Kitchen: Gilded Innovation


A traditional kitchen is a boxy area full of cabinetry and stone. As we move toward smaller, more open living, create a kitchen that flows into the rest of our home is beginning to trend. More and more custom kitchens are appearing, and the innovations are spectacular.


The Beam Kitchen concept collaboration by Tom Dixon and Lindholdt Studio is a perfect example of how we can take the heart of the home to the next level…


Using a series of gilded metal boxes mounted to raw steel beams, a sculptural arrangement, this is the kitchen evolved.

That smoky brick backdrop isn’t too bad either, right?

LOL Colors: New Site Provides Tool for Color Inspiration


Designer Mackenzie Child challenged himself to create a website for color palette inspiration, named Lol Colors. After learning and using wordpress to create this site (another story, hehehe), I appreciate the effort, and his result is beautiful and endlessly inspiring, but considering that he gave himself a 24 hour deadline to design the entire site – his result is exceptional.
