Designing a Mid Century Modern Kitchen

There's something really magical about taking an old home and completely revitalizing it. And when the home already has some major mid century vibes, you run with it.

2018 Design Trends: French Ranges

A somewhat surprising design trend we've been seeing pop up quite a bit?? French ranges! And, truth be told, we both love seeing anything French inspired in decor.

If you're feeling like your kitchen needs a little something extra, consider this trend we predict will be on a lot of people's radars this year. Here are some of our favourites:

Can you get on board with this 2018 design trend? Is it something you'd consider in your own kitchen if the budget allowed??
