{design inspiration: tips for two tone kitchen cabinets}

Two-tone cabinets are a beautiful and easy way to add some spice to your kitchen. They add depth and contrast — and an extra sense of style — to a space that can often be defined by appliances and furniture.

If you’d like to add some color to your cabinets, take your inspiration from these designer look, which can all be adapted for DIY projects.

Transitional Kitchen by Rebecca Hay Designs (Toronto)

Two-Tone Tips

  • Create a focal point
    Painting your island or the bar off to the side of your kitchen is a great way to incorporate a fun pop of color. Be bold and use reds, forest greens, or even black for your kitchen island. After all, the island is often the gathering place in the kitchen, and a bright color can add some pizazz to an otherwise monotone room.

{friday finds: before and after from chango & co}

before and after with scion wallpaper in a bathroom
I came across these awesome before and after photos from Chango & Co, a full service interior design firm in Brooklyn, New York.  The room transformations are just plain delightful. I thought some of the “before” rooms looked pretty good until I saw Chango & Co’s before & after photos side by side. Here’s a link to the entire Chango & Co before and after gallery.

 To achieve an “after” look like these beautiful Chango & Co spaces I know I would need the help of an interior designer. Watching HGTV does not make you a designer. Hiring a designer is not just for the rich and famous. Are you familiar with the saying,  “If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional, wait until you hire an amateur.”  Designers are educated professionals. They can help you express your style, save you time and money and frustration.

The staff at Hirshfield’s Design Studio have names of interior designers who would be a good fit with the scope of your project, big or small. They can be reached at 612-374-8901.

P.S. We carry both of the fabulous wallpaper patterns shown in the photos.

{lake home and cabin show preview}

Minnesotans love our lakes. In the summer, we can’t wait to get to the cabin for the weekend (or hopefully more).  In the winter, we look for ways to make that lake home or cabin even better. That’s why the Lake Home & Cabin Show is such a popular attraction every February.
