My latest obsession is wide mouth vases with green leafs or fresh flower spilling over its edges. You can use these vases anywhere in your home but my favorite places to use them is on a kitchen island or near the sink.

My other obsession is vintage/flat woven rugs. They instantly brighten up any space and I love using them in kitchens like in this stunning design by Studio McGee. Do you spy the wide mouth jar here too?

I love statement wallpaper but for some, wallpaper can be scary or maybe you rent your home and can't make big changes. A great way to get that statement pattern into your home without the big commitment is roman shades or drapery in a statement fabric.

Cutting boards are the perfect mix of form and function. They come in all kinds of shapes and finishes to suit every decor style and I dont see them going out of style. I like to use wood boards, leaning them against the back splash to create layers. Pair them with pretty salt & pepper shakers and crocks full of wood utensils for a easy style.

SMALL SPACES, BIG STYLE

Design TipsAmy BennettComment

Today I want to share with you three small rooms with big style. I have designed a bedroom, living room and dining room mixing some high end and low budget pieces. I am highlighting my favorite pieces from Pottery Barns small spaces collection. All the small space pieces have that high end look without the high price. I love that they are smaller scale and can fit in those tiny city apartments or long and narrow rooms (Like my family room!). 

MODERN BATHROOM REMODEL

HomeAmy BennettComment

The project we are currently working on is remodeling our outdated master bathroom. Its footprint is tiny and it had this huge bathtub that took up most of the room. I’m a big fan of relaxing in a nice hot, bubble bath. Unfortunately, here the hot water runs out long before you get this large tub filled up. We decided to replace the tub with a walk-in shower to really maximize the space.

Modern Kitchen Designs

I love being in my kitchen, I think in another life I would have been a pastry chef. I love making yummy treats or a delicious dinner for my family to enjoy. The sights, the smells, I love it all. My husband and I have lived in a lot of different style homes over the last ten years. Some kitchens I have loved and others I found it hard to work in.
