It started with the mosaic. Then I stumbled upon the hexagon tile. That was all it took. I dropped my bag and coat, quickly pulled a great cabinet door from the displays (oh, I forgot to mention that I was out shopping for a client at one of the trade resources in town. I made myself at home with all of their goodies), and hunted for the largest piece of white marble I could get my hands on to represent the countertop. I would probably go for Thassos in real life - polished or brushed, I can't decide. Or a white body quartz for durability. This large carrara tile was the best I could do at the time, and for an on-the-fly conceptual presentation, it does the trick. Anyway - this the just to get you started on your own Ethnic Chic kitchen design!
How comfortable are these spaces? And interesting and inviting and so very livable. No worries about having a dog. Or kids, for that matter! Invite people over and they may not want to leave. You wouldn't have to stress about it until you got sick of them in your house. Understandably, that may not take very long, so keep that in mind before doling out invitations. ;)
I can't get enough of that mosaic. Natural and organic but with a little flare. And I really just mean a little. Silver and I go all the way back to my toddler years and pierced ears, but too much bling makes me squirm. This has just the right amount and is balanced even more with the otherwise rough texture, and the medium-dark stained wood cabinets.
I have the hardware, lighting, barstools, and accessories all selected. Need the dining and living rooms pulled together? Ok! I have that, too! Unfortunately though, that isn't on the house. A girl's gotta make a living, but if you're interested in a mood board or a shopping list for these things to make your own home Ethnic Chic - email me. That is what my E-Design service is all about. :)
