What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Minaret Pendant Light by Jeremy Pyles for Niche ModernMoroccan-inspired pendant lights add decorative flair to this already bright, well-lit kitchen in the Washington, D.C., area. In a kitchen with plenty of detail, these subtle light fixtures show personality without overwhelming.Paint by Benjamin Moore: Gray Owl (walls) and Snowfall White (cabinet and trim); bar stools: Vapor, CB2; chandelier: West Elm; backsplash tile: ¾-inch curved white milk glass subway tile, Susan Jablon; kitchen hardware: Top Knobs
Awards were given in two categories: Design and Customer Satisfaction. If you see a green Design badge on a professional’s profile page, that means one (or more) of the portfolio images was among those that were added to the most ideabooks in 2013. (Houzz’s 16 million monthly users saved more than 230 million photos to their personal ideabooks through the website, iPad/iPhone app and Android app.)For example, Harry Braswell Inc. got a Design badge for this photo, which was the photo that was added to the most ideabooks in 2013. The kitchen design follows the trend revealed in our kitchen remodeling survey, which found that 75 percent of homeowners want soft, neutral colors in the kitchen. Sixty-five percent will choose stainless steel appliances, and half will select a tile backsplash.
7. Updated breakfast nook. Another take on the traditional breakfast nook, this diner-style booth is great for quick and casual mealtimes. The modern upholstery ties in with the space's contemporary light fixtures and plastic bar stools.
