I’ve had a long-lasting love affair with concrete as a design element, and have gorgeous stained concrete flooring throughout my home. But even the lowly “concrete masonry unit” — or cinder block — has a special place in my heart due to the versatility and texture it brings to just about any home—indoors or out.– See the whole post at The Interior Collective.
It’s a week of kitchens and bathrooms here as I head into the upcoming Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in New Orleans on Friday and Saturday. I will be helping to present a workshop at KBIS on telling your brand’s story online — all thanks to my friends at Caesarstone, whose blog, The Interior Collective, I write for. Don’t worry: it’s not lost on me that just earlier this year I wrote that I’m not the kind to do a “week of kitchens” series — I’m still not. At least, not without a compelling reason.
Speaking of compelling, this is one of my favorite kitchens ever. Great materials and the fact that it’s a few steps higher than the dining area is terrific.

Sometimes I run low on inspiration; seems like every site and tumblr is running the same set of images and I’m left without knowing where to turn. Happily, today when that happened I remembered this image–it’s one I carried around for months as my phone wallpaper and it’s a big part of what inspired me to start this site. Thank you Blake Dollahite for being part of the original small group of designers and craftspeople who (unknowingly) helped push me in this direction.
