame me if you hate it. And, no, not everything is exactly as I'd like it, but the money tree didn't take root, so I work with what I have, including a lot of flat pack furniture. I was inspired by, among other things, the Hampton's beach house in the movie Something's Gotta Give, even though we're nowhere near the water, unfortunately. I guess I'd call my overall "look" cottage beach house via Pottery Barn.

To answer the most frequently asked question ... I'm an avid cook and baker and often feed a crowd so, yes, I really do use all those ovens. There are five, in case you're counting: two electric, one gas, a convection/steam oven and an Advantium.

Thanks to all who have taken the time to share comments, and a special thank you for all those folks who shared their own kitchen pictures, many of which inspired me. I am just trying to return the favor.

  • Crisp & clean with a touch of green, We recently remodeled the original kitchen in our 1980's ranch house.  Luckily, it had "good bones"--large kitchen/family room area, so no expansion was necessary and no walls needed to be removed. The old kitchen was not very functional, primarly because the large cooktop on the island left only 12 inches of countertop around it, so I was limited to using one small counter area for prepping, baking, etc. After cooking in it for almost three years and taking mental notes on how to make it better, we embarked on the big remodel.  Now it is a beautiful, clean space that several people can work in comfortably, and it is great for entertaining thanks to flip flopping a desk and bar area.  As part of the remodel, we replaced a bookcase that was in the adjacent family room and redid the fireplace as well, using elements from the kitchen to pull it all together.  Enduring a remodel with two young kids was not easy, but now this is a beautiful space my whole family enjoys spending time in, so that makes it all worth it!, Kitchens Design
