I am so surprised and delighted to say that we were awarded the Readers Choice award for product design last night at @cottagesgardens New York IDAs. I was tremendously humbled by the talent and incredible finalist projects—
and I just designed a sink(yay me!)😂 But I want to say thank you to the judges and to cottages and gardens for offering the readers choice award which gives small innovations like this a platform to be noticed.
This was a very last minute decision to enter. Photos taken on my iPhone... And this sink in the image is a prototype. (I will have images soon with cutting boards offered!). But there was so much interest among my own client base that I didn’t want to wait to get it out there. I sort of subscribed to Gretchen Rubin’s mantra “don’t let perfect be the enemy of the good”. So if you were wondering why I am using an iPhone photo, blame Gretchen!
So just a quick info-mercial on the sink!! It wasn’t so much born out of a client’s desire to get the dish drainer off the countertop but more MINE. I was so tired of visiting clients AFTER their renovation and seeing the dish rack still on the countertop that I proposed to a client that if I designed her a sink that had a big wash up area and also a lowered platform for the dish rack, would she go for that? And she said “absolutely”. So that’s where it began. So I took a picture of it when it was done and I plopped it on Instagram. And there was so much interest among clients and instagrammers that now I will be offering it on my website! Until we get the e-commerce up and rolling, there will be a form on the site for inquiries.

😍 It’s a kitchen & it’s Friday! You can still have a bright kitchen with dark cabinets! I’ve brightened this kitchen with light colored floors, walls, doors, countertops, the window treatments, and the backsplash! So, do you love light cabinets or dark cabinets?
We just finished this kitchen today! Scroll through to see the before and after photos. It’s so fun! 😆I love when a client has a vision and they hire us to bring it to life. What did Free Spirit Designs do? We helped choose the color to refinish Cabinets, Scott did an amazing job refinishing these while battling the love bugs and the weather. When we started removing doors and drawer faces we also suggested removing the bottom curved railing on cabinets and rounded cabinets by stove to give it a more updated look. Love the impact that little change made. We installed the tile, did wall repairs, some touch up painting, installed the hardware (top cabinets still need hardware it just wasn’t here yet but I couldn’t wait to share this project with you.) Lastly the statement hood. 😍My amazing dad @heinrichswoodandcanvas built that incredible piece in 2 days. It’s a one of a kind for sure! The clients were thrilled and that’s why we do what we do! We got this job wrapped up just in time for this sweet family to host some friends in their new home. Thank you for trusting us with this project Rodney and Nicole. Look forward to our next job together.
Una cucina così non l’avete mai vista. Non la troverete esposta nei negozi o sui cataloghi. Sì, perché questa cucina nasce direttamente dalle nostre menti e dalle nostre mani. La cucina ricorda un po’ i favolosi appartamenti visti su @westwing.it o quelli che si possono osservare sfogliando riviste patinate, dal gusto un po’ retrò, tanto in voga ora.
Dagli sportelli laccati grigio chiaro alle maniglie sottili e lineari, l’accostamento che inizialmente aveva destato inizialmente non pochi dubbi, all’apparenza un po’ improbabile, donava all’insieme un’eleganza senza tempo.
Il contrasto dell’elemento laccato in una cucina dai particolari vintage era nato come una scommessa.
Stentavo a sentire mia, una delle tante cucine proposte dei siti e dei cataloghi: troppo bianca, troppo scura, troppo colorata, troppo pesante con le cornici e le riseghe ornamentali, troppo semplice o banale.
Troppo diversa da come me l’ero immaginata. Così pensai che fosse l’ora di cambiare. Di combinare elementi diversi, colori e cromie ardite e di creare qualcosa di completamente nostro. In tutto e per tutto. Funzionale in ogni dettaglio, dai cassetti alla penisola, tutto rispondeva a quell’idea di massima funzionalismo è svedese tanto agognata: la #hygge .
Che indica i mobili #Ikea come scarsi e di bassa qualità, di Ikea non ci ha capito niente. Non state acquistando un mobile qualunque. State acquistando un oggetto rivoluzionario. Per la prima volta è possibile acquistare un mobile ed essere guidati nella composizione come si farebbe con un bambino.
Attraverso i disegni.
Sì perché il disegno essendo esso stesso un linguaggio universale, non ha bisogno di ulteriori spiegazioni.
Pochi attrezzi in più ed il gioco è fatto.
Siete pronti a vivere l’esperienza più bella: CREARE.
This stunning in-frame Urban kitchen, demonstrates creativity with design for compact kitchens. Finished in 2 beautiful colours, ‘Blue Thistle’ & ‘Heron Grey’, with stools finished in ‘Yellow Gold’. Completing this truly modern, versatile kitchen are some fantastic, must-have Miele appliances. #johnlewisofhungerford

Topic of the day: Open Concept ‼️We all know that open concept has been the go-to for many, many years now. Instead of the kitchen being hidden, it has become the heart of the home where people gather and mingle. What can open concept cost you? Well, a major factor impacting the price is determined by whether or not walls are load bearing. In this case, the walls were load bearing, so columns were kept to keep within budget. Here’s an idea of the cost difference:
1: Non-load-bearing wall removal from $300-$1000
2: Load-Bearing 1 story wall removal from $1200-$3000
3: Load-Bearing with multi-story from $3200-$10,000+
Quite the difference & can definitely significantly impact a budget. There is always a cost-benefit analysis to removing the wall but I think the columns were placed nicely in the design here by @crestwoodventures#kitchendesign#kitchensofinstagram#kitchenremodel#kitchenrenovation#kitchenreno#kitchenupdate#kitcheninspo

Opening up the bricked windows and doors in the back of our New York showroom was such a wow moment, it transformed a dark and fairly dingy space into somewhere so wonderfully welcoming and light - what an ideal spot for our potting shed. This is a very tactile display, as soon as you step into it you just want to run your hands along the bandsawn cupboards, the original brick wall, the smooth mottled copper, even the terracotta floor! We have kept things simple and rustic and so very different to our other displays, it really is a little hidden gem right at the back of our city showroom. #deVOLKitchens
How big is too big for a butler's pantry? When it looks like this nothing can be too big! 😍 #tbt to @biancaandcarla butler's pantry from last season of @theblock. We loved this sexy and sophisticated space which offered an abundance of storage and benchtop preparation zones, as well as integrated appliances. What's not to love?! We have plenty more butler's pantry inspiration in our latest kitchen catalogue. Ready for you to download on our website today! #kitcheninspiration
