Counter Stool Hunt

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

I’ve just completed my search for two counter stools for the kitchen remodel in Las Vegas, it was more difficult than I thought, there were so many considerations! Should they have a back or be backless? Should they swivel? Should they be wood or metal, upholstered or not… what color if so? It took me hours to finally settle on two that would look right in the space.

In my research I came across several favorites, at first I was thinking just a basic metal stool, these work in any style kitchen from farmhouse to industrial like this.

You can’t go wrong with wood counter stools, they add warmth to a light or all white kitchen. How beautiful are these modern shapely counter stools and those Arteriors pendants are ridiculously cool too.

Then I thought perhaps a pair with a contemporary shape?

Modern Desert Style

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

I’ve been spending a lot of time in the desert lately ever since we bought a house there last year and I’ve become so fond of it I miss it when I leave. Dry air, balmy nights, red rocks, cactus and joshua trees, tank tops, flowing skirts, tribal jewelry, and the eternal search for shelter from the hot summer sun.

Have you noticed the reentry of desert style into design? Coachella inspired clothing has taken over summer fashion, and many retailers have added Navajo and southwest motifs to their furniture and textile collections this year. White or stucco walls, wood tones, and desert botanicals complete the look.
