Fabulous Room Friday 06.20.14

 I’ve been in Los Angeles this week visiting some of my favorite shops and showrooms to source some pieces for clients and luckily, I’ve been able to meet up with some friends while I’ve been here. I always enjoy being in L.A. so much. In a way, it feels like coming home, even though I have never lived here.  I feel inspired by everything around me– the architecture, weather, design community, creative friends, beautiful spaces– everything, really!

While this week’s “Fabulous Room” isn’t in California, I feel like it totally could be. I first came across the image above on Pinterest and loved the huge, rustic island, vibrant Kilim rug, blonde hardwood floors,  and the color of the cabinets. Doesn’t it look like it could be a set in a Nancy Meyers movie? It has a similar vibe to the kitchen Meryl Streep’s character had in It’s Complicated. In reality, the kitchen was designed by Cantley & Company of Birmingham, Alabama. When I set about tracking down more photos, I wasn’t able to find a website, but I did find their Facebook page and a couple more images of this lovely kitchen.

{I love the large island and the fact that it is big enough to seat so many people! I also really like the creamy color of the cabinets and all of the windows. The room looks so cozy and inviting, yet it is completely luxurious.}

{I love the hood over the range as well as the backsplash. As much as I love and use classic subway tile, it’s refreshing to see something slightly different. I also love the long cabinet pulls and that stunning Kilim runner. The kitchen looks like it could be in an old Spanish colonial house in L.A., a farmhouse in Napa or even the South of France, and apparently, Birmingham, too! It seems like the design scene is really thriving there right now. So much beautiful work is coming out of Alabama!}

Have a wonderful weekend! I am going to soak up a little more of L.A. for a couple more days.
