Thanksgiving Table Settings

Hello Festive guests!   I guess by now everyone is busy preparing for thanksgiving with family and friends.  Shopping, baking,  and lets not forget a festive table setting!   Wonder what it was like back in
in the old days when we did not have all the luxury's of today.  Probably simple and classic,the whole premise behind the day was to give gratitude for what was on the table and who was around it as well!
Have a wonderful thanksgiving with family and friends!
Here are a few  table settings for inspiration!

Gray Kitchens Cabinets


    Good Day fine friends!   A friend  in Napa Valley is renovating her kitchen and asked if I could post on  gray kitchens.  In doing the research I found that gray is quite  chic and elegant in  a new kitchen.  White as an accent creates  clean and sharp appearances.  Stainless steel appliances work well .  The use of marble countertops picks up the gray veins and is a good choice.   The look can be modern or country.   Enjoy the selection.

Butlers Pantry Design

Hello Hollywood Friends!  In Kitchen and Bath design I  love to recommend to my clients to plan an area for a butlers pantry. Whether the area is large or small .  It makes for a cozy place to have your coffee,juice, refreshments and also entertain in style.  You can create your own pantry area in a 3ft space or a 6ft, the cabinets can include a wine cooler ice maker,  and  one or two cabinets designed with solid or glass wall cabinets.   If you need help in your design, write to me and I will send you an sketch!  Have a great weekend! Ciao!
