Awhile back during the design process, I have found this online program Autodesk Homestyler to help me visualize my kitchen. It's really easy to use with pre made models of cabinets, furniture, windows, doors ...etc. It's pretty damn close to the actual kitchen. I'm so impressed.
After a long wait for city inspection and green inspection(yes we have to do that in LA), fast forward to week 21!!! If I could recall a time during this renovation that we feel hopeful and happy, this might be it. Not only we have walls, but we also have cabinets!! I couldn't be more excited.
I'm proud to say that I have a kitchen. Or at least the outline of what soon to be my very first renovated kitchen ever. We use custom cabinets from this awesome cabinet maker, Oscar Corleto. Since we have all built in fully intregrated appliances, we were told that custom cabinets are more budget friendly in that case. This wood hood is turning out to be really nice. I didn't expect to see it before I actually get the hood insert.
This is what you see when you enter my kitchen. What a great decision to put a door there. I can see the backyard from here. This opens up the room so much.
We asked for breakfast nook and we got it! It's pretty small. This would seat about 3 people at most. But that's what we could squeeze in to this space.
I'm crazy about this, lift up seats. Great great storage space for us.
This is my master bedroom. The faux beams I asked for are up. Everything is looking great.

Samma jewelry was developed by Anna Sandin. I love these jewelry because they made from non precious materials put together in the simplest design. I find these quite artful.

Dog bed or dog nook, whatever you call. These are just perfect combination of 2 things I love. What can I say. I have a thing for built ins. With this I don't have to hide my dog's crate in a corner anymore. It's neat to have a designated area for my dog. I would have to steal this idea for my house!

7eleven brand takes a retro approach. Dark green and stripy patterns with a hint of "7" are just some reminder of good old 70s graphic designs. Too bad you can only see this Stockholm, where people are not afraid of bold colors. Don't go look for 7eleven here in the US, all you'll see is just white and fluorescent.
