My favorite room

Beautiful is always in style.

 

The curve of a chair back. The worn finish on a dresser knob. The iron scroll work of a footboard that cradles the mattress beneath you...as the glint of light off the crystal chandelier overhead catches you unaware. You close your eyes and breathe in the scent of fresh linen and candles. And you thank yourself for asking KBM Designs to create for you your own favorite room.

Dance of the straight and not so narrow.

 

Who says you can't have it all? An acrylic side table with arrow straight legs cozied up to a chair with sumptuous curves covered in classic linen. Formality with a twist, says the floral pillow decked out in trim as it strikes a jaunty pose against the arm of a dutiful straight back sofa. Iron lamps as imposing as the queen's night watchman might steal the show, but for the inquisitive draw of the eye they attract, dutifully framing the wistful piece of artwork dancing on the wall just behind.

Home is where the hearth is.

 

Wood plank floors, galvanized tin...edges patina'd the same orange-rose hue of the setting sun. Doors and shutters striped of paint but not of character, born of wind, rain, a dry heat or the relentless humidity every summer seems to bring. A comfy chair and sofa...a bit more streamlined, more gray than denim, but still perfect for cradling blankets, babies, tired mamas too. Books with dog-eared pages sit obediently next to framed faces old and young, posed on surfaces time-worn or new.  All evoking the satisfaction born from good works, strong family and traditions past and to come.

If Gatsby were alive today.

 

Strong, individualistic, unmistakably unmistakable. There is no question who you are, want you want, and most importantly, what you want your home to say. White and tuxedo black...pass the caviar across the ebony and chrome table, please. Crisp navy and citron green...happiness is sipping fresh squeezed OJ poolside behind a new patio screen. Mirror, mirror, a little ivory, a tad of cream...what could be more practical than drinking champagne in bare feet.

A nod to the best of what came before.

 

Before texting, there was conversation. Before halogen, the warmth of a candle's glow. Wood carved and stained by a craftsperson's hand, perhaps a bit tired and worn now...but oh what stories those dinged legs and pitted surfaces could tell, if only. Plates shelved, utensils hung...as beautiful to look at as easy to store and gather. For the homeowner that cherishes all that came before, what better than to mix the best of old and new.

Bubbles and bows.

 

Wonder what ever happened to Cinderella after the ball? We can't help but think installing a new kitchen and bath were at the top of her list. Crisp porcelains, sparkling glass. Fabricated   marbles in striated greys and whites cascading across smooth countertops...waterfalls to the floor. More importantly, those conveniences that turn work rooms into play. Coffee station just outside the master bath. Heated tile floors within. Showers that steam. Tubs that jet. The perfect place to relax after hosting a fabulous gourmet dinner around your new dining island and sideboard buffet.
