A Whole-House Color Palette

One of the tricks that makes model-homes so inviting to home buyers is the strong color palette carried through every room of the house.  A lot of planning goes into deciding and using that color palette in unique ways throughout the house so buyers see the charms of each room individually and the house as a whole.

You can use this trick too to make your home feel connected and cohesive.  The Room of the Week is actually part of a house that demonstrates exactly how to do this in a real home (rather than a model-home).  Let’s take a look….

A Farmhouse Table for Every Style

One of my favorite things in the Room of the Week is the gorgeous farmhouse-style table right in the center.  I can just imagine the family gathering here for family dinners, and special occasions and even just after the kids get home from school for a snack and homework.  The worn wood and simple metal chairs are low-maintenance and give a casual feeling to the kitchen.

Even if you don’t have the same kitchen layout in your home, you can achieve a similar casual feeling using the farmhouse table/metal chair combo no matter what your style is.  Here is the combo in four different styles.

Anyone have an eat-in kitchen?  Or a farmhouse table they love…maybe a source to share with everyone?

Room of the Week: A Charming Eat-in Kitchen

I know I keep saying I am back and ready to blog again after our cross-country move, but this week I actually mean it! I’m back sharing the most darling eat-in kitchen designed by Clayton & Little Architects.  This kitchen uses many design elements that I just love and can be translated into so many different types of design styles. Let’s dive right in and check out this kitchen!
