I LOVE this!

Bored with stainless steel and lack of color in your space? Steel S.p.A. and designer Alcide Po must have understood what that felt like before they designed and introduced a range of cookers and hoods that features the contemporarydesign of the Genesi refrigerator.

Chalkboards in the Kitchen


Two years ago my husband and I were feeling crafty and, with the help of spray-on chalkboard, created an entire chalkboard wall in our kitchen.  It was a messy project, but has become the singularly most useful thing in our kitchen.

Now I need to get my hands on the Magnetic Board in Black Matte by Homapal -- an easier way to install chalkboards!

Skip the Paint


I've painted every room in my home at least 3 times in the past 5 years -- and can never quite get the effect I'm going for.

Thinking of scraping it all and going with an ultra-mod wall covering.

My current fave is the Wild Orchid Series

The hood gets skinny

Just when it seems that a high-end kitchen design couldn’t get any better, we see the eye sore: a massive range above the stove. To combat the epidemic of big, bulky ranges that somehow made it into our homes and restaurants for years, Ammunition Group teamed up with Zephyr to create the Arc Collection of tech-savvy devices that achieve the unthinkable in utility design.

The Briva In-Sink Dishwasher by KitchenAid

I have died and gone to domestic heaven!

I unfortunatly am saddled with a small, poorly laid out kitchen. I'm lucky to have enough space for my dog's food and water dish, nevermind a dishwasher.

We are (and have been) remodeling our kitchen and have been looking for a new sink -- and then I found the ultimate holy grail. The KitchenAid stainless steel Briva in-sink dishwasher.
