Recently I shared a tour of
the home office in Chicago’s
(a design house at the Merch Mart),
and today we’ll peek at the lovely
kitchen designed by Shawna Dillon
of Snaidero Chicago.
(My husband and I toured the dream home
last month, and it will remain open
to tour until early December.)
Trim color is Benjamin Moore – china white, and the floor is limestone tile.
Snaidero designed the layout to be
“both utilitarian and also a modern
day ‘family room.'”
omg, black steel doors make me woozy.
I loved it in person!
You have to use your imagination
in terms of the lighting…the space
has no natural light which is
critical (for me and my issues)
with so many dark surfaces.
all photos mine
Reaaalllllly liked the wall color and may
be using it in my own kitchen
(Benjamin Moore – Ashley Grey).
It’s what I think of as an old
Gustavian grey with not
too much blue.
It was amazing with the
Calcutta Gold marble.
And I adore the mixed media paintings
and chandeliers by Bradley Hughes.
How do you like this detail?
Nothing says I LOVE YOU FIFI
like a chic pooch dish filler, yes?
But maybe we should not all
rush out and install one just yet.
Even though we knoooowwww
our perfect children would NEVER
dream of disturbing or misusing it,
I personally prefer not to
discover Fifi paddling by the Wolf range
in my flooded designer kitchen
and be forced to utter to the children:
“WE LOVE YOU
BUT WE’RE GOING
TO HAVE TO
LET YOU GO. ”
Peace to you right where you are.
p.s. did you check out the painting
of my pooch done by cindy at
the top of my sidebar?
she is TALENTED!
p.s.s. Melanie of Royal Design Stencils
posted pics of my project posted yesterday
on her blog and made me feel all fancy!
