E-Design Giveaway..

I recently finished this kitchen design for my E-Design client, who is going to be remodeling her kitchen,  I love the way it all came together.  I really enjoy working with E-design clients because it is a simple and fast approach to give you a head start and direction on your project while taking into consideration your budget, space and style. 

Here is how E-design works: I will have you fill out a brief design questionnaire then I will have you email me pictures and measurements of your space as well as a link to your pinterest board. Once I have received the questionnaire, I will be able to determine my time and figure out a flat rate price.  I provide you with a custom design board as well as links to product sources and step by step instructions on how to execute the plan, all of this is done online. 





I want to help you make over your space so I am giving away a custom E-Design board. All you have to do is follow me on my new design Instagram account and tag 3 friends. You can find me at @asaltboxdesign.  I will pick a winner Weds, April 22nd.

Window box additions...

I live in a tall saltbox style house. I have been wanting to add permanent interest to the exterior and bring in year round color to the front of my home. The idea of window boxes came to mind and I'm hoping this will do the trick to add some character that seems to be lacking.

I measured my windows and was on the hunt for 30" window boxes in a modern/contemporary style. I wanted this project to be budget friendly and the problem that I ran into was that most of these what seemed to be simple, easily to construct boxes was the price tag.  Why did a 30" rectangular box have to cost an upwards of $100 a piece? I wasn't willing to pay that so I headed over to Home Depot and came across these wood window boxes in the size I needed for $20 a piece.

 I wasn't a huge fan of the redwood color so I brought home several paint swatches and landed on Behr's Elephant Skin, I chose the exterior flat finish. I like the look and the color it goes much better with my home. I am going to add them to my second level windows to start and see how it goes.

Anyone have experience with window boxes? Have any tips or tricks?

The kitchen is the new living room...

I don't know about you but I feel like when I'm home, 90% of my time is spent in the kitchen. I have to admit, I really don't enjoy cooking or baking but between preparing food, cleaning up messes, unloading/loading the dishwasher and helping kids with homework, a significant amount of time is spent in the kitchen.  I believe a lot of thought should be put into the overall design and functionality of  a kitchen, this is why I am truly passionate about creating a space that makes sense, something that my client will be proud and excited about!

Girls bedroom E-Design reveal...


Here is the design I created for my niece's bedroom that I posted about on Monday. We did the whole design process online, I love how it turned out! I really like the brass colors combined with the more sophisticated turquoise paint color.  I want to use this color in more projects, I love the dramatic appeal without being too dramatic:)

Everything you see on this design board came to an affordable $350. You may have a room in your home that just needs pieces added to step things up a notch!

An Affordable Design Plan> Girl's Bedroom...

I recently put together this design board for my cute niece. She didn't need an entirely new room full of furniture and accessories, she just needed some "filler" pieces and a new paint color to make the room feel more put together. I love designing bedrooms and had so much creating this affordable design. The entire cost of what you see here came to only $350. Whaaaaat, can you believe that? It is possible to create a stylish new look for your space without breaking the bank.

What I've been working on...

I am in the process of putting together my client's impressive home. This has been such a fun project, I love when client's dare to take some design risks and trust that it will all come together beautifully. In my opinion, the best designs are a collaborative effort when two minds work together to create a mix of style, pattern and color. The outcome can be pretty amazing!

We went fairly neutral so far but we will be adding splashes of color to keep things interesting.
You will want to stick around to see the final installments of this design, can't wait to show you!
