Kitchen Design Shaker Cabinets






One site I’ve visited what feels like a million times for inspiration is deVOL Kitchens.  Based out of the charming town of Loughborough, England, their kitchen designs are simple and timeless but still current.

Here are a few of my favorite deVOL designed kitchens.  They seemed to be known for their use of  shaker style cabinets mixed and various reclaimed woods and stains. Nothing they do necessary matches, but it all works beautifully together.  Thank you, deVOL, for creating approachable beauty.

Head to their website where you can purchase design services and kitchen/bath accessories.

I’ve been day dreaming of a European vacation and the Hotel Cort has me ready to book my trip to Spain…

Located on the island of Mallorca, in the town of Palma, The Cort is a little boutique hotel recently renovated to pure perfection by award winning Spanish designer, Lázaro Rosa-Violán.  Residing in a former bank building, the hotel is drenched in color, bathed in marble, and has hand painted tiles for the floors and private terraces.  Each of the 14 suites appears to be designed a bit differently creating a truly custom vibe for guests.

If you don’t go for the well appointed interiors, go for the lobby ceviche and oyster bar, loads of local wine options, perfect sunny climate and people watching…


Shop Cecy

Chic Design Boutique

Welcome to SHOP CECY. We launched our online design boutique as a place to explore and share the beauty we discover while sourcing the perfect furniture, rugs, art and accessories for our client’s homes and commercial projects. Our goal is to bring you access to products we define as livable elegance. We will constantly feature new, and carefully curated, fresh finds for your evolving home.

We will also be giving you access to THE BACK ROOM.  Sometimes we buy art, the perfect accessory or a piece of furniture on the spot because it speaks to us and we know it belongs in a Cecy J Project someday. Sometimes we use items for contract styling work or furniture is temporarily installed into a client’s home until their custom piece arrives. We will be bringing all those “extras” to you via THE BACK ROOM at SHOP CECY.

We are so glad you’re here with us and hope you enjoy access to what we’re up to everyday over at Cecy J Interiors.

Armada | Paint Color

gray, blue paint colors

Spotted on a recent trip to Santa Barbara… the lovely Armada Wine & Beer Merchant.  The wall color was killer (so I asked for the name) it’s Benjamin Moore, Silent Night.

The color was a mellow blue/ gray…  as the late afternoon turned into evening, it turned into a wonderful soft, quiet gray.

Decor, Laundry Rooms, Paint

Laundry can be a bit of a drag.  Okay, a big drag.  We decided to go bright and happy for a client’s laundry room to make the task seem a little more pleasant.

The color we chose was Sydney Harbor, Linen.  It’s the perfect bright color; not yellow, not green, just happy and inviting.  We went with really intentional large hardware for the cabinets… Since the room is obviously used with a lot of purpose, the hardware needed to reflect that.

P.S. If you like the rug we chose, you’ll soon be able to purchase it from Shop Cecy which launches in a few short weeks!  We will be one of the exclusive retailers in the US for this line.  Stay tuned, we’re so excited.
