What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: A Mid-Century Modern Getaway
The kitchen was completely remodeled and outfitted with efficient high-end appliances. Backsplash tile from Heath Ceramics adds to the home's unique color palette. DeLisle decided to choose brisk and bold colors such as Prussian blue, grass green and pink, combined with more earthy tones such as terracotta, gold and sand. The combination is decidedly fresh but understated. McGuire barstools at the kitchen counter were reupholstered in colorful fabric from Lee Jofa.
Vanessa Brunner added this to How to Plan a Kitchen Workflow That Works
Determining FunctionDeciding on the right layout for your kitchen is a personal decision — each individual or family uses the kitchen differently. Think about your workflow in terms of everyday function and social use. Architect Hiromi Ogawa recommends thinking about how you use your kitchen, how many people cook there at the same time, if your kitchen is also an entertaining or social space, and what your long- and short-term goals are for the kitchen.
Sara Rivka Dahan added this to Go Tropical the Easy Way With Bromeliads
Once the bromeliad bloom dies, the plant itself can still be enjoyed for its long green leaves and rosette growth formation. A black pot serves as a perfect foil for these bright green leaves and ties together a room with other black accents.
Becky Harris added this to The '70s Are Back. Can Ya Dig It?
Pops of happy florals. This clean, contemporary space doesn't take itself too seriously; it's punctuated by pop floral prints atop the bar stools.
