If you are remodeling your Kitchen, or just dreaming about it, a granite waterfall counter top is a very modern and super chic way to add a little bit of glam.  I personally, am just dreaming about remodeling but this is what I would want!  I just love how the granite “falls” over the side of the island, it adds such great texture and creates a unique focal point to the space!

I really love how the same granite used on the island is also used as the backsplash on the wall under the cabinets.  I actually wrote a post on my “Do’s and Don’ts when Selecting a Kitchen Backsplash” back in 2012 that talks about this!

What do you think?  A unique application like this, or the classic granite counter top slab?

So back in June I posted about bold front doors painted in fun colors (you can find the post here), so I thought it would be appropriate to post about INTERIOR front door colors this time!  Of course, a colorful exterior color is visible to anyone who passes by your home, but the interior color can be so much more personal since only you can see it.  It also, most likely, will dictate the color palette throughout the rest of your home too!

Here are some very colorful, and beautifully designed Foyers that start with the front door.

What does your front door color say about you?  If you could change your color, what would it be?

Since it has been in the 90’s here in DC this week, all I have been dreaming about is a sitting on a beach with a nice cool breeze and water to jump into!  Well I can dream, right?

 

Well if I could go to the beach, I would definitely want one of these bright and fun Tiffany Blue bathing suits!!

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful dads out there!  In honor of you today, here is an amazing “Man Cave” for you to escape to.

 

 

I love the dark paint with the light wood and cream accents, very sexy and sophisticated.  The antler accents on the coffee table add a strong masculine touch, and what says “manly” more than black leather?

Who says a “Man Cave” has to feel like a college fraternity house with neon beer signs and football posters hung on the wall?  It doesn’t!!

What better way to add a little excitement to your curb appeal than to make a statement with a bold front door?!  A fresh coat of paint in a bright and unexpected color is an inexpensive way to add a little life to your home’s facade.  Here are some of my favorite colors, deliciously transferred onto front doors…

What color would you paint your front door?  Better yet, what does your front door say about you?

Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day!Happy Memorial Day!  I first want to sincerely thank our US Military and our fallen for serving, and continuing to serve, our country and protecting our freedom.

 

I am lucky enough to live in our Nation’s Capital and to be amongst the the amazing monuments and memorials that DC has built.  These are some of my favorite places to see!

Agates!

I have noticed an abundance lately of agate accessories!  These really take me back to my childhood growing up in Tucson, AZ when my family would take trips to museums and I would always be mesmerized by the little gems in the gift shops.  The different shapes, colors, and shimmers really caught my attention, “isn’t Nature amazing?” my mom always say.

Needless to say, I am really excited that these geological rocks have emerged from the Science classrooms into our homes!  Not only do they add some color, but can be functional as well!  Take a look…
