Whether it’s simply a place for a table lamp, clock radio and water glass or it houses books, earplugs and remote controls, the nightstand is an essential piece in every bedroom. From modern to traditional, Hollywood Regency to transitional, I’ve rounded up a variety of beautiful nightstands and bedside tables in an Ideabook on Houzz. My favorite designs include ones with drawers. There’s nothing better than stylish nightstands with storage options for keeping a bedroom neat and clutter free!

California Adventure Park at Sunset #disneyland #mickeymouse

On a personal note, it’s been quite the week! We took a last minute family vacation to Disneyland (aka the happiest place on earth). It had been a few years since our last visit with Mickey, so the kids were over the moon to say the least. This time around was extra special too because we could all ride California Screaming together. Such a thrill for my youngest. I’ve posted a few pictures of the trip on Instagram, but wanted to share my favorite taken in the early evening at the California Adventure Park (above).

Happy Friday!

Kitchen Pantry Ideas

gray butler's pantry #kitchens

A beautiful, functional butler’s pantry. It’s a space most of us only dream of having. While not all homes have the space or layout for a large butler’s pantry, most kitchens can incorporate a pantry. They can be designed in a variety of ways and sizes. Some are located in a side closet and separated by a door, while others are in a hallway just off the kitchen. One of my favorite pantry style is built-in and a central part of the kitchen itself.

Here are just a few kitchen pantry ideas …

This built-in pantry by Brayer Design has the look and feel of a refrigerator. Love the racks on the cabinet door for spices and smaller items.

Here is a similar pantry by Leslie Ann Abbott that is flush with the refrigeration units.

The space underneath a stairwell sometimes goes unused. In this kitchen by Mark Williams Design Associates a clever and very stylish pantry is created giving a little more storage.

Spotted on Pinterest, I love this pantry with arched cabinetry doors. Makes a lovely architectural statement.

A hallway can also be a great place for a pantry. Love this one by Karen Swanson. The colorful cabinetry and patterned wallpaper is so playful next to the all white kitchen.

Inspired? Me too.

happy decorating,

Fresh + Chic Work Spaces

As my own home renovation goes into full swing, I’m finding it harder and harder to keep everything organized. I have to admit it drives me a little crazy to not have spot for everything, but I know it’s for a short period of time. I also think it’s healthy for me to have to let go a little. One small area I’m trying to keep organized is my work space. Although that’s been a struggle to keep neat too! So in the spirit of organized desks, I’m sharing a few fresh and chic work spaces captured by photographer, Hannah Blackmore.

Introducing Dekton by Cosentino :: Revolutionary New Surface

Dekton kitchen countertop

One of the highlights of touring KBIS with #BlogTourVegas last month was discovering new and innovative products. One such product is Cosentino’s newly launched ultra-compact surface called Dekton. Cosentino, an industry leader in quartz, natural stone and architectural surfaces may be best known for their popular Silestone products, but was buzzing about their new revolutionary product. Dekton is a highly innovative surface that can be used both indoors and out. By leveraging a proprietary technology that mimics the metamorphic change that rocks and stone undergo in nature over thousands of years, Dekton embodies extreme strength and durability. Dekton’s advanced technical properties provide UV and thermal shock resistance, superior strength, high resistance to impact, scratches and abrasion and low water absorption. This product is really ground breaking and can be used in so many applications beyond kitchens and bathrooms – imagine Dekton used for high-traffic flooring, exterior facades and pool surrounds to name a few.

Dekton surfaces - outdoor pool and patio

Produced in large format slabs, measuring approximately 12″ x 56″ inches and three thicknesses (1.2 cm, 2 cm and 3 cm), Dekton allows flexibility for large-scale applications as seen in the poolside patio and the building facade below.

Currently, Dekton is available in three collections – Solid, Natural and Tech – with thirteen white, grey, black and natural stone hues and in three polished, matte, wood and slate finishes. In the future, the collection will expand to include a wide range of innovative aesthetics including rust, concrete and oxidized metal as well as a variety of textures, such as rippled, leather, denim, brushed and coated. Stay tuned!

happy decorating,
