Modern Kitchen Cabinets

- house inspiration, let's build a house, trend alert, Uncategorized

Let’s talk modern kitchen cabinets. In our family the kitchen is the central part of our home, the place people linger to grab a snack or sit at the bar to finish homework. It needs to be functional yet pretty. Inviting yet stylish. Your kitchen cabinets will set the style, tone and feeling you give this central part of your house.  I don’t think you can never go wrong with classic traditional cabinets but my heart will always have space for modern kitchen cabinets. The clean, sleek look gets me every time.

We had a cabinet guy up at our new house last night and it had me thinking of what I’d have in my dream kitchen. Besides having lots of cabinets that I can organize the crap out of, I found some really cool inspirational pictures that do modern kitchen cabinets perfectly. Here’s what I’m thinking.

Color

White. I adore bright white space but lets not get too carried away. I could show you countless all white kitchens that look fabulous but if I am going to live in a space, I need a little color to warm it up. I love my doctor, but I don’t want to live at his office. Okay, that was lame but you get the point. Let’s start with stark white walls and warm it up a bit with some browns and warm grays. We are thinking of doing white upper cabinets by the stove/hood and a modern brown on the island on the refrigerator’s wall. I’m obsessed with these brown colors and the modern horizontal grain in them that contrast the bright white.

Cabinet Styles

Nothing says modern kitchen cabinets like horizontal lines. We saw it in the wood grain, but let’s add another horizontal in the way we hang our cabinets. I like the idea of switching up the directions and doing some cabinets horizontal and some vertical. The longer pulls accentuate this horizontal cabinet style too. And please, let’s not overlook having a couple glass doors. You can’t see exactly what’s in these ones, which is nice, but it gives the cabinets an ultra cool feeling.

Shelving

We will have an entire wall of cabinets with nothing else on that wall except a fridge at the very beginning, so I had to get some ideas of how we can break the cabinets up without losing on storage. Ideally, I’d love to have no upper cabinets but practicality takes over. I think my dream kitchen would have so much storage, I’d finally have a spot for all my cake stands. The best solution I’ve found is having open backsplash up to open shelving with some fee floating cabinets above for storage. That would give an open shelving feeling so I could display some of my cute plates but still looks clean and modern. What would you do?

Desk

I always have papers and bills that need a home and somehow always end up on the kitchen counter. I love the idea of a desk in the kitchen to hide the paper clutter. These desks integrate into the cabinets seamlessly without standing out as an eyesore. It’s like a hidden gem.

Other Ideas for Modern Kitchen Cabinets

Doors and Hardware

A perfect modern kitchen has a flat paneled door and sleek hardware, in my opinion. Nothing fancy or curvy, just straight lines do the trick.

Lights

I love it under the upper cabinets and it’s a cute surprise in the silverware drawer.

Toe Kicks

I adore these white cabinets with a wood toe kick.

Organization

Pull out drawers, garbage can drawers, utensil separators and this drawer inside a drawer idea is genius. My favorite storage find so far though is keeping your dishes inside a drawer instead of a cabinet. This would be brilliant with little ones around.

What do you think? What elements would you include when designing your modern kitchen cabinets?

Confetti Party

- party, trend alert, Uncategorized

It’s no surprise I love confetti (and parties) so this next project was a no brainer for me. Let’s talk about having a confetti party, shall we? I double dare you to find someone who doesn’t like confetti. It’s cute, playful and can fit any party color or theme. It’s the perfect addition for, well anything. Stick it on a present with two sided tape, embellish an invitation, spread it on the tables, have a confetti Photo Booth with confetti props, make some confetti cannons, confetti poppers, confetti filled balloons, put it into your flower vases, make confetti banners, food that looks like confetti (aka sprinkles)… the possibilities are endless.

I was invited to share my confetti party tips on Studio 5 recently and since then have incorporated some of the projects into Confetti Night (more about this amazing women’s conference here). So, I decided to do a quick recap of some of my favorite ways to incorporate confetti in your party and create a confetti party of your own. It’s totally on trend right now and I don’t think little bits of confetti happiness scattered around a party will ever go out of style. You want a crazy awesome party theme but don’t want to break the bank? Why not make confetti the star of the show?

Here’s my video from Studio 5 showing a few of these ideas in action.

Besides some of the ideas showed on Studio 5, I also added a bunch of confetti greatness to Confetti Night this year. Here are some of the details…

These are the tables and I think the hint of confetti added the perfect amount of fun to finish off each table.

Awesome ideas on how to use confetti in your next party! Throw a confetti party!

Such a fun confetti party table with felt balls in milk vases and honeycomb tissue balls. Handmade confetti and honeycomb tissue balls on tables at this awesome confetti party!

Confetti balloons are such a simple way to add a finishing touch to a party. Make your own confetti and add it to a clear balloon (a funnel works great) or you can find different colors of confetti balloons in the party in a boxes found in the shop.

Tons of ideas of how to use confetti in a confetti party!

I love myself a good balloon arch and one that looks like giant confetti is a win in my book. This Confetti Night balloon arch by Darling Street was ah-mazing and would steal the show in any confetti party!

We also hung lights and paper cut in fun confetti shapes to drape behind the speakers and to hang quotes from.

Are conferences worth it?

- happenings, Uncategorized

Welcome to your first glance at Confetti Night. I won’t even tell you how many of these beauties you’ll see there. Maybe enough to fill a swimming pool, maybe not. I guess you’ll just have to see. Is anyone else as obsessed with tissue paper balls as I am?

I’ve gotten the same question over and over these last few weeks, “why?” Why do I do what I do? Why put in all these hours of work for a silly conference? The answer will always be the same. It is worth it.

I’ve been to a fair share of conferences myself and I always leave with the same high, a type of motivation and excitement. A conference lets you use parts of your brain you thought you left on the graduation stage all those years ago. You get a chance to leave everything at home, (bills, soccer practices, responsibilities) and reflect where you are in life and where you want to be.

There’s something really empowering about knowing more today than you did yesterday, that your brain isn’t idol and you really are that smart person you thought you were (that AWESOME person you know you are). There’s something really cool about sitting in a class and knowing the speaker is speaking right to you, you are the only one in the room. It’s not about changing who you are, just helping you gain that confidence you’ve tucked away somewhere.

Here’s to progress and never settling for mediocrity or staying the same. Let’s fall in love with learning, fall in love with bettering our life.

I introduce to you Confetti Night. A day conference for everyday women to become better, get inspired and have one heck of a good time. Let’s make some friends, learn, and create epic memories! To me, these moments are life changing and the reason I’ll happily stay up countless nights organizing a silly conference. I’ll wear my dark under-eye circles proudly. I want everyone to feel that high and become motivated in their life again. Experience Confetti Night with me.

Are conferences worth it? You are worth it!

A Drool-Worthy, Modern Boy’s Bedroom – part 1

- bedrooms, let's build a house, trend alert, Uncategorized

Part 1 of 3 of The Perfect Modern Boy’s Bedroom

What’s black and white with energy all over? Let’s talk about designing and decorating a little boy’s room, shall we?

Hi, my name is Mitzi and I have three boys. Three. So, you better believe I love myself a well-done modern boy’s bedroom. For heaven’s sakes, in the next year we’ll have three to design (plus their playroom) so we are looking at a lot of masculine decorating around here. Because of that, I’ve done a lot of researching and finding out what elements make or break a boy’s space.

Because my boys are still small, I want their rooms to be able to grow with them. That might mean a little more mature designs to begin with, but that’s okay with me. I figure if the basics are classy, the accessories can be made more age appropriate so they can be easily changed out and they won’t grow out of their rooms so quickly.

If you have ever met my kiddos, you’d know they are as different as night and day and I want their rooms to reflect that. My oldest is a dark haired, dark eyed, go-with-the-flow, sensitive type. My middle boy is a blonde haired, blue eyed, laugh-your-face-off tornado type. He’s into everything and is the one that keeps us on our toes. My baby might be somewhere in the middle or an entire different breed. We’re still deciding on that one, but boy is he a doll. However these boys end up, I want their rooms to be them and reflect their personalities.

The struggle? I want to juggle having a spot that promotes fun and imaginations with being practical and thinking about storage and cleanliness. Practical combined with style. Learning combined with playtime. Sounds easy enough, right?

Add all of these together and what do we get? A drool worthy boy’s room.

Let’s talk about my three favorite elements I’ve found in a boy’s room. Come back for part two and three to cover the other six elements.

  • 1. Black and white
  • 2. Geometric
  • 3. Accessories and styling
  • Floors/rugs
  • Pendants
  • Crazy beds
  • Textures
  • Unexpected elements
  • Storage

1. Black and white

I love the playfulness of this look. It’s clean and modern and such a nice starting point to work with. A blank slate that, if done right, can really make your accessories pop. I adore the warmth the natural wood adds to this space and the contrasting of colors.

2. Geometric

It doesn’t matter if it is on the wall, on the floor or anywhere inbetween,  geometrics add interest and create structure in a space. This wallpaper is perfection.

This mature nursery will be fun to grow into. The overlapping geometric designs on the curtains, pillow, stool, rug and crib all add an unexpected mishmash of adorable. I can’t wait to layer crazy patterns together.

3. Accessories and styling

I love to see accessories that tell a story and show the personality of the owner. Accessories are always fun especially ones that add a little warmth too (I can’t get enough of wood, little pops of color, greenery, natural elements, different textures, etc.). This is especially true starting out with black/white or any neutral space. This room did it with the bed and the table and it turned out ah-mazing!

The Valentines 3D Letters

3D letters from Happy Confetti, Valentines prints and xoxo - Love party decor for Valentines Day

Here’s the directions for making your letters. They are easier than you’d think. Just cut them out and fold in all the “jagged” edges first. These edges will be what you glue. I ran a ruler across my folds to keep them clean and scored.

A trick on the heart, make sure you fold across the top as well as the jagged edges (see picture below for details). It almost looks like a geometric heart this way but it goes together much more easily already folded.

Tip for the O, glue the inside ring before the outside so it’s easier to get at.

Once you glue the jagged edges on each side, connect the ends and glue on your faces and you have yourself a cute craft to display! If you get stuck, see the pictures for help. Xoxo!

 

 

Your finished product!
