Farmhouse Galley Kitchen

StudioRenee BeamerComment

When Jon and I help his customers prepare for the myriad of decisions they will make in designing their custom kitchen, I encourage them to tap into the wealth of inspiration on Pinterest. Someone probably combined the different elements being considered, and that takes the guesswork out of visualizing the end result. I'm pretty sure I saw this kitchen in a pin before we built it.

My recipe for our kitchen is Comfort Gray wall color by Sherwin Williams, white Shaker style cabinetry with brushed nickel drawer pulls, Kitchen Aid stainless steel appliances, Arizona White solid surface, and white subway tile backsplash.

Shop my style:

Elkay Stainless Farm Sink

Moen Align Faucet

World Market Wood & Iron Valencia Chandelier

Pottery Barn Studio Wall Shelf

Dash & Albert Gradation Ticking Woven Cotton Runner


Some Thoughts on Adding Plants to Your Decor

StudioRenee BeamerComment

For some reason, I get the Better Homes & Gardens magazine, and this month's cover highlights adding plants to home décor. All of the potted trees are in woven baskets, and various stands give some of the live decor a prominent place in the display.

I've been housing more potted trees in baskets, and I like the vibe it brings to the home. The look is finished, but still casual if that makes sense!

The fiddle-leaf fig tree appears to be a fast grower and I'm looking forward to the day it takes center stage in our family room.
