Links for Your Weekend

I’m taking a little break from the Decorating UNschool posts today to share a few links from around the web I’ve enjoyed recently.

I’m currently working on a kitchen remodel with a client and its been so fun picking out finishes and paint colors with her.  We want a modern and simple look on the main cabinets (white Shaker style doors) but something different for the island.  While the rest of this particular kitchen I’ve linked to is a lot more industrial than we are going for, this little sink area is just lovely and so inspiring with the wood tones and more traditional style.  It looks like a piece of furniture stained and added in!  Beautiful.Wood Island

This article was a good read and led to some interesting discussion in our house.  I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!

Next up, House of Jade Interiors (formerly 6th Street Design School) was one of the first design blogs I ever read.  To watch Kirsten’s career just take off in recent months has been exciting and a learning experience for me!    I especially love this post that includes a brief video showing some of the installation process at one of her newest projects.  I love that part of design- when all the planning details are in place, the bones of the home are finished, and you actually get to style everything with gorgeous accessories.  Looks like so much fun!

Lastly, Paul and I have recently partnered up with a nonprofit company called Hand Up Global Goods (HUGG).  We did a Valentine’s photo series for them and it was so much fun to flex our creative muscles in a different way.
