Neutral countertops and backsplash make the white cabinets the focal point in this eat-in kitchen. A stainless farm sink and restaurant faucet give it professional flair.
Family and friends are sure to gather and make memories in this dream kitchen. Details, from the high-end gas range to the wire-brushed flooring, set this cooking space apart.
"You need to make sure that the contractor is right for you, because he's going to be in your home, and you want to make sure it's the right contractor," Jeff says. Stephen Drucker, former editor in chief of House Beautiful adds, "When you interview contractors and check references, the thing you want to find out is, how fast do they return phone calls? A contractor who returns phone calls fast has nothing to hide, and it's going to reduce your anxiety level."
When the owners of this Santa Barbara home grew weary of their worn and tired side yard they decided to consult a professional landscape designer. Ashley Farrell installed synthetic grass and flagstone pavers and framed it with Pennisetum and colorful daylilies.
This traditional kitchen has professional touches like a large range hood, oversized range, pot filler, and large refrigerator–everything the expert cook would want. Designer Regina Bilotta wrapped the room in warm materials, added rich colors, included a cozy banquette, wine area and top cabinets without sparing any details, from globe lights and curved counters to lighted cabinetry and wine storage area.
This open-concept kitchen blends traditional finishes with modern convenience. The granite countertops and brick flooring lend warmth, while the Mediterranean chandelier and oceanside view add tons of eye candy.
Ashley Farrell created a low-maintenance mini oasis for this Santa Barbara couple and complemented the artificial turf with Dianella, asparagus fern, Phormium tenax and dwarf Bird of Paradise. Instead of using mulch she opted for tumbled black Mexican stones, which creates a nice contrast.
