Modern kitchen design is now “traditionally” linear, angular and determinedly simple! But in the quest for development, advancement and design diversity we occasionally see conceptual mutations, a line of change that attempts to become a commercial trend.
But however simple the change it is important not to underestimate the complexity of understanding that inspires the designer to move their pencil in an unsolicited manner!
By removing the angular punctuations caused by vertical and horizontal planes meeting the eye is invited to infinitely follow the shape of this kitchen. The cascading appearance used on the gables changes of mood of this design making it more feminine and gentle, allowing it to flow instead of rigidly making a statement. The soft geometry is also more approachable but when used in this way can arguably restrict the potential functional reach of the worktop.
I love the look of Fiddle Leaf Fig trees. I've been craving some greenery in our home and had my mind set on a fig tree. A few weeks ago I found an assortment of large Fig Trees at Sheridan Nurseries, With great excitement I purchased one (it was quite pricey) and had it loaded into the car and my Mom and I drove away. I kept turning around to look at it where the tree lay in the back seat - It was gorgeous. It was also huge. Within us driving a few blocks, reality started to sink in about how big the tree really was. With great disappointment and embarrassment at my inability to judge size, I realized we had to turn the car back around and return it. There was no way it was going to fit in my house.
Last week I was walking by my local flower shop and I spotted a small little potted tree that had a handwritten sign: "White Fig Tree, $10". I walked back later that night and bought him and carried him home. He's perfect. :) Although the leaves are a little different (not as rubbery as the Fiddle Leaf Fig) it still gives me the look I wanted, was easier on the pocket book and small enough for our house. Success! Let's see if I can keep him alive.
Knead Bakery that is in our neighbourhood. This is your classic neighbourhood bakery - Small, and tucked off the main road, it has the most delicious breads and sweets. The cake was so gorgeous that I felt as though it was worthy of its own post. I have yet to see a cake ever decorated like this before. Even if you can't visit the bakery - you may find this photo as inspiration for your own cake decorating adventures. xo Lindsay

A man is highly influenced by his immediate surroundings, because the surroundings are what create an immediate mood. When it comes to your office, a similar thing applies as well. If your ambience is good, high productivity will thrive and lead to better returns. Don’t you want such a scenario? Well, if yes, then we have the perfect answer for you. Modular furniture sets your office apart from others by offering highly innovative furniture that is capable of being dismantled to make more space. This type of furniture is highly in demand since quite a couple of years and ever since it has been introduced, its sales have picked up rapidly.
The best part about modular furniture is ‘what you see is what you get’. When you go to a furniture store, you will notice that modular furniture is arranged exactly in the way you can arrange it in your office. Thus, you can get a fair idea of how your office will appear with the furniture in place. It looks comfortable and doesn’t block the path in your office. An added benefit of modular office furniture is variety! The amazing arrangements you can do with these furniture will throw away all the boredom which your employees face after sitting for months and months in the same cubicle. When you order such a furniture set, you will ensure that your employees are always abuzz with excitement while at work so that you reap the best results.
Office owners spend thousands of dollars by hiring interior designers to design their office but a good alternative of getting customized furniture is by ordering modular office furniture. Customized furniture can be designed according to your own convenience and as per your specifications. You can decide the kind of material that will go in the making of the wardrobe and the color of wood that will be used. Since a director desk is one of the most important places in an office, you can pay special attention to it and get a furniture piece built that can make the director’s room stand apart.
The biggest benefit of modular furniture is space saving. The rising cost of real estate has made it quite difficult to afford a new piece of land for a new office. People should ensure that they make optimum use of the space available to them. When there is customized furniture, you can fold the furniture into small pieces when not in use. Apart from that, the kind of mobility it offers to the office goers in order to move from one place in the office to another is quite appreciable. Also, when you feel like changing the furniture, all you can simple do is rearrange the small tit-bits of furniture and make the furniture look totally new.

I'm not holding back "reveal" photos of our kitchen on purpose ... we're really still working away on it! :) So I'll keep blogging showing you the steps that we're taking to really make our big box store kitchen look custom. For example...we're tiling an entire wall in white subway tile. I was a little nervouse taking the leap to do this but I'm really glad we did as it shows off our tall ceilings and really adds great detailing. It reflects light, and makes this once dark corner sparkle. Can't wait to show you the "after"!! Eeek!
