White Kitchens

What is more timeless than the classic white kitchen? Elegantly chic, modern and oh so beautiful! White kitchens have a clean and inviting nature about them that is undeniable and the space always feels fresh and new.

Here are a few of the many great qualities of using white in your kitchen: It is a utilitarian shade that allows you to easily coordinate your other elements such as counter tops, back splash, wall color and accessories. It reflects light, making your entire space feel much brighter. So if you have a space that is not well lit and electrical work is not an option, then white is your go-to color. It makes any color that's paired with it look like a million bucks. Most importantly, the end results look amazing and you will absolutely fall in love with your kitchen.

Here are some of our favorites:

Splash of Color

One of the easiest and most pocket-friendly ways to add a quick change to your home is with the use of paint. Adding color to your existing white walls will transform your space without breaking your piggy bank. Always test out several shades of your fave color on the wall before committing. Lighting plays a big role in the way the paint will look in your space so be sure to view your samples in both natural and artificial light, and at different times of the day.

Tile: Tile is a more permanent way of adding color, but it adds another dimension to your otherwise flat walls. Try adding a wall of tile in a smaller space, like a powder bathroom to get more bang for your buck. Glass decorative tiles are on the hot list right now and come in a variety of patterns, sizes and colors. Think outside of the box, mix and match and have fun!

Spoof up your Bachelorette party!

Recently, I was asked to be in a bridal show to give bridesmaids fun ways to throw a little design in the mix of a bachelorette party. So ladies hopefully these ideas will get your creative juices flowing for your next bachelorette party you plan.

I came across these mannequins and thought these would be perfect for the party. Take two mannequins; spray paint, and some type of flat surface to create a cute table that can display featured drinks of the night or h'orsdeurves. Dress the mannequins to your desire and you have created a fun element to the party.

When it comes to dinner here are some cute ideas to set your table up with. Use handcuffs for napkin rings with whips and for centerpieces I used chains and feathers to keep those fun bachelorette ideas. Remember when planning parties there are fun creative things you can do to make it unforgettable, just don’t forget to think out of the box!
