The narrow shape of the kitchen feels lighter and brighter thanks to white upper cabinets, some with glass doors, and big windows. The lower cabinets have a pale gray wash, a pretty blend with the appliances' stainless steel.
This friendly, low-key downtown market is a charming way to connect with locals and stock up on some foodie souvenirs. The Alpharetta Farmers' Market held Saturday mornings April-October features plenty of items to cobble together a little picnic or shop for some jams, homemade wares, candles and other items to take home with you. Better still, the downtown is ringed with locavore boutiques and restaurants to grab breakfast or lunch, or find unique home goods, art and apparel.
Instead of going to the pumpkin patch, head to the grocery store and see what produce inspires you. Small acorn and pattypan squash have almost the same shape as pumpkins, making them appropriate for an arrangement like this. Keep your options open. Figs, mini apples and pears, grapes and artichokes can all be used for decoration (and eaten later!).
As seen on HGTV's Good Bones, the kitchen in this space has plenty of storage and counter space. The upper cabinets in the space are stacked, decreasing the wasted space that is found in regular cabinets, providing this kitchen with more functional space. Butcher block cabinets, kitchen bar and stainless steel appliances add to the elegant design in the space.
Fall is traditionally the time to celebrate a bountiful harvest. Put that bounty on display by using beautiful fruits and vegetables in a variety of colors and textures to create a lavish centerpiece that spills across the table.
When arranging produce, alternate colors, textures and sizes to create a display that looks as delicious as it tastes. In this centerpiece, artichokes, grapes and plumcots are arranged around a large bosc pear. Try to find produce that is unique and seasonal, although it's OK to mix in some imported, out-of-season fruit as well!
Solid-surface countertops are intimidating because they usually come with a large price tag. A trick for getting a custom and budget stone countertop is to search stone yards for remnants. Remnants are smaller pieces cut from slabs, and they're often sold for a fraction of the cost since they're considered waste from more elaborate installations.
