James Stratton is a Dream Kitchen Designer and Design Winner

James Stratton of DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen is a Dream Kitchen Designer and a Wellborn Design Winner!

James entered his “Townhome Treasure” in the (Large Kitchen (>42 sq ft of Countertops) Type: Remodel) Category and won.

We are proud to share his work with you! Enjoy the images and his design statement below.

When you walked into this Townhome you were faced with an outdated and cramped kitchen.

Before 003

The customer wanted her guests to be greeted by a bright, “up to date” space which incorporated a warm classic style.

Now, as you enter this townhome you are drawn into the sophisticated, modern kitchen with its touch of European styling.

The diminutive space and placing of skylights made opening the kitchen difficult. By expanding the room into the laundry room both obstacles were overcome. The washer and dryer had to be placed inside the kitchen which created a blemish to the design.

By “hiding” the washer and dryer behind matching Wellborn cabinetry customized bi-fold doors, a balance and continuity was established which ultimately contributed to the design of this space.

With the extensive choices of door styles and accessories that Wellborn offers, cabinets that were oak and ordinary were replaced by Monterey Maple Cabinetry finished in Glacier. This made a homely kitchen come to life with sophistication and warmth.

White tile countertops were replaced with beautiful granite.

Using the colors in the granite a distinctive backsplash in a three-dimensional design was an artful addition, a pleasing change from the plain blue and white tile backsplash that existed before.

The design of the workspace is redefined by changing a closed “u” to a more open design.

The island has an elegant 6cm OG round over edge, giving prominence to the black granite composite under mount sink.

The heated tile floor provided a literal warmth which allowed the customer to function a little easier on those cold winter mornings, as opposed to the vinyl floor which existed before.

Recessed lighting, classy pendants and natural skylights created general and task lighting which made
a dreary kitchen more brilliant and workable, and added to the panache of the design.
Attention to detail was followed all the way down to the hardware on the cabinet doors in a collaboration of different
styles.

This created a customized look, which the client loved!

Our Emerald "Color of the Year" Tribute

As Pantone unveiled their 2013 Color of the Year – we just had to research Emerald and see what others are doing and how we can jump “on board” the Emerald Express.
So our tribute to “Emerald” begins: we searched through the pages of  Pinterest and Houzz  to find spaces and products where Emerald provides simple bursts of renewed energy or is intelligently positioned through-out an entire space to create the Wow that your space was needing!
Emerald truly can be a chameleon of spaces from the elegant decor of dining rooms of old to vintage basement retreats created for fun-filled weekends. We don’t even begin to address clothing, make-up or other industries outside of fashion…. 🙂
Emerald can be your theme….simple to dynamic…. Emerald truly answers the “color call” this year!
(pay attention to the others as well…..)
Houzz is alive with the evolution of Emerald! Can’t wait to see all the new additions for 2013!

Christmas Decor 101 Front Door Theme

Each year I start with our front door on my festive journey into transforming our home into a Winter Wonderland or like a Christmas gift shop at the local mall…. Either way I delight each year in conjuring up a theme for our “Front Door” – this year I am “theme-less”  so I am frantically scouring one of my favorite sites for new inspiration. www.houzz.com  So please join me as I try to discover my “Front Door” theme for this year!

Inspirational Entrance Number Uno.

I love this Front Door decor from Hydrangea Home because the use of simple items to create an inviting elegant entrance. The Cedar and Evergreen cuttings with the ornaments resting together in the wire planter stand – create a simple look that did not require much money or time – and with the whimsical Snowman Sleigh you have a grand entrance that welcomes all your guests this Christmas Season!

Inspirational Entrance Number Due.
So what if you don’t live where there’s snow or Evergreen free for the clipping….
Try something different like shown here by Other Metro Home.
The traditional Red and Green are exchanged for Turquoise and Dusty Salmon  – the look is still FESTIVE & FUN!
Gives me ideas of mixing Evergreen Clippings with other colors this year…..
Tropical Entry design by Other Metro Home Staging suzanne pignato
Inspirational Entrance Number Trois
Again  – Simple elements create a Grand Entrance! A Great Theme can be carried through-out the entire home effortlessly. So easy to pull the lite Garland through-out the house; stair handrails, mantels, above cabinetry….
The Angel theme can work in every room of the home with such softness that you might just keep them out all year…
And the Poinsettias are perfect as center pieces but don’t forget guest bedrooms and baths for these beautiful reminders of the season. A great take home gift for your visitors.

Well I have some great ideas brewing for this year’s Front Door Theme…. I now have too many!
Have fun with your Decorating for the Season!!!
