Here’s What I Love … old dog/new (laminate) tricks

Here’s What I Love … old dog/new (laminate) tricks

 

Laminate is not new.  In fact, its been around in homes for decades as table tops, counters, wall paneling and yes, floors.

Enter the new era of laminate with the recent KBIS show in Orlando this year. MIND blown.

This humble product, relegated to basements and laundry rooms everywhere has a new lease on life provided by Wilsonart

Would you believe everything in this photo is laminate?

How about this photo? can you spot the laminate?  is it the counters?  The backsplash? What about those cabinet doors?

Take a gander at this shower. Pretty splashy right? (pun intended)

Yep.  Laminate.

I will caution that with laminate and these applications your fabricator and installer must be top notch.  This is not your basic installation, so skill and finesse are of utmost importance.

Wilsonart also has a custom door program, which was a complete revelation.  No minimum order.  Any combination of finish and style, all to my specification. There is nothing designers like more than the ability to work with a company ready to bring your vision (whatever it is) to life.

Laminate doors

~note to all the modernists out there.  The Wilsonart black Traceless laminate is superb for a sleek black cabinet look we all crave but shy away from because fingerprints.

Never thought I’d use innovative and laminate in the same sentence but here we are!

  • What’s not to love here? 
An intimate space in an open plan with these client chairs we reupholstered in luxurious printed velvet and creamy soft leather.  Add in books for days, meaningful art and a wood fireplace? Magnifique!

A serene classic family home for these lovely humans

  • This quick getaway to Montréal was a dizzying delight.

Lazy mornings walking the streets; delicious meals in inspiring interiors; spending time with old friends, and new.

Also the decadent hotel sheets at @legermainhotels have me heading to @simons for a set or two for my bed.

Big ❤️ to @ensembliers @damask_dentelle @michellecarangi @suzannelizabeth @alannadunn
