Bonne Année 2012! It’s a new year and a fresh start. The blog got a facelift! I launched my website {check out my new website if you haven’t already}. And I’m back! Life threw me a curve ball a few curve balls at the end of 2011, and it was a rough few months. I’ll spare you the details, but I’m glad to say that I’m here, on two feet again, and ready to keep the design loving going in 2012. Je suis prêt  pour 2012!

Here are some finished kitchen pictures of the Chi O Sorority house at Vanderbilt University. With not a minute to spare, we started and finished the project in a bit over a month.

So bus driver, MOVE THAT BUS…

The girls decided on the cuisine industrielle in the  vert de terre  &  tan color scheme.

I chose stainless steel appointments, St. Cecilia granite countertops, two commercial faucets and sinks, industrial pendants above the commercial grade island and a warm walnut stained concrete floor.

One of my favorite details are these wood and metal stools from West Elm.

It was a fast, fun and fantastic kitchen renovation. We made our deadline and budget (well just about), and I loved working on the house because I felt like I was a Vanderbilt student all over again. Girls, can I come back in 2012 and work on the next renovation…croise les doigts {fingers crossed} !

I hope that your 2012 is filled with lots of joy, peace, love, riches and bonne santéBon 2012!
