Quite possibly the best name ever for an interior design firm. HONKY. Sounds like Christopher Dezille, who started this firm, enjoys what he does and has fun with it. He’s based in London, and his portfolio is so chock-full of design goodness that I had a REALLY tough time deciding what photos to use. There’s modern, mid-century, contemporary, glam…a little bit of everything. He has designed some of the most incredible kitchens I’ve ever seen. Check out his for much more than what I’ve posted below.

Every week it seems like I have a new photographer crush. Is it right for a grown woman to be swept away by a portfolio? Well I don’t care. I’m loving work and I just needed to share. Love the light, the angles, the sense of movement and fun. Don’t miss the party portfolio.

This blog chronicles my entire kitchen renovation from start to finish. Greentea Design has provided me with their solid wood , and I’m taking care of the rest.

If you’d like to be brought up to date, check out my for an archive of previous posts. In this post I will show you sketches of the cabinets I chose, what my cabinets cost, and the process involved with ordering kitchen cabinets from Greentea.

In my last post I showed some of the sketches Greentea created to demonstrate how my kitchen will look. Here is one for a recap.

I thought I would show the sketches that were designed by Greentea that include the dimensions of each cabinet ordered for my new kitchen. This first one is the that will be next to the fridge. I love it because Mike suggested instead of having 3 drawers the same size, that the drawer on the left be 3 smaller drawers for take out menus, chopsticks etc. The cost of this cabinet is $1200.

Modernism’s form and function meet comfort and colour in LA based designer work. As his website says, “Laser…. believes that both living and working spaces are meant to be enjoyed in the great tradition of design. Utilizing thoughtful, beautiful and complimentary layers to create a timeless environment.” These rooms show his philosophy of living within great design with timeless modernist classics combined with artisan pieces and the handmade. It’s cool and young and appeals to the artist within. It’s the “New Modern” following on from the Mid-Century Modern.
