10 Ways to Add Style to Your Kitchen

deVOL Kitchens

 

When it comes to kitchens, we spend a lot of time thinking about the usual things. White or stainless appliances? Wood or white cabinets? Wood or tile floors? Beyond the basics, there are so many ways to make the heart of the home warm, welcoming and absolutely you. Take a peek at a few of our favorite ways to add style to the kitchen!

1. Beautiful beams. Beams instantly lend a rustic feel, interest on the ceiling and, we think, an overall cozy feeling!

2. Add an arch. In the kitchen, the little things are everything. Arches are one of our favorite architectural details that create instant charm.

4. Use a pot rack. Not only is a pot rack a convenient way to free up cabinet space, but it also looks fabulous.

6. Accent with natural stone. Natural stone is a beautiful touch in a kitchen. This honed marble is absolutely stunning!

7. Hang your favorite art. In the land of appliances and cookware, art may not be a top priority but a well-placed piece or two adds tons of personality!

8. Display serveware with glass front cabinets. Glass front cabinets feel light, open and airy and are a great way to display favorite service pieces, china, wine glasses or family silver.

9. Paint cabinets a signature color. In a world where neutral cabinets are the norm, painting cabinets a statement color is a way to instantly set your kitchen apart.

10. Make a splash with your range hood. From a simple microwave vent to something truly spectacular, there are so many ways to vent your kitchen. A unique, beautiful range hood like this one adds so much impact.

Creating a Spa Like Master Bath

Alyssa Rosenheck Photography

 

As the world spins faster and we get busier and busier in our lives, it is increasingly more important for our homes to become the soothing retreats  we need to unwind. There’s no place where that is more important than in the first place you see in the morning and the last place you visit at night: the master bathroom. Whether it’s adding beautiful vanities that look as much like stunning furniture as sinks, or making sure the lighting is just right, the little things can help ensure that this all-important room feels like an oasis. While we can’t create a view, we can make the most of it in our bathrooms, focusing on maximizing light through the windows and situating our baths on the most private ends of our homes.

There is nothing quite as relaxing as a steam shower in the privacy of your own master bathroom. This luxury is getting easier and easier to install. Soaking tubs are another easy bathroom staple that can truly make you feel like you’ve had a relaxing spa day in the comfort of your own home. Simple elements from the outdoors can make your bath feel soothing and calmer. Just a few fresh flowers or a simple plant are the perfect addition. What are your favorite elements of a spa-like bathroom?

Summer Showers and Beautiful Baths!

A;yssa Rosenheck Photography

 

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a great day. Today is officially the last day of school–the last day of preschool, even–which is incredibly hard to believe. I feel like I should be upset and contemplative over the fact that preschool is over and next year is Kindergarten, but I am so excited for summer I can’t muster much sadness!  With almost three months of sandy feel, pool time and plenty of guests ahead of us, all we know is that our bathrooms are getting ready to work over time!  We know so many people that are making the most of their space by ditching their bathtubs all together in favor of generously sized showers. While we love a gorgeous shower as much as the next person, we can’t even imagine not having a bathtub! It’s the perfect relaxing end to a day–especially when it looks like this! What about you? Could you ditch your bathtub for good? 

 

A gorgeous vanity is the perfect finishing touch in a well-appointed bathroom. We love the drawers for keeping everything neat and organized.

While we love frameless, elegant shower doors that seem to disappear, there’s no arguing that these steel doors make such a chic statement with a hint of industrial thrown in! If we’re going to spend the next three months soaking sandy bathing suits and rinsing chlorine-laden hair, why not have the most beautiful possible spot to do so? We don’t know about you, but we’re so looking forward to summer, gritty floors and all! 

 

What design bloggers are saying about Slightly South of Simple:

“If you want a wonderful book to read now or on Spring break or summer vacation order this book out in April. I feel very lucky to have received an advance copy and I was hooked 4 pages into reading it. That never happens to me unless it is a decorating book, trust me this book is wonderful. I can totally visualize everything she describes in writing. I am a visual gal so this is fun for me. This needs to be made into a movie. It looks like my beautiful Southern friend Kristy Woodson Harvey has done it again with… Slightly South of Simple.” Kathysue Perdue, Good Life of Design

 

Upcoming on the Slightly South of Simple Tour:

Monday, June 12: Sapphire Valley Country Club, Cashiers, NC, 4-6pm, drop-in reception. Tickets are $25 and include light hors d’oeuvres and a copy of Slightly South of Simple. Open to the public. Contact Sidney Truesdale for more information 828-743-2462.
