I can’t tell you how jazzed I am to see no granite. Granite has become some kind of standard as to what makes a “nice” kitchen. It chips, it’s tough to clean, and everyone seems to choose the same color palette. Really? People-you can do better.
This house has Zodiaq and I got the shivers when I saw it. I kinda had to control my squeeling reflex because other people were around. This is not really in the hands of the designer, but a very nice surprise nevertheless.
This designer has used a beautiful color palette and the cohesiveness is very impressive. Only 1 misstep, but it’s one of my pet peeves. Those damn pictures in the hall. In spite of this, it gets a straight-up A.
Two videos because I’m not that great. Watch, enjoy. Oh, and I figured out how to put speech bubbles in the videos. More opinionated commentary for you!!
Oh god the risers on the stairs make me swoon.
The grouping of pictures below is one of the things that makes me want to stab myself. There is no circumstance where clusters of pictures like this is acceptable. They’re never hung straight and the pictures themselves are always slightly skewed. That drives me nuts. Just put something else there.
See those pictures?? Just awful.
Texture is always good. I enjoyed this little vignette in the spare bedroom.
The lighting in this house was mostly uninspired, but there are some other details that offset that.
Wait-I totally take that back. If the lighting isn’t good, it gets a full letter downgrade. So it gets a B. Actually, a B-. The grade is fair, mostly because of the sexy beast of a sofa and the stairs. Great use of turquoise, though. You get the point, but you aren’t overwhelmed with it. As Martha would say – It’s a good thing.
