Design Matchmaker: Waterworks and Ken Fulk

By: Danielle Clockel

Love is in the air! We’re constantly finding designers, vendors, artists, and artisans to crush on, and sometimes a pair comes along that seems meant to be. This week we’re drooling over top notch kitchen and bath fixture supplier Waterworks and fearless interior designer Ken Fulk. Ken’s designs are fun and eclectic in the most sophisticated way, with a focus on the details. His color and material choices are unparalleled. Let us introduce you.

What do we love more: that curvy spiral staircase or the graphic black and white chevron tile floor? Together they compliment each other in a dance of natural tones and materials with dramatic contrast.

Talk about BOLD. Is a room with fierce green walls and ceiling plus metallic gold dining chairs and brass bar cart too much? In this case: nope! This room is one big, sumptuous feast for the eyes. Whew!

What a swoon-worthy mix of styles. The geometric, grid-like floor and minimalist-yet-elegant chandeliers give a modern touch to the grandeur of the two story chartreuse panels and glossy black reception enclosure.

We know, you’re totally in love, right? Who could possibly pair with such a unique and high quality combination of colors, materials, and styles? Introducing Waterworks…

Wooden handles? A subway and square tile backsplash? Together?? Where have you been all our lives?

All the contrast. All of it. White tile next to black tile. Horizontal neighboring vertical. Staggered vs straight. Bringing it all together is glamorous brass accents, including an industrial-inspired regulator knob.

This screams practical luxury. It’s just a shower, right? Oh but there’s black iron doors! And a wall of marble! We love the attention to detail and quality of materials in a space that’s meant for rejuvenating but often gets put on the back burner.

Ken Fulk, meet Waterworks. Waterworks, Ken Fulk. We think you’re a match made in design heaven, with your dedication to quality and keen eye for making even the smallest details special. If you haven’t joined forces on a project yet, we hope you do in the future!

Cookin’ Color: Bright and Bold Kitchens

By: Danielle Clockel

Kitchens are a big ticket item when it comes to your home’s resale value, and happen to be one of our favorite rooms to design. While a neutral white/grey kitchen is a timeless classic, we’re inspired by those who mix it up with unexpected color.

This sunshine yellow is about as bold as it gets! The calm grey walls provide a necessary balance to the brightness of the cabinets and allows them to really shine.

Maybe a kitchen full of bold paint is a little intimidating for you. Try choosing one piece to be your pop of color, like this lipstick-red Smeg refrigerator.

Want color and pattern? How about an unexpected take on a backsplash: bold wallpaper! In this look, the classic marble countertop and simple hardware keep the vibrant floral wall grounded without squashing its wild side.

Even with a small surface area, you can still make a big statement. Paint your upper walls a solid color, or get funky with positive and negative space.

Thinking outside the box when it comes to your kitchen can be a little daunting. Renovations are a big investment and contribute greatly to the value of your home, but you don’t have to completely sacrifice style! Sometimes a little bit of paint or a single wallpapered wall is all you need to breathe life into your space.

As we began preparing for our next open house, we were continuously inspired by the colors of France’s lavender fields. The purples of course grabbed our attention, but there are so many other hues within this striking environment that create a truly unique and beautiful color scheme. You’re sure to see these fresh, springtime colors in the studio at our next open house in April!
