Sometimes the best design ideas come in the smallest of packages. And for me, that tiny design wonder is Megan Pflug’s incredible antique sink. She unveiled her mini kitchen makeover earlier this year, but I’ve found myself going back to this one room over and over again for inspiration and ideas. Not only has she inspired me to consider accordion sconces for our kitchen, but she’s made me want to spend hours digging around eBay and other sites to try to find a stunning little sink like this one (paired with that cute checked skirt? perfect). If you need a little makeover inspiration and want to see how her amazing kitchen came together, click here to check it all out online. Until Monday, I hope you all have a wonderful and restful weekend. xo, grace
It’s funny how things overlap in life sometimes — this Before & After dropped in my inbox just as I was attempting to make my first-ever mosaic design. I’m using standard pre-cut tiles, but after seeing Marisa’s lovely kitchen backsplash, I’m inspired to break a few china pieces and play around. The dark grout was an incredibly inspired choice — not only does it add a great moment of contrast in the newly white-washed kitchen, but it also makes the mosaic pattern stand out much more than it would on a light background. Lest we forget the other key ingredients to this successful kitchen redo, I have to say I also love the dark painted floors, the striped rug and the colorful accessories popped in here and there. Nicely done, Marisa!
