So for #marketmonday i want to introduce you to the March work table by @unionstudio.sf —a custom crafted steel and oak marvel with custom leather accessories. I’ve been drooling over this thing for over a year—just need to find a client who wants one!! 😊 focusing on kitchen islands all week! Hope you follow along!

I love talking trash with my clients. You know what I’m saying...it starts there, and then the next thing you know we’re into recycling, composting...things that can take up a huge space in the kitchen and need to be thoughtfully placed. In this kitchen, we dedicated the short end of the island to recycling bins...not something I typically do, but then there is no “typical” Studio Dearborn kitchen! (I wish there were...boy, would that make my job easier!😂). Kitchen islands are going to be our focus this week, and you can hop over to the blog to read our latest take on freestanding islands. We’ll be talking islands all week, but not the kind with palm trees, if that’s what you were hoping!🌴 #thatroomiseverything #Kitchenremodel #kitchensofinstagram #kitcheninspiration #kitchenideas #kitchengoals #kitchenstyle #kitcheninspo #kitchenreno #kitchenlove #kitcheninterior #kitchendesigner #kitchencabinet #kitchencabinets #kitchendecor #kitchenrenovation #whitekitchens #modernkitchen #modernkitchens #cottagekitchen #kitchenisland #kitchenredesign #dreamkitchen #studiodearborn #hgtvmagazine #beckiowensfeature #kitchensofinsta #kitchenisland #recyclingbin #recyclingbinsofinstagram #storagesunday at Mamaroneck, New York

I’ve gotten some interesting inquiries lately about putting ranges in front of windows. You’ll see from my feed that I do this a fair bit...it’s a great way to give the chef a view while cooking! Other designers have asked about what blowers I use, how effective they are and whether the windows get dirty 😂. In this Larchmont kitchen we used a @best_range_hoods ceiling vent but we needed to drop it below the ceiling to avoid a steel structural beam. Depending on your ceiling, rafters, etc you may be able to get the blower flush with the ceiling...and yes we have found them to be adequate for ventilating...on my own kitchen if I’m cooking something that splatters a lot I’ll use a mesh splatter screen and keep it on the front burner...splatters rarely make it to the window. Hope this is helpful! I will share other brands we’ve used in my stories. They vary in size and sometimes it comes down to fractions of inches! @landinophoto .: .: #Designed #designlife #designing #designinspo #designsponge #designdaily #designhome #designlove #moderndesign #designblog #designoftheday #designideas #kitchendesigner #coastalstyle #modernkitchen #modernkitchens #modernhome #modernhomes #moderninterior #modernism #moderndecor #modernliving #moderninteriors #modernluxury #modernarchitecture #kitchendesigner #thatroomiseverything #eyefordesign #subzerowolf #arteriors

This week has been all about appliances...thank you @aitoroappliance and @dacorkitchen for allowing me to dig into the minutia of compressor speeds, infrared broilers, oven capacities, range hood ducting, steam oven reservoirs ...TG I love what I do because sorting out differences is SO HARD. So who out there loves their kitchen appliances and why? When you dig into the specs there really are huge differences between the brands, even comparing, say, 30” column refrigeration. Or 48” range tops, like you see here. It’s not even obvious what specs are important. Trust me, you don’t want to be changing your fridge 2 years into your new kitchen, and I know, because I’m changing my fridge 2 years into my new kitchen😂 @timlenzphoto .: .: #Kitchenremodel #kitchensofinstagram #kitcheninspiration #kitchenideas #kitchengoals #kitchenstyle #kitcheninspo #kitchenreno #kitchenlove #kitcheninterior #kitchendesigner #kitchencabinet #kitchencabinets #kitchendecor #kitchenrenovation #whitekitchens #modernkitchen #modernkitchens #cottagekitchen #kitchenisland #kitchenredesign #dreamkitchen #studiodearborn #hgtvmagazine #beckiowensfeature #kitchensofinsta #thatroomiseverything #homesohard #shakeupyourstyle #peepmypad

I just love how designer @nataliadesignuk brought a dose of color and bold pattern into this white kitchen by using this brilliant @phillipjeffriesltd wallpaper in the adjacent room. And because she actually REUSED the cabinets in this kitchen from another project, she is a double whammy #inspirationtuesday winner! Swipe to see the beautiful soft blue on the island and who would have guessed these cabinets were #repurposed ? For a chance to be featured please tag us at #studiodearborn !

When we needed help with styling this photo shoot we reached out to local business @villagemercantile and @therugcompany to help us. They did not hesitate to provide me with what I needed to style the space...which is one reason why shopping local is so important today on #shoplocalsaturday and every day. Vonnie can pick a gift for you, wrap and hand it off to you at the curb! @therugcompany will bring your rug out from the city on approval...and if you don’t like it they will take it back no questions asked! Just two examples of businesses we should be supporting! So please try to shop local today and every day! .: @macchiaphoto Interiors @staceykleindesign #Kitchenremodel #kitchensofinstagram #kitcheninspiration #kitchenideas #kitchengoals #kitchenstyle #kitcheninspo #kitchenreno #kitchenlove #kitcheninterior #kitchendesigner #kitchencabinet #kitchencabinets #kitchendecor #kitchenrenovation #whitekitchens #modernkitchen #modernkitchens #cottagekitchen #kitchenisland #kitchenredesign #dreamkitchen #studiodearborn #hgtvmagazine #beckiowensfeature #kitchensofinsta

Hope you all had a fun Thanksgiving! I’m jazzed to share this kitchen bar with you! Rift dawn oak with a very light stain mixed with back painted glass doors and tile by @artistic_tile. We mixed in a little brass with the @newportbrass faucet. The @kitchenaidusa fridge/freezer drawers are the best combination drawers i know in this size! @macchiaphoto Interior decorator @staceykleindesign .: .: #Designed #kitchenbar #designing #designinspo #designsponge #designdaily #designhome #designlove #moderndesign #designblog #designoftheday #designideas #kitchendesigner #coastalstyle #modernkitchen #modernkitchens #moderninterior #moderndecor #modernliving #moderninteriors #modernluxury #modernarchitecture #kitchendesigner #shakeupyourstyle #thatroomiseverything #peepmypad #dreamkitchen #kitchengoals

One of those times when you really miss your parents is when you want to brag about something without a shred of guilt. My dad always welcomed this behavior with great enthusiasm—it totally brought him out of his shell. We didn’t connect on a lot of things so this became a fun and ego-boosting go-to whenever we talked. So when I discovered this weekend that I actually had kitchens featured in 3 national magazines on the newsstand all at once I immediately thought “oh boy, I’ll have to pick up extra copies to send to dad!” And then that sinking feeling...when you realize they aren’t there anymore. So I lost a big part of my cheering section a couple years ago, but we all need someone to celebrate with—so perhaps that will be you? 😊. It was a big month, and I’m supremely thankful for the support from the design community, and our community “within the squares”. It’s kind of amazing to have complete strangers cheering us on, no? And to be doing the same for other complete strangers? Perhaps that’s why this is oh-so addictive! Looking forward to spending this long weekend with the family and friends we hold dear and wishing you the same! @macchiaphoto #Kitchenremodel #kitchensofinsta #kitcheninspiration #kitchenideas #kitchengoals #kitchenstyle #kitcheninspo #kitchenreno #kitchenlove #kitcheninterior #kitchendesigner #kitchencabinet #kitchencabinets #kitchendecor #kitchenrenovation #modernkitchen #modernkitchens #cottagekitchen #kitchenisland #kitchenredesign #dreamkitchen #studiodearborn #homesohard #thatroomiseverything #shakeupyourstyle #peepmypad #housebeautiful #bhg #consumerreports

For #inspirationtuesday I spotted this handsome kitchen by @sissyandmarley via @homeonanashvillehill, via @alchemy_newyork —a trifecta of accounts you should follow if you aren’t already...I love this kitchen’s dark dark rift oak cabinets, the @apparatusstudio light fixture and that really clever leg detail on the island in a totally different finish. And yes I could see cooking a turkey here 🦃😍.

If Santa is bringing you a new bath then here’s an idea for your wish list. The ultimate luxury bathroom item in my mind is this super practical well organized styling drawer with the @dockingdrawer powering outlet at the back. We designed this drawer custom but DD now has complete drawer inserts if your cabinet maker isn’t so adventuresome! With room for dryers curling irons etc and plenty left for tall storage too. (For those of you of a DIY mindset DM me for insert info) —it’s a rainy gross #storagesunday here in NY but a great day to get things done inside!

Every week I’m on the hunt for something, usually a bunch of somethings. This week it was a special pull for a pantry door, stools, and library ladder parts. Each search turns into a rabbit hole and I worry I’ll never emerge... so I thought it might be fun to share some insights every weekend in a new story segment on shopping, specifically for all those things you have to select when you redo your kitchen. This weekend I’ll share our hardware odyssey and then the great counter stool search, and we’ll go from there! On this project here, from 2011, we used @schaub_and_company pulls in polished nickel. I suppose this finish is now kinda “out”, but any time you buy quality such as these pulls I think you should have few regrets! @landinophoto #Cabinetdesign #cabinetdoors #cabinetpulls #cabinetrydesign #cabinets #customcabinets #designoftheday #dreamkitchen #hgtvmagazine #instakitchen #kitchencabinet #kitchencabinets #kitchendesign #kitchendesigner #kitchengoals #kitchenideas #kitcheninspiration #kitcheninspo #kitchenredesign #kitchenremodel #kitchenrenovation #kitchensofinstagram #kitchensofinsta #kitchenstorage #kitchenstyle #luxurykitchen #modernkitchen #modernkitchens #studiodearborn #customdrawers

With all the excitement this November (I’m talking about you, @housebeautiful 😊) I keep forgetting to appreciate that having our own home published in @betterhomesandgardens is such a watershed for me. I think it’s because the renovation was such a long process (stage one was the basement, stage 2 3rd floor for my sons room, stage 3 baths, stage 4 kitchen/first floor). And then the shoot was a full year ago...So we did the master bath as an addition in 2013, building on top of what is now the kitchen. We included 4 windows and a skylight, and to say that the natural light is the best feature is an understatement! The shower is under the skylight so I can see the treetops above. I’ve been thinking about wallpapering the space but there isn’t a lot of wall space so ...haven’t gotten anywhere on that. Wall color now is @benjaminmoore Classic Gray. SWIPE for the before! The original bath was the only upstairs bath shared by our family. 😱. Thank you @triagiovan for the stunning photo and @annamolvik for your expert styling!

So here’s another shot from last week’s reveal of our #shoreacreswearethere project. This one shows how the wide opening into the dining room transformed these spaces...there was no opening at all before! We all decided to keep a cased opening there instead of opening it wide up to keep the two rooms delineated. I love how the almost black island works with the client’s black lacquered dining room cabinet which belonged to her grand mother...tying together the generations. And that funky @serenaandlily light over the table 😍 .: @macchiaphoto .: .: #Kitchendesigner #frenchfarmhouse #thecottagejournal #farmhousefresh #rusticcharm #cottagekitchen #modernfarmhousestyle #cottageliving #rusticdecor #frenchcountrystyle #southernlivingmag #farmhousekitchen #kitchenlove #dreamkitchen #joannagaines #magnoliastyle #studiodearborn #kitchendecor #kitchencabinets #kitchenremodel #kitchensofinstagram #kitcheninspiration #kitchencabinet #customcabinetry #designsponge #rusticstyle #kitchenredesign #kitchenreno

Do you see cute dogs in a pretty kitchen or a pretty kitchen with cute dogs? When considering client’s needs, sometimes matching pet color is critical...jk! Just a happy coincidence that Torrey and Guidry were so perfectly color coordinated to their rift oak cabinets in this Rye kitchen renovation. We were thrilled the client wanted something a little different here, with the mix of blue glass doors and subtle rift oak cabinets. More of this reveal coming your way! It was a pleasure to work with @staceykleindesign on this project and of course the venerable @macchiaphoto begins the lens. .:Rug: @therugcompany .: #Kitchenremodel #kitchensofinstagram #kitcheninspiration #kitchenideas #kitchengoals #kitchenstyle #kitcheninspo #kitchenreno #kitchenlove #kitcheninterior #kitchendesigner #kitchencabinet #kitchencabinets #kitchendecor #kitchenrenovation #whitekitchens #modernkitchen #modernkitchens #cottagekitchen #kitchenisland #kitchenredesign #dreamkitchen #studiodearborn #hgtvmagazine #beckiowensfeature #kitchensofinsta

I never cease to be amazed by the inspiring designs coming from across the pond...in this case #minniepetersinteriordesign in an Irish country home. I love the simplicity and finish on these cabinets, the antique floors and all these black windows...just makes me want to settle in and bake a pie, you know? We are finishing a kitchen in Armonk now with a similar oak cabinet style...fresh and timeless at the same time. Thank you @minniepetersdesign_ for these #tuesdaykitchenvibes !

For #storagesunday today I’m tackling the corner storage conundrum. Lazy Susans, blind corner pullouts, drawers...they all have their pros and cons. I’m posting a video to my stories of my favorite corner storage unit and the pros and cons of each, and then up on the blog today is a review of more favorite storage ideas. Good thing it’s a Sunday where you have nothing better to do than read up on organization!!!😂 📷 @macchiaphoto and me #Cabinetdesign #cabinetdoors #kitchenstorage #cabinetrydesign #cabinets #customcabinets #designoftheday #dreamkitchen #hgtvmagazine #instakitchen #kitchencabinet #kitchencabinets #kitchendesign #kitchendesigner #kitchengoals #kitchenideas #kitcheninspiration #kitcheninspo #kitchenredesign #kitchenremodel #kitchenrenovation #kitchensofinsta #kitchenstyle #luxurykitchen #modernkitchen #studiodearborn #customdrawers #magiccorner #hafele

Spending my day working right here today because no one else is home so I get to enjoy the warm sunshine through the skylights. A big part of the drama in this space is this huge print by @bryannashgill called Acorn. I began talking to Bryan about making a purchase in early 2013. I am an enormous oak tree fan and felt such a strong connection to him and his work. I hesitated on my purchase for a couple weeks and then reached out to close the deal. Bryan didn’t respond. I was surprised so I googled him for another contact number, only to discover his obituary in the news. I was devastated, and felt even more strongly that a piece of his work belonged in my home. His widow, Gina and an art dealer helped me purchase a piece eventually—this print sort of reminds me of my two boys, and it’s name is meaningful to me for my years of helping kindergarteners to grow trees from acorns. So to say that your art should have meaning to you is an understatement for this piece!! I just wish I could have had the chance to meet Bryan. @triagiovan via @betterhomesandgardens Styling @annamolvik #Kitchendesigner #frenchfarmhouse #thecottagejournal #farmhousefresh #rusticcharm #cottagekitchen #modernfarmhousestyle #cottageliving #rusticdecor #frenchcountrystyle #southernlivingmag #farmhousekitchen #kitchenlove #magnolia #dreamkitchen #joannagaines #magnoliastyle #studiodearborn #kitchendecor #kitcheninspiration #designsponge #rusticstyle #kitchenredesign #farmhousemodern #farmhousestyle #farmhousestyledecor #bryannashgill
