Design Notes

Hey kids! Looking for a way to tie in your turquoise Formica countertops with your red linoleum floors? BINGO. Just add jukebox. ;) Yep. We moved the full size refrigerator out of this Echo Park kitchen to get this bad boy in. We hid a mini fridge in the closet. Now that's a bachelor pad! (and a dream client!) I use it a lot of slab tables in my interior design. An ode to George Nakashima. And the raw edge and in this case thick table top is a great way to bring a natural element into a space. We sanded the finish off this to take it back to pure wood and just oiled it. Confession: A year ago I would have wanted to paint this wood so fast!! But I have been reading a lot about Japanese design and now I have been super drawn to wood cabinets. Which I of course put with everything ELSE white. Give me a simple bed every time. Especially in the morning...
