Hello, loves! I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday with their loved ones and took some much needed time to relax this past week.
Last week there was no blog post because I've been working on something special for all of you. As you know, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday have been taking over the internet. I'm here to give you and your families an easy alternative to sifting through the holiday mayhem online.
I'm offering an alternative to my classic 4 hour in person consultation and will be giving you all a chance to purchase an online 2 hour consultation for only $195. We will have a complimentary intake call an you will be able to fill out your design profile and not eat into your 2 hour time period. The more information you provide me with before our meeting, the better! We will connect at a scheduled time to chat over webcam to work together to source as much as we can for your space in as little time as possible. Your takeaway from the call will be a Pinterest board, leaving you with a reference to return to all of the items that we found for your space. Because I'm feeling extra generous, you'll even get a special holiday surprise after our call! (Don't tell Santa, even his presents aren't this good of a deal).
This consultation is perfect for any person in your life- from kids from 1 to 92. This deal will only be available for a limited time, so email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase. You'll receive a gift certificate in the mail perfectly packaged and ready to give to your loved one near or far.
This week's Get The Look is a modern navy kitchen design with an awesome cement tile backsplash. Color in the kitchen is a great way to add personality to your home, especially if you're going for the dual color cabinet approach. With a neutral up top and a bold color choice on the bottom, you're adding neutral visual space above. This allows you to add a statement backsplash that will seamlessly blend in with the rest of your decor without creating too much visual chaos.
Scroll down to see what I would pick to recreate the look above:
The paint color you see above looks a bit teal on screen, but when it dries on the wall (or your cabinet), it'll be a rich navy color with just a hint of teal undertones. I also changed up the faucet choice a bit because bridge fixtures are my favorites and I want to use them everywhere.
What do you think? Would you use this look as inspiration for your home? Let me know below!
