This kitchen is absolutely delicious!!! Bin pulls, and cabinet feet and flush mounts...Oh my! I can't stop staring at it, so much so, that I have moved it to my desktop for ease of opening just to gaze at between task changes. This little gem is located in a beautiful home in the prestigious Highland Park neighborhood of Dallas. I could seriously lick the marble it is so yummy. I don't know if it is Calcutta or Carrera but it is just gorgeous!!! Notice the juxtaposition of the clean lines and pure white color scheme with the rustic antique lanterns over the island. This works so beautifully. Every room should have just a little patina. I think that just a little age gives a space so much depth. Another element to this kitchen, that is so aesthetically pleasing, is the way that the arched window is mimicked over the cooktop. This creates symmetry but isn't boring.
I'm going to have a white kitchen some day. This kitchen has definitely moved up on my inspiration list.

Last night I dreamt that a large order of furniture for a client arrived and it was really small....I couldn't even sit in it...as small as playhouse furniture! Really scary :-) I imagine I dreamed this because on Sunday nights my mind is generally filled with a mental to-do list of all that I need to take care of on Monday, what orders are coming in that week, etc. Ironically, I usually look at design magazines to relax...this sounds counterintuitive, no? There is just something about those glossy images of beautiful rooms that makes me happy. I missed my magazine ritual last night because I was traveling home from a weekend in Dallas. However, I had a wonderful and much needed weekend with my family and girlfriends. I miss everyone so much. San Antonio isn't quite home yet, but it's growin' on me. This week I'm looking forward to getting a little more settled in our house and working on some new clients, some existing clients and some fun new projects.
Have a great week!

My sister-in-law, Jane, and I.
I mean, seriously?! Does it get any more beautiful than this?!...Good thing my camera was glued to my eye the whole trip, I was able to snap this as these newlyweds just strolled by...
