Jo Saltz New Jersey Kitchen

“People will live with a bad situation for so long,” says House Beautiful editor Jo Saltz, who was doing just that before she embarked on a six-month renovation to fix up the most-used—but admittedly most-dated—room in her family’s New Jersey home: the kitchen.

Flash back to early 2017, when the Saltz family bought their house and were immediately tripping over themselves to make breakfast. “It’s like Grand Central in here,” said Jo’s husband, Scott. That was a problem for what Jo calls “a family who loves food.” (In addition to House Beautiful, Jo also oversees the food website Delish).

In summer 2019, designer Jean Stoffer (whose style Jo fell in love with on Instagram) used her tried-and-true design questionnaire to come up with a game plan based on the family’s habits and needs. She then worked—cross-country; Stoffer is based in Grand Rapids, Michigan—with local contractor Eric Grier of Right at

    Country Kitchen Design – Pictures and Decorating Ideas

    Pictures and Decorating Ideas

    Country Kitchen Design Ideas: Some kitchens are made to be admired at a distance; country kitchens are made to be used. Their down-to-earth style and lived-in looks make country kitchens among the most comfortable and inviting rooms to be in.

    Country Kitchen Design
    Mismatched chairs at the kitchen table, a farmhouse sink with a fabric skirt, oak hardwood floors, butter yellow walls, and a red brick range hood add character and charm to this country style kitchen.

    Essential Elements: Farmhouse sinks, beadboard panels, and open shelving are trademarks of country kitchen designs. Knotty wood cupboards or painted and glazed cabinets with simple styling provide a traditional country feel that’s not too stuffy. Popular cabinet styles include the standard raised panel or beaded flat panel cabinet doors with a simple frame.

    Setting the Mood: Sometimes rustic and often cozy, country style kitchens have a timeless and natural appearance.

    Small living room and kitchen design combo ideas

    Combination design is one of the most useful ways to maximize the space of a small house. It recognizes the facts that most spaces are only used in certain times, which creates a lot of idle time for that particular time. By combining 2 functions, such as a living room and a kitchen, the usage time of a space increases dramatically. This concept is particularly useful for small houses as it means that one common space can be used for multiple functions, thus making it unnecessary to have the necessary floor space to cater to all functions at once.

    In this article, we will look at 7 different ideas on how to combine a small living room and kitchen together.

    Spring Kitchen and Family Room

    Spring is finally here in the South! We’ve had a lot of rain and that’s good for the plants outside so it should be a very lush season here for Spring flowers and shrubs. We have worked so hard on that master bathroom that it’s such a relief to finally have it finished. I’ll be sharing the bathroom next weekend! I did manage to decorate the house for Spring by adding a few touches in the family room and kitchen buffet. These are all things I already had so I try to put them together in a different way every season. It’s sort of fun shopping your own home!

    I hope you all are doing OK with the craziness that has gripped our country right now. It feels so surreal to be living with this Corona Virus scare at this time, but it’s a real thing and we all have
