Hey Guys!

These are photos of my renovation for CBS Better Mornings Atlanta shoot. Many shout-outs to Kaveh from Designing Home for helping my Cave come to fruition and Yamini of Urbanmotifs for the custom seating cushions and pillows for the seating area.

close up of metal flowers, they make me smile
the flooring is porcelain, 12X24 tiles in graphite, depending on where you're standing you can see hues of grey metal, chocolate brown, shimmery copper
another view, thought it went well with the accent wall and the stone blacksplash
view from the kitchen
you're drop ceiling doesn't have to be boring there are many styles to choose from and you can paint any color you can imagine, don't forget to paint the framework
entrance door, found at a salvage yard - around 300 bucks!!
hardware is everything, it cost more than the door though
another look at stove w/heat lamps on
yes, I can't get enough of this!
hey, I'm a caterer okay :)
seating area next to stove, swivel wood & iron bar stool, candy apple red bar stools, and a stainless steel prep table
left side of kitchen w/copper sink
faucets w/sprayer & istant hot water (insinkerator)
isn't this the cutest sprayer ever, son noticed it looked like a little hammer and goes quite well w/the "hammered" copper sink
my favorite thing in the whole kitchen, extra deep, double hammered copper sink! Isn't it to die for!
overhead shot!
hardware is everything! also the stone backsplash although rather neutral is very complimentary
double draw dishwasher, another thing I always wanted, now can someone show me how to use it! This came from a direct Sears website that my husband has access through his employer, we get 11 items per year at deep discounts - 500 cheaper than retail! Most large companies offer this to their employees.
Kenmore Pro double gas oven, did you know in November and March -April most Sears appliances are 50% off. The stove, double oven and glass door frig where less than 6K! All Elite or Professional grade.
This stove actually was a closeout, so I got it even cheaper, 4k stove for 1700.00. There was a floor model that was even cheaper, 1500 but a boxed one from the warehouse was only a couple hundred more - so I went for it.
yep, got a griddle pan and a flat top pan also!
yes, the coke radio works
thirsty anyone
variety, the spice of life
costco hhad these for 7 bucks!
so I just had to get more than one!
beverage area w/cabinets above, lighting inside and beneath cabinets
I've had this "indulge" sign for years and used it for many of my catering events at home and for clients, now it has a permanent home, it's nice to hear stories from friends that have seen it throughout the years
super, duper larger double oven - electric HALF PRICE People! Don't overlook Sears on your next appliance hunt!
the stoppers don't come w/the sink so don't forget to pick some up when purchasing another sink and if you're using a disposal there's a different kinda stopper - these puppies set me back a cool 100.00, didn't plan on that so add it to your budget
the detail of this sink is awesome, also it was a dual mount, which means I could have had it beneath the granite, but choose above because it was nicely finished and less work - no altering cabinet and doors below!
sorry,, just one more shot of the stove
hand carved wood accessories from Italy - Tuesday Morning for the low, low
ain't they sweet, glimmery, candy apple red bar stools, but the price is the sweetest $49 bucks!!!!
the knobs sold me on this oven!
had seed glass custom cut and placed in each window and glass shelving, make sure your glass is tempered for safety, Doing it yourself instead of the factory cutting the doors for opening saved me 90 a door!
sexy, sleek and copper!
instant hot water by "Insinkerator" - this is a must have if you're like me and to lazy to boil or wait for the water for tea or any other time boiling water is needed - get the filter add-on it doesn't come w/kit
who doesn't like fresh popped popcorn, and from a replica old fashion machine at that!
after the shoot, I removed started removing the wood casing around poles and seating area, upgrade photos to follow, but this was the only way I could give you an overall view of room
seating area w/Natuzzi Italian Leather Sofa, got this baby for half off, it was custom made for someone, but they built w/chaise on wrong size! It also has a queen size sleeper bed!
Another view of area
yet another
shoe tray, these are a must have if you like ppl to remove their shoes when entering your home, most are hvy rubber trays, found this copper color metal one for 17.99 @ Tuesday Mornings
floor seat cushions, same place Tuesday Mornings - 39.99
pillows make the diference in all designs, neutral sofa, went w/big bold pillows w/different textures; the front pillow was made by Yamini!! - go girl
another view
notice this is a reverse of the other material, we (Yamini & I) choose to use the backside of the material, isn't it snazy!!
okay, this is my French inspired metal antiqued flower table, I LOVE IT! People either hate it or love it, what do you think!
The bathroom, orginally had a toilet and sink, moved the toilet to opposite side of room to where sink was, moved sink to middle of room and added shower
really like the niche in the shower
antique coke chest to store/hide all those bathroom xtras
wanted to give a little pop to the shower, added "picture frame" w/copper accents
closer view
fire place on accent wall, inset, electric and actually warms the entire room
wanted focal point, had this wall in middle of the room, so I had this stone installed
textured and tile placement was the key to adding excitement
view of accent wall w/fireplace and bench - was so warm and cozy, I fell asleep on the bench wrapped in my thick bath robe and faux fur blanket
wall
barn door in 'real red" and brown glaze
on rollers, used as bathroom door
isn't it the coolest
texture is everything! Yamini bench cushions!
5 custom made cushions and accent pillows

my metal flowers above bench
these are Yamini's pillows
