Well people….it was quite the week…..2 room installs and and curtain install gone wrong.  Not earth shattering but all kinds of hardware problems with shipping of wrong finishes.

My installer said it is getting more common….as they don’t have enough people to fill the orders.  Supply chain going wrong!

But….the amount of shopping I had to do for accessories but exhausting for sure.  I’ve said this before but you have to practically overbuy 3 times what you will need.  

Blah Blah Blah…..it’s part of the gig and hey that is what I signed up for:)

On Tuesday I had the kitchen install.  After 3 months everything finally arrived so they were anxious to have a place to sit and eat!

I worked on this renovation with Ladisic Fines Homes all spring and summer.  Architects were Pritchett Dixon

The cabinets are SW Mindful Gray.  I had the table custom made because of the space between the island and eating area was tight!

When we were in design meetings I had the idea to put open shelves here…..just for breathing room.

A custom hood and custom leather barstools from Charles Stewart.

This was a renovation so the ceiling differences made a nice place to tuck the dining area in.

I was really pleased with my choice of seating.  The Woodbridge cane chairs mixed with a pretty Charles Stewart settee…..

I used the same leather from the barstools with a fabric back for softness…..

Here is a picture of the chairs without the cushions…..

The porch behind the kitchen is the cooking area with a grill.

I used some of her items and just augmented with a few pieces from Homegoods and Crate and Barrel.

Countertops are a quartz…..Caesarstone Calcutta Nuevo

Beautiful hand made walnut table…..

Cute Circa Lighting sconce…..

In this picture you can see how the kitchen relates to the family room……

There is nothing more exciting that seeing how it all comes together.  It’s not uncommon for me to sit around and second guess everything after three months of thinking about it:)

I am always conscious of how people live.  They have 3 very active boys and a dog.  Everything had to be durable and I tried not to accessorize too much.  I had the table custom made for size….. but I  also chose a hard wood like walnut and since it is solid wood…..the top can always be refinished in the future!

I’m pretty stoked that it is Friday.  Cami and I have big plans…..just to hang around. 

The other night we went over to my neighbors for dinner…..it was SO good!

My boo….

Alrighty then…..pictures of the family room next week!

Rock your weekend kids!
