As we continue our discussion of trends in kitchen design, materials and appliances, it is interesting to note that kitchens are combining a mix of cutting-edge technology and materials while also incorporating “retro” designs and a wide array of colors.  Long gone are the days of avocado and gold appliances and in addition to stainless steel, kitchens are sporting appliances in a wide array of styles and colors.  KitchenAid just introduced the industry’s first-ever black stainless steel finish which they term a “new neutral look”.

TMS Architects recently had the opportunity to work again with  Rob Karosis to photograph an unusual architectural project that Shannon Alther, TMS principal, worked on recently.  The homeowners of this beautiful home and barn had lived in the area for years and were thinking seriously about downsizing…apparently all they really needed in a new locale was access to the internet and an airport.  However, the more they thought about leaving the area, the pull of family and grandchildren was hard to ignore so they came up with an ingenious solution in lieu of leaving the family home.

Cristina Marias, TMS Architect’s interior designer, took these progress photographs recently of a TMS home in the final stages of construction before the homeowners move in for the summer.  Built by CM Ragusa Builders, it is a lovely renovation with gorgeous ocean views from the upper floor and on a beautiful summer day, it was a perfect  spot to visit.  We will be professionally photographing this residence very shortly but wanted to share some “teaser” pictures with you.

The fireplace often takes center stage in a room, but the mantel can just as easily become an area of interest with the right design and materials. As the place where you display family photos, prized possessions and, of course, your unique sense of style, giving some extra thought to your mantel is well worth it.
