I got our reminder about Mick De Giulio‘s visit to Natick next week, I totally forgot! I won’t be able to make it but my team will be heading to the  Kohler Signature Store Natick for the event and book signing. Bummed I am going to miss it. His vignette at the Kohler Design Center was my absolutely favorite from our time there. You couldn’t help but be intrigued by the cabinetry design – it’s a design he came up with called ‘Metal Boy’ made of nickel silver, polished stainless steel and glass. I feel like you would have to have a pretty fancy set of pots and pans to be in the lit cabinet! Another detail worth borrowing from someday was the mirrored backs of the dishware shelves – it makes the shelves more light and bright and you can certainly see all your options when you peak in!  The last piece I thought was super cool was the exquisite detailing of the utensil rail behind the range in the backsplash. How the rail fits in a perfect recess of tile coursing is so thoroughly thought through my designers mind can’t help being impressed! Clearly I have a design crush ….

Animals seemed to be everywhere (not that is a new trend), but I had to chuckle how many I saw in different forms, my 5 favorites!

1. Natural Curiosities Zebra – I love how he’s off center and larger than life!

2. 3 hooved stool from Oly Studio, just the right size for a small drink table.

3. Who doesn’t need a rack of lucite antlers (or 2o to cover a whole wall?) Grace & Blake 

4. While we’re thinking about numerous lucite antlers filling a wall, lets throw in a bright pink bull, I think his name is Ferdinand. He comes in bright green, turquoise, white etc. Stray Dog Designs.

5. If you are creeped out by a 3 hooved stool there is always a 4 legged one! Noir Furniture
