Design thought for the day – I just love certified kitchen designer Susan Serra’s attitude toward trends:

You know what’s cool about blogging for a long time? Getting to meet bloggers online and then in person. Every now and then I have the great pleasure of meeting someone I’ve known online for years.

I think I bumped into Certified Kitchen Designer Susan Serra online about eight years ago, following her kitchen design blog. We later became Facebook friends and I always felt like I knew her, but it wasn’t until yesterday at Coverings in Atlanta that we actually got to meet in person.

I am now kicking myself for not getting a picture of the two of us, but the reason I bring up Susan is because before heading off to Coverings this busy lady was down in New Orleans covering The Kitchen and Bath Industry Show, a.k.a. KBIS. She carefully documented all of the trends she spied down there and shared them with the world in right here.

Susan spills everything from what’s hot in hardware and finishes, cabinets and colors, appliances and layouts, even styles for different types of people from different generations. She’s even thrown in the kitchen sinks, and plenty of accessories for it! She’s figured out the useful ways to curate and interpret the trends practically, has photographed miles of products and even included some gorgeous shots she took of New Orleans that make me long for a trip down there.

If you’re thinking of remodeling your kitchen or just want to give it a low-budget refresh, the meticulous slideshow she’s put together will inspire you. Take a little work break and check it out.

Thomas Wold Mushroom Coffee Table

I had the chance to catch up with Thomas Wold, who goes WAY back with this company, last week for another site I write for, and I wanted to share the interview with you in case you didn’t see it. Thomas is just such an amazingly creative dude, and one of the nicest coolest people around. These images are of some of his pieces that we sell here (click on the images to link to how to buy them if you’re interested). The interview is here.

When it comes to blogging, I’m not too big on giveaways, unless it’s something I really believe in and would want to win myself. This is one of those times. The folks over at Simplify 101 were so pleased to see their e-course mentioned this week, that they are offering FREE enrollment in a week long e-seminar to two lucky Hatch readers! Because it starts in a week, the deadline for entering will be at noon on Wednesday, May 19. Just leave us a comment telling us you need help getting organized and you’d like to participate and we’ll pick new names at random on Wednesday. If you want to give any of the details about your mess, PLEASE SHARE! I’d love to hear it, because it makes me feel better about my own organizational stumbling blocks. You’ll need to have some time cleared each day to dedicate to getting organized. Here are some details and links:

Whether the state of clutter in your home has you overwhelmed to the point of not knowing where to start, or you’re ready to turbo-charge your organizing efforts—the simplify 101 “Help! I Don’t Know Where to Begin!” workshop, beginning Thursday, May 20, 2010, is for you! This workshop is designed to give new users a taste of simplify 101’s online workshops. Best yet, this workshop includes a coupon code good for $5 off your next workshop purchase! There’s a whole new way to get organized!

I cannot tell you how much I’ve accomplished since starting another Simplify 101 workshop;  it’s been very motivating. It literally makes you feel lighter and more free. If you are ready to start getting organized but don’t know where to start, leave a comment before noon (that’s east coast time) on Wednesday May 19. We’ll contact the winners that afternoon.
