… into works of art.
We are talking about Kim at Twice Remembered!
(Kim is currently taking abit of a blog hiatus, however I will be letting her know she’s been featured. I’ll sprinkle a few quesitons here and there through this post, and hopefully Kim will have a few moments to comment and add any of her own personal thoughts!)
When Kim entered her kitchen vignette post, on Saturday Nite Special #2 on vignettes, each picture had me in utter awe. Not only are her photography skills the ultimate, her vignettes and staging are simply high end magazine quality.
According to my findings on her blog, Kim started blogging in 2004. She moved into quite a fixer upper and utilized her blog to journal and document the progress of the renos.
Now in 2009, she’s still hard at it, currently taking abit of a blog hiatus so she can put her efforts into the renos. I can’t wait to see the eye candy that will no doubt be forthcoming!
So let’s take a little walk further into Kim’s blog.
You already know about her exquisite kitchen. I never tire of looking at these gorgeous pictures. The first time I saw the red cabinets, I was in total and utter love. The red creates such a unique feel you don’t see every day.
“Kim, you’ve put red cupboards on the blog map! They are exquisite! How do you feel about the red today with the world currently revolving around neutrals?”
And then there’s her creative livingroom. In her words, “The more I researched the many different cottage styles, however, the more I realized how much I loved (and needed) a very simple, soft, and romantic color palette.” She certainly has achieved that. Make sure you look at her mirrored wall.
These curtains are white sheets. In this post she tells you how she does it. One of Kim’s Tips: don’t iron them. Awesome…
Kim is also busy building a studio in her home. Have you ever seen prettier stairs before? This link will take you to her studio during the process of her renovation.
And what is her incredibly beautiful studio being used for you ask? Not only is she a decorator and great photographer, she has another amazing talent.
She creates faux treats! You read that right. These delectable morsels are not edible.
Kim says, “As you may know, I’m starting my own little business. I’ve always wanted to help out with the family budget in some way, especially from home and preferrably doing something I enjoy doing. Because of the great interest that has been expressed by many folks, I’ve decided to mainly specialise in making and selling my faux candies and other confections.”
She also creates whimsey with her treats. Isn’t the gumball machine the cutest idea for a display on your counter?!?
“Kim, will you be selling your faux creations online anytime soon?”
Let’s step outside for a moment now and enjoy her ‘garden dresser located on her sunny porch.
In her words, “I thought it (the dresser) would warm up the front porch – it along with the red chairs, so I gave it a good coat of primer and have applied one of two coats of exterior semi-gloss paint. Our front porch is covered but I do want to give the dresser a little added protection. I plan on opening the drawers and inserting various, colorful potted plants, and letting ivy, etc. cascade down and around.” What a lovely idea!
As you can see, I could go on and on. Feel free to investigate Kim’s blog on your own. If you take the time and read her writings in depth, you’ll gain loads of wonderful insight on what inspires her towards her dreams.
Kim, I just want to say, it was a pleasure featuring abit about you and your blog! Thank-you for inspiring us to
