I’m a huge fan of ceramic tiles in any context, and I’m counting the days until I have a place where I can install some. When Cat sent over her gorgeous kitchen remake, I was so thrilled to see such a bold use of tile. The deep ocean color of the tile is a perfect contrast to the black, white and copper. Apparently this is just the start of things, as Cat is planning to renovate the whole apartment. If Cat’s design sensibilities in this lovely kitchen are a preview of what’s to come, I’m sure the whole place will be absolutely stunning in no time. Great work, Cat! — Kate

I’ve always wanted a mudroom or at the very least, a decent entryway of some kind. I’ve also recently decided to stop wearing shoes in the house, and this decision, while good for the rugs, has only made the need for a mudroom more acute. I’m greatly inspired by this makeover from Jodi, who turned part of her garage into an airy, organized and stylish landing place for her family’s gear. I especially love the little details, like the vintage elements and the accessory bins labeled with photographs. You can see more images of the finished room here on Jodi’s site. Nice job, Jodi!
