Extending the Kitchen Island

Extending the Kitchen Island

If you are looking to gain space in the kitchen, consider this image, which inspires a simple DIY idea of extending the kitchen island to gain dining and/or working space. Adding a rectangular plank to the island and attaching some legs is an affordable and relatively easy solution. Tie it in with matching colored trim, and viola – extra function. Or even easier, use an existing table and again, tie it in with that trim. The trim is key to achieve that union between the table and the island while providing a nice cascading effect. Overall, this kitchen is bright, white, modern and fun. The choice of yellow adds to that liveliness. And look closely at the back splash. They used old recipes as wallpaper!

Italian retro riviera seaside decor

Italian retro riviera seaside decor

For some dreamy seaside decor ideas, check out Annette Joseph’s Italian summer home. She designed it and claims it boasts a “fishing town meets retro Riviera vibe” and we love it. The entire interior concept was inspired by the sea. So throughout the home you’ll find lots of blues along with warmer colors that have an earthy, sandy or rusty quality to them. Imagine this – an antique fishing boat calmly glides by while you take your slow morning walk on the beach. Now you have a good feeling about the color scheme. The Ligurian style stone wall in the guest room is really impressive and brings in a warm and rustic textural element. Incorporated into the interior scheme are decorative details that pay tribute to the sea – like the porthole mirror, the starfish, seashells and nautical stripe patterns. And what would an Italian home be without some marble? Check out the amazing slabs in the bathroom and kitchen. With all that light, the home feels fresh and airy; you can almost smell the ocean breeze.
