In Good Taste: Eric Piasecki Photography

kitchen

 There’s a reason we don’t have a bunch of pictures of our own houses on our blog. We’re terrible photographers! No doubt about it, photographing is a real art, and photographing homes is a style all its own. The most fabulous home can look below par in the hands of an amateur photographer. That’s why we are so enamored of the photography of the very talented Eric Piasecki. From the kitchen to the office to the dining room, Piasecki makes every paint color, wood floor and piece of hardware shine under the right light. We hope you love this photographer’s good taste as much as we do!

 After our little marble mishap during the One Room Challenge, we must have marble on the brain this week! One of our favorite staples for making a kitchen sparkle and a bathroom shine, marble pairs fabulously from everything from wood floors to tile, and goes perfectly with every color.

 And the marble these sinks are encased within might look like serious serious progress. And they would have been. If they were ours.

One Room Challenge Kitchen!

 Hold onto your hats, one room challengers! We are so excited to be participating in our first ever One Room Challenge, hosted by the fabulous, lovely and amazing Linda from Calling it Home. Thanks so much for having us, Linda! You may need to shield your eyes on the next couple of photos. Because redoing this kitchen is going to be a bit of a project, to say the least…

 Basically no natural light, five layers of linoleum tile, crumbling plywood cabinets and faux-wood paneling… It’s really hard to choose a favorite thing about this “before” kitchen.
