Fruit in a beautiful dish always looks great on a kitchen counter or on an island. The marble backsplash in this kitchen by Kapito Muller Interiors is the perfect backdrop to show off the bright yellow of the lemons. You could create a similar look with oranges or limes.
Larger pulls are "in" these days, too, particularly among urban kitchen owners who follow the latest trends. "Those customers are gravitating towards larger drawers and horizontal cabinets and so we're designing oversize pulls that look good in proportion," says Atlas Homewares' Morea. "One of my favorites is the more modern matte black pulls that give that Asian feel and make a simple, stylish statement."
Grapefruit knife. OK, this is the height of decadence. But in this two-ended knife, the parallel blades on one end allow me to slice on both sides of the membrane at once. Then the other end, which is serrated, deftly cuts around the outside edge of the grapefruit. (Don't reverse the process, though, because it's not as effective.) When the Texas ruby reds come in, I'm a happy slurper.
Forget about the "vertical metal handles versus wooden knobs" decision of decades past. Designers today are vying to create innovative kitchen drawer and cabinet pulls, and consumers looking for an affordable kitchen update are the beneficiaries. Adrienne Morea, for example, translated America's fascination with leather furnishings into Paradigm pulls in black leather, black crocodile leather and cocoa brown washable suede with polished chrome and brushed nickel accents.
Fabric-based window treatments are a great way to balance all the hard surfaces in the kitchen while also adding pattern and color. This custom arched shade can raise and lower to control sunlight and privacy. “Whether up or down, the shade keeps the kitchen feeling sunny with splashes of yellow from this Thom Filicia fabric, Prospect in Shadow,” says the manufacturer. Continue the look by using fabric in places like lampshades (see the shades on the wall sconces), barstools, chairs and even Fido's bed.
"I would never skimp on a KitchenAid mixer," says Hambright, who bakes even at home and uses her mixers primarily to beat batter and whip egg whites. "I have four ranging in age from one to 17 and they are machines absolutely built to last."Hambright uses one of her mixers as a juicer and admires the many attachments that can enhance the machines, from food mills to sausage grinders. "But they cost hundreds of dollars, so you should really figure out whether you're going to use one of those attachments a lot, getting it down to how much it will cost per use, before making the added investment," she says.
Plants are a great accent to use when styling your kitchen counters. You can either use one plant like in this kitchen by House of Jade Interiors or use several plants throughout your space. You could even grow fresh herbs and keep those out on the counter.
