Project Reveal: Lexington Green II – Part 1, Kitchen, Dining Room & Bar

Love all of my editor friends, and I am not giving up! I just decided it’s time for this fun and colorful project to see the bright light of day…maybe it’s just what the doctor ordered during Covid times? (Fauci, not Atlas…)

(Past) Project Reveal: A Colorful Kit House Renovation

I have taken a couple of prolonged ‘pauses’ in blogging, during which we completed and photographed some pretty great projects. This is one of them.

I’ve truly missed writing here, and making connections with my readers. With the world in various states of lockdown and quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic, now…

Friday Family-Friendly Find: Q Quartz Urban Lava

It’s no secret that engineered stone countertops (aka quartz) are getting really good at mimicking natural stone – dramatically-veined white marbles, in particular. They are great imitators. And recently, new finishes have become available that further enhance the illusion. You can now find an increasing variety of quartz with a honed or satin finish. But…
