I love a farm sink and it hurts me when I can’t convince my clients to use one. My favorite is the Rohl Farm sink in white. This time I decided to use something different. I found a beautiful Nickel Farm sink. It may require a little more maintenance but certainly worth the effort as it is stunning. It doesn’t hurt I had it set in a fabulous Carrera Marble countertop with that large grey vein running thru it certainly beautiful. I used classic nickel pendant lights plus a Rohl nickel faucet completes this classic kitchen design. Hopefully the new family that moves into this home will appreciate this classic design that will stand the test of time.
Some houses just won’t sell. Sellers ask why wont anyone buy my house?? If your home has been exposed to the market in all the right areas Internet, realtors MLS print Facebook etc then why haven’t you had an offer. Three things price,condition and location affect the sale of a home. You can control the first two. If homes have been selling in your price range then why didn’t someone pick you? Reminds me of when I was in high school and didn’t get asked out 1. I was unattractive! Is your house ugly do you need to update your paint, carpet lighting or door hardware? Look closely at your home as a buyer would find all the negatives and fix it! Make yourself the most attractive house you can be in this market because beauty matters. Make sure you are priced right it doesn’t matter anymore what you paid for it or what you did to update it buyers are like old boyfriends they just don’t care about you and how much you spent. Don’t expect buyers to pay for your updates but hopefully those updates will make you look better than everyone else and you will get an offer. Don’t forget your first offer is your best offer so hold tight if you get one and make it work!
Who doesn’t love old buildings and a cute thatched roof. I spent a week in Ireland visiting my daughter Lauren while she studies abroad for one semester. It has been so fun. Irish people are so friendly and happy. I loved the country side more so than the city. I looked for something that resonated a design inspiration and struggled maybe because I drank too much beer and ate too much brown soda bread and Irish stew! Anyway the thatched roof cottage where I ate lunch was interesting design concept as well as the beautiful gardens and stone castles. Enjoy!
Here are three things I am using in my new house project that will help I think set the design direction for the rest of the house. I have a huge love of farm sinks as anyone that knows me isn’t surprised. My sink of choice over and over is the English farm sink by Rohl. This time I am branching out and using this beautiful one that is nickel plated. Stepping out of my comfort zone but I think it is gorgeous and will look great in the new white kitchen with you guessed it a marble counter top.
