Modern Dark Delights

Guys, the remediation is finally complete. I know, like most projects in home renovation, it was supposed to take just two weeks, but it took almost five. Always double any quote you get. The good news? We got a ton of the demo work out of the way that I would have to do in literally every room, minus the loft bedroom. I can’t wait for the rose garden to start blooming agin. Remember this view?

Rose Garden Cabin

We will get to that space – eventually. I’m laughing out loud that we were going to start there, and now it looks like it will be the last space we get to. I like to start with the bathroom, then the kitchen, for some obvious comfort reasons. Ya gotta roll with the punches, guys.

That being said, we also got our generator delivered! I know it’s not the most exciting upgrade, but we lose power in the remote area where the cabin is built for up to ten days at a time. Right in the middle of remediation, we had a massive storm that caused us to lose power for seven days just two weeks ago. Investing in a backup generator and installing a propane tank to power it was prudent. Yes, it’s a significant investment in the budget, but what’s the point of a designer kitchen if you can’t cook in it for weeks?

Also, one design detail I am settled on is adding a tiny shelf to the kitchen backsplash that is skinny enough for my favorite salt and pepper mills, spices, and a propagation vase while cooking.

My idea is to have the floating shelf be the same material as the counters and backsplash. Above this will be the redwood paneling to soften the more modern approach. Sorta like the below, just not a double.

As we focus on the not so fun stuff, it’s these little design details that keep me energized and turn an average design to exceptional – one detail at a time. Try to think about a few wow moments in each room, guys. It makes all the difference.

Ok, subject change: if you’ve been following me for a while now, you probably know I take my role as a dog and plant dad seriously. As such, I created a list of the best indoor hanging plants that are safe for cats and dogs. This post also shares the benefits of hanging plants for your health and aesthetics, along with a listing of some of my favorites for your home. I get asked all the time about pet-friendly indoor options, and I wanted to have a definitive guide for you in one spot. Make sure you check it out before your next stop at the nursery!

Okay, I found this gorgeous dark living room design that was to sultry not to make a shopping list for. The different inky paint, paired with the sophisticated herringbone flooring, is fairly intoxicating. Of course, the dramatic gallery accent wall mixed with a beautiful tricorn black paint is the moment – I want to lounge in my fancy PJs and drink a whiskey cocktail on the sofa. I created a mood board full of pieces you can use to recreate the space. Let’s dive in.
