Projects I Want to Live In

>> Tuesday, August 16, 2011

I am working on a project right now in the South End that I'm pretty sure I am going to want to live in when we are finished. Don't you love projects like that?

It's a tiny little place, and most of the industrial imagery I've been posting lately has come from things I am sourcing for the project. When I tell people that I'm an interior designer they always ask me what my favorite style is. Honest truth, I do not really have a favorite, nor do I care to "specialize" in one aesthetic. That seems so boring. But my this week favorite is the whole industrial chic deal. I love it.

I'm mostly pumped about how the space planning worked out. I bet if you walked through this space empty you would not think it could fit a six person dining table. but. it. can.....

 Like I previously mentioned, the stools swivel down from bar counter height to dining table height. So we're getting a two for one out of those.

This project is in a new building, so my end is mainly decorative. We are doing a custom pot rack I'm pretty pumped about. Pot racks are something I never really thought much about until this project.

Now I think about them all the time. Do you have a pot rack? Does having pots in your face ever bother you? One of my clients is tall (the husband) and the other is short (the wife). She needs to be able to reach the pots (reasonable) he needs to be able to get water without having a pot hit him in his face (also reasonable) It's become and interesting little design study.

Steph, my dad and husband built our potrack out of regular old black plumbing pipe and hung it between two counters in our kitchen (there's a pic in my fb house folder). The pots hang out of our way, but in reach for both of us, above the window. Our project was cheap, but with your skills, you could design a fancy version and it'd be super cool! -Katie Fitzmier

I think a pot rack can be a great space saver. I think it can work in the right setting. I also think a drawer at just the right height can be both functional and less cluttered. We rented a ski house with a pot rack over the butcher block and it worked, but did not hold all of the pots.
