"Don't Fall Off Your Chair"

Can you believe it, I'm actually writing a post!  I want to thank all of you for sticking around. Hopefully it will be worth the wait.

Kitchen renovations seem to be the rave right now. I have just finished my first and am now working on two more.  Needless to say, kitchens have been on my mind a lot and I love it. I built my house about 10 years ago and I'm realizing that I definitely did not think about my kitchen enough. Like most people, the cost of building an entire house was so overwhelming and expensive that I went with neutral basics and decided my accents would make it special. Don't get me wrong, that is the advice I would still give, but when you have looked at so many wonderful kitchens and worked out ways to get a look for less, it makes me wish I would of paid more attention.

The internet sure makes finding inspiration easy. Below are a few of my favorites which I found on Houzz.com. One of them I am going to use as the inspiration for my next renovation. I would love to hear what your favorite is!

Choice #1 Urban Chic

Choice #2 Cottage Cute

Choice #3 Traditional Flair

Choice #4 Rustic Bliss

Choice #5 French Country

Everything I do in design always seems to come in three's. Therefore, when I look at a room for inspiration, I try to find three key elements that I feel make the room. I take those three "must have" touches and then build around them. In doing so, it allows you to get the feel of your inspirational room with out the big ticket cost.  

Let me know if my 'Rule of Three" works for you!

Take Care,
