When it comes to good taste, NYC design firm Threshold Interiors has it all figured out. 

It’s hard to believe that just a week ago we were in NYC launching my latest novel, Slightly South of Simple. This week we’ll be hitting spots from Lake Lure, SC to Vero Beach and Palm Beach, Florida, and end up in Atlanta. Check out this week’s events below. I’d love to see you!

I spoke at the 92nd St. Y last week about designing small NYC spaces, but I have to say that these kitchens don’t look small at all!

In fact, they are spacious and leave plenty of room for imagination. 

From beautiful natural stone

To statement-making hardware

Space-defining pendant lighting

To beautiful beams

Threshold has thought of everything in these gorgeous kitchens. 

And this blue backsplash adds a special touch of color. Kitchens aren’t the only thing Threshold does wonderfully well, but today seemed like a great time to focus on the heart of the home. Would any of these elements be included in your dream kitchen?
