RENOVATE

Moody Kitchen

I’m loving this moody kitchen with the Flavor Paper “Vapor” wallpaper as a backsplash. For those of you concerned with food and other kitchen related stains on wallpaper, there’s always the option of having a glass backsplash over the wallpaper.

Sliding Glass Doors

I’m imagining these glass doors would work well for closet doors, or if it’s a really modern space, they would even work for dividing a kitchen and dining space or for creating a bedroom in loft spaces.

Door Sixteen

I just discovered the great blog Door Sixteen about a young couple’s renovation and rehabilitation of a great old home just 60 miles of New York City. The before and after photos are inspiring to say the least.

Gary Chang’s 344-square-foot apartment

How’s this for thinking outside the box? Er, inside the box? Anyway, after living in this 344 square foot apartment with his family since he was a teenager, Gary, an architect, bought the apartment when in his twenties and decided to go to work on making it a usable, functional space. He managed to incorporate 24 rooms by clever sectioning and partitioning depending on his needs.

Malm Fireplace

If you’ve spent any time browsing through mid century inspired interiors, you’re sure to have come across the Malm Fireplace. While I’m no expert on fireplaces and construction, it does seem like this would be (relatively) easy to install, and perhaps a lot less expensive than adding a traditional fireplace and flue.

The Malm Fireplace can be used indoors or out, and comes with a three-piece flue for ceilings up to eight feet. (Additional flue pieces are available for taller ceilings.) The advantage of a freestanding fireplace is that it heats up and radiates more efficiently. And unlike traditional wood-burning stoves, the Malm Fireplace gives you a clear view of the fire from a variety of angles.

H 96″ W 34″ D 34″
Steel; white porcelain finish; removable front screen.

Shed Remodel of Garage Apt.

There’s something so perfect about little spaces to remodel. I think the best thing about it is that you can really choose high quality materials because the square footage is small enough that your budget doesn’t take a hit. This remodel by Shed is inspirational.

Corner Shelf

It’s the little interesting touches and details that make a home special. I love this little corner shelf idea used in the Kapero office in Stockholm, Sweden.

Hackett Hall McKnight’s Dowling House

I’m loving these large scale windows and simplicity of design in the Dowling House by Hackett Hall McKnight. Also of interest are these narrow doors which abut them, providing an interesting contrast.

Infinitos Solid Steel Plate Countertops

I’m seriously considering these solid steel plate counter tops for my kitchen remodel. I especially like the look of this island.

The Infinitos Countertops are modular and are fully sustainable and re-surfaceable. Constructed of solid ¼” steel, INFINITOS countertops will last virtually forever, are available in virtually any color, and can be stripped and re-surfaced again and again. At the end of its useful life, it can be given to another user, or can be fully recycled. This proves to be a strong element of sustainability that more businesses, institutions, and individuals are requesting. INFINITOS can contribute significantly to a LEED rating.

Additionally, you can choose from a standard palette, or from larger palette of specialized colors.

Oak Slat headboard and shelving unit

This 280 square foot home actually looks quite large despite its tiny footprint due to the simple treatments and some visual tricks. The way the custom oak-slat headboard fills the expanse of wall behind the queen size bed actually makes the space seem larger than if a regular queensize headboard were crammed in the tiny space because the full-wall headboard creates a visual flow instead of dividing the space into wall/headboard/wall sections.

DWR Kitchen Cabinets

I was excited to find out that DWR will be offering kitchens at the start of the new year. The modular systems are designed by Nilus de Matran and are actually sort of like furniture for the kitchen because they are portable and can be taken with you when you move. Amazing.

Transom Windows

This apartment in Copenhagen is beautiful. From the light wood floors, to the white walls, to the simple furniture selections…I’m smitten.

I absolutely love the transom window above the door. If you have the ceiling height, it could be a good way to add extra light into a dark room or just make a plain door more interesting.
