PSssST! Over Here!

FiFi O’Neill has given us a teaser to her soon-to- be released book,  entitled;  Romanic Prairie Style. My loving friend Jennifer was kind enough to allow FiFi and her team,  to use her beautiful cottage for some of the soon-to-be revealed inside images.

Restaurant-style stainless kitchen

I was recently asked, “ What’s your favorite blog”? I would have to say Remodelista (click here),  tons of great stuff. I found this retro kitchen in their archives.

The kitchen mixes traditional retro elements with sleek restaurant-style stainless for a timeless look. I like the way the architects used three different yet similar lighting fixtures in one space (a pair of schoolhouse flush-mounted porcelain lights, another pair of ceiling lights over the sink, and a sconce over the chalkboard). Another clever detail: the designers used white paint on the upper cabinets and silver paint on the lower cabinets and drawers.

White and Stainless Kitchen



Steal the look with the following elements:


Above: Start with an industrial stainless-steel kitchen prep table; we like the look and the price of the Economy Stainless Steel Kitchen Island Work Table by John Boos, maker of professional food service products. Available in an array of sizes, starting at $431 for the 72-by-30-inch table at the Stainless Steel Store.


Above: The classic 26-inch counter height Lyon Industrial Stool comes in dove gray with steel seat and black rubber feet; $61.95 at CSN Chairs (can be painted white or professionally powdercoated).

Everyday is a gift
