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.

Palettes: Yellow, Gray and White

OK all, I’m about a day and a half behind and a dollar short this week, but I was just looking over a bit of yellow, gray and white on an inspiration board and decided to play a little bit on polyvore. Are you polyvoring yet? It’s so much fun but be warned, it’s very addicting!
