Kitchen Love

Phew, what a week! I’m working on a three kitchen designs right now. One of my clients is in the process of selecting the stone. We both love the look of  Chinese Calcutta and Carrara marble but don’t love the maintenance issues. The kitchen pictured here uses Chinese Calcutta stone in a honed finish.
Quartzite is another option. It is much more durable but with the durability comes a pretty steep price tag of $100-$185 a square foot!
I’ll keep you posted on our progress. I’m actually going to be uploading a recently photographed kitchen design to my website very soon.

Have a wonderful weekend! I’m hoping I can maintain my regular blogging schedule next week!

I love well thought out kitchen details such as a storage knife drawer.

#2 – I absolutely love this hardware! Jessica has done an amazing job with the designs. I actually just found out we studied design at grad school together, I had no idea she was the genius behind the company and designs!!

AND THE INSPIRATION!
