Another bit of ongoing visual interior inspiration today.  731contempkit2

clean open… the clear glass cabinet door inserts, horizontally placed cabinetry drawer pulls, thick square edge detailed island counter top, artistic ceramic square tiled backsplace, and simple modern decor.

parsons style vanity, matte porcelain brick sized backsplash tiles in chocolate with aligned joints, simple chartreuse accents, crisp and quietly appealing.


sleek tiled flooring, polished inset niche fit with up and down lit sconce, horizontal large rectangular tiled walls, sleek ebony flat panel cabinetry.

appreciate the light and airy effect of sea-glass ceramic glazed brick sized tiles with staggered joints for fresh fireplace surround redo, attractive, built in mirror, and accents, simple, rich hues and organic textures/materials.  appreciate the gallery style photography display (artwork could have been a bit larger in scale).


balanced combination of materials and appreciate the wood flooring direction, suspended lighting, exposed steel beams, and generous natural light afforded from the large windows.


love the juxtaposition of the large scale fireplace draped in small slate/limestone (probably porcelain derivative) slithers for the fireplace surround and return, the low profile horizontal line fire insert and classic Knoll Barcelona chair.

I hope you are having a lovely week.  The weather has been so amazingly mild and enjoyable of late. Boyfriend and I spent the weekend organizing and cleaning our ever-challenging garage space.  We surprised AJ with a new big girl bed, and a special Diego potty seat for G.  We’re formally celebrating Arlise’ birthday this weekend, so my parents are coming to town and we are bound to have a wonderful celebration with our family and a few of her friends.  I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to. 

Peace :)

    I love coming to your site. The images always inspire me and what I wouldn’t do for that fireplace……….
    Enjoy your weekend with the family. Enjoy that mild weather! What I wouldn’t do for a day under 100 degrees~

    INCREDIBLE, my friend. I know I always say that, but OH MY WORD, I’m in love with that spring green colored kitchen. Awesome! :)

    Love all the images. One day, one day I will have an amazing steam shower, with amazing tiles, and an amazingly big bench that seats two with legs reclined, or four for socializing – like Sex & The City. That will be my respite for myself, for me and another, and for good girlfriends who need a place to wind down – even if it’s only for 10-15 minutes. One day!

    Please… share pictures of AJs room when you get a chance. I hope you have a great celebration with her and all the family!
