This kitchen and dining space sits at one end of a very large great room with 20' ceilings at many points. A focal wall with black and white geometric tile grounds this kitchen and gives it warmth. It is a lot of pattern, but it is well balanced with the many white walls around it and it really works in this very modern farmhouse. The hints of brass create another visual pop to draw the eye toward the cozy island seating.

A stunning great room that needed to be visually grounded in order for it to feel at all warm and welcoming. The ceilings are 20' high and it is a very long room between the kitchen and living area. The fireplace is the major focal point by using stripes of black cement tiles mixed with wood that echoes the color of the oiled oak floors. From there it was easy to keep the major pieces neutral and to add pops of color and metallics with the accessories.
Brown marmorated stink bug has been in the United States 20 years, and in that time it’s spread throughout the Mid-Atlantic, Upper Midwest and along the West Coast. Stink bugs attack many home garden crops, including beans, corn, tomatoes peppers, apples and raspberries. Their feeding wounds fruits and veggies, resulting in corky spots that are inedible. Stink bugs spend winter inside, invading home voids and attics. With their stinky personalities, these bugs stir up drama indoors when they emerge from hiding in hordes, usually in winter. In the garden, knock stink bugs into soapy water to kill them. Indoors, the same method works, or you can try vacuuming up the stinkers (which might make your vac stink). Another indoor option is using a dry-mop cleaning tool (think Swiffer-type) that you cover with duct tape, sticky side out. That device gives you reach to grab stink bugs climbing curtains, walls and ceilings.
