two very different settings of kitchen using same color & material palette: brass hardware, gray cabinets and marble countertop, and both kitchens look amazingly chic. love the simplicity and the accent of brass hardware.

white vs. black, which one is more of your type?

i just placed my first order from Society6 and i am really looking forward to having that very first ever laptop sleeve!! yes you heard it right, the very first one. somehow i’ve never had one before (usually i just threw my macbook into the tote bag) and never felt the need to have one until recent. it’s about time!

so can you guess which one i actually placed the order?

it is hard to believe we’re now arriving at the month of october, the last quarter of 2016. didn’t we just pop the champagne and say hello to 2016?? crazy. and i am so excited to finally have some time to be back to the blogsphere.

here is a gorgeous apartment for sale (and sold!) from goteborg, sweden. subway tile with darker grout creates a sharper definition in this very light tone kitchen… and that white and gold hardware  combination is just so irresistibly good.

founded by brian faherty in 2003 following his discovery of a long-lost collection of cast-iron glass shade moulds in an abandoned warehouse, schoolhouse has every ingredients the creative makers believe in: the preservation of american manufacturing, thoughtful living and purposeful design.

+isaac pendant+

i’ve been eyeing this issac pendant for a while. the minimal look of scandinavian-meets-vintage would be perfect for our second floor hallway. the isaac pendant is part of the Schoolhouse Electric Original, handcrafted in the portland factory.

+brass hardware+

they also have the solid brass cabinet knobs & drawer pulls handcrafted in the USA from 95% recycled brass. simply beautiful.

the freshly cut look of plywood pair with marble countertop, these two simple materials, are surprisingly a perfect complimentary to each other. so minimal in form but rich in its character. simply gorgeous. and hey did i mention there is a beautiful concrete floor (in true cement gray) that extends inside-out? it must be such a treat to have your daily meals or cup of coffee here with that view.

if you’re like me who still believe in concrete floor, check out these beautiful examples here and here by antwerpen-based architecture studio made architects.
