Kitchen on my mind

With all of this cold weather I have been in the kitchen a lot a lot and my new obsession is the waterfall island and the two tier island that is very functional….very cool

Here are some of my faves

DO go chasing waterfalls….

The Stratford

House of The Day

59 Stratford Road

On a recent open house tour I was blown away with fellow agent Donna McElwee’s listing,  

59 Stratford Road in Harrison, New York.

The details, the grounds and the kitchen are absolutely stunning. If you like to cook or consider yourself a foodie or chef this kitchen is a must see! Two center islands, one for prep and one with seating all overlooking an expansive family room with tons of natural light. Oh and the front courtyard and back stone patio are something out of a movie. Did I mention the kitchen?

Check out the video and escape for a few seconds to Stratford Road

De-Clutter, Design Ideas, Kitchens

Are you Bikini Ready?

The Spring market is upon us and boy are things heating up! Here are a few ways to start DE-CLUTTERING your home and have it looking better than ever. First step, you heard me people get rid of the STUFF!

QUICK TIP: take a snapshot of your home on your phone and you will notice all the clutter building up around you


  • Rent a temporary dumpster  for your driveway or yard and PURGE! If you haven’t worn it, read it or touched it in the past six months throw it away (you wont miss it)
  • Go to staples or the container store and buy a cork board for those random pieces of paper that you just cant throw away. Invitations, receipts, tickets etc. 

  • Challenge yourself to CLEAR and I mean CLEAR your kitchen countertops. How about finding a cute candy jar or glass vase to store all those loose items you swear you use and need, lipstick, coins, pens, hair bands, the list can go on…. If its good enough to keep shouldn’t it be displayed right?   Also store unused appliances in the garage or basement you will create the look of a bigger kitchen.

  • The Garage, biggest catch-all of them all. Baby steps but use these images as inspiration!

The NOT so standard closet

So take that basic closet and make a real masterpiece out of it, you can really make a useful space out of a typical closet. Most of us don’t have a lot of space to dedicate to a home office, try something like this.

This one has a good clutter free look.

Nice to be able to close these doors!
