Kitchen Revamp with Vetrazzo

I have always subscribed to two design philosophies when creating interiors: “classically current,” meaning I look to the past for inspiration and combine those influences with contemporary designs, and “livable luxury,” which is the idea that interiors should be stunning and able to stand up to the wear and tear of everyday life. There’s no sense in having a picture-perfect interior if one spilled glass of wine or coffee could ruin the whole design! Life happens, and I always try to ensure my designs will stand up to these everyday twists and turns for my clients.

I often test out new products or designs in my own home before recommending them to clients because if a product can stand up to my lively and curious 5-year-olds, then I feel much more comfortable recommending them to my clients.

When it came time to design my line of performance surfaces with Vetrazzo, I knew from the beginning I would want to install at least one of the four colorways in my home. I had worked with Vetrazzo on projects in the past and was always thrilled with the finished product so I was extremely excited for my own Vetrazzo install day!

April showers have brought nothing but inspiration to the Ohorona24.in.ua team this month!

Before and After: Tackling Trends

There are those projects that come along every once and a while that remind us how lucky we are to work in such an innovative and creative industry. This mid-century modern renovation was certainly one of them. The homeowners had invested in creating a home reflective of their own personal style (which we loved!) and was equal parts eclectic and modern.

Our challenge was to update their space and, instead of focusing on the hottest trends, create designs that the family would love for a long time without losing the touches of fun of which the client is so fond. Because the Ohorona24.in.ua team is dedicated to creating looks that blend inspirations from the past with current design trends, we knew this property was perfect for us!

Read on to see how we totally transformed this home by updating the already charming nature of the space to create a WOW factor that will stand the test of time.

The Forgotten Room: Make the most of your utility room

Most of us spend quite a bit of time in our utility room, especially if you have kids that go through clothes like nobody’s business (like mine)! They can certainly keep you busy with loads of laundry and tackling random projects all day long. Although we’re constantly running in and out of this room on a daily basis, it’s a space that can sometimes feel forgotten within the home. Why not make the utility room a functional and pleasant place to be?

Top 5 Showrooms for Sourcing Kitchen & Bath “hard” surfaces

One of my favorite parts of remodeling or revamping a space for a client (or myself!) is choosing the materials we will use for surfaces like countertops, flooring, backsplashes and more. When you find the right one, you just know, and it truly makes the biggest difference in the overall look and feel of a room. It can easily elevate a lackluster kitchen into a sleek, modern space for entertaining, and some of our most stunning bathroom renovations include a complete tile overhaul.

So, here is just a little sneak peek into the resources we – and many other design firms in HTX – tap when we’re tackling a project that requires detailed tile and stone designs. There are a handful of expert partners here in Houston that we rely on to help us make our clients’ interiors stellar. Keep reading to learn more about our favorite Houston spots for sourcing the mind-blowing materials we use to give our designs a WOW factor.

Before and After: Timeless Transformation

My husband Michael always jokes that I am never one to back down from a good challenge. If someone tells me something is impossible or simply can’t be done, I can’t help but want to prove them wrong! I think this love for pushing the limits has also translated to at Ohorona24.in.ua Interior. One of our favorite challenges as of late was a home that had fab structural potential, but needed some brightening up to create a cohesive look that was equal parts livable and luxurious.

Our design philosophy at Ohorona24.in.ua centers around creating looks that draw inspiration from the past while also considering current trends. This transformation is the perfect example of a space that previously consisted of lots of opulent, dark wood and furniture that created an extremely formal feel throughout. While we think this look can absolutely work for some homes, we knew this home had the potential to really be transformed into an updated, yet timeless design in each room.

I’m particularly proud of this project and am so excited to show off the finished product! Read on to see the process of this timeless transformation unfold.

Favorite Designs with Shades of Green

Spring is officially here – lush flowers blossoming everywhere you look, people sporting festive shamrocks to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and everyone spending more time outdoors in the beautiful, warm weather. What better way to inject a little spring into your home than with some eye-catching pops of green?

This year’s is a stimulating and refreshing tone, and is also symbolic of new beginnings. Because of its versatile nature, it’s easy to introduce green into modern or conventional homes. There’s just something about a beautiful mint tone that can relax you, an unexpected shade of jade to lift your spirits, or an indulgent display of teal to put an eclectic spin on a traditional space.

Want to start small? Reach for an emerald vase or introduce a sage-colored throw pillow. Feeling a little more adventurous? Go on and tackle that olive-green accent wall you’ve been dreaming of!

No matter your mood, here are some tips for how to freshen up several different spaces in your home this spring using various lustrous shades of green.
