If you know me, you know I love style in any form. I'm, of course, a fashion fanatic, but I appreciate beautiful design anywhere I see it, including in the home. My home is a true reflection of my aesthetic and while I adore every nook and cranny as I have put my heart and soul into the overall look throughout the years, I'm always on the hunt for new elements to add to my family's space. And like most women, I'm a sucker for a beautiful kitchen. That's just where LG appliances come into play.
I had the pleasure of attending an event centered around LG's Black Stainless Steel appliances recently and I do believe I've found my new stylish home design must have. Don't get me wrong though...Just because I focus on style as much as I do doesn't mean I discount function. When it comes to appliances, I want them to fit seamlessly into my kitchen, while at the same time, be completely reliable. It doesn't matter how pretty your kitchen is if you can't depend on the appliances you need to make it function.
While at the event, I was able to chat with HGTV design stars David Bromstad and Emily Henderson. I asked them for some words of wisdom on putting together a seriously stylish kitchen and this is what they had to say...

The Best Overnight French Toast Recipe
We've hit the winter lull--that lengthy stretch of season with no plans, no parties, nothing to do, and nowhere to go. I have to admit that at first, I welcomed the quiet obligation-free weekends of January. After the nonstop hustle-bustle pace of November and December, my family ...read more
David: "I start with appliances and then go to cabinets. Lower cabinets never match upper cabinets. Brass hardware is awesome. It's ok to mix metals, shows a collective interest."
Emily: "Beach is in my vocabulary . "Eclectic coastal kitchen" is modern with rustic elements. I start with the color palette. Black is a neutral, it helps ground everything. Slick and simple counter. Use an old door for a counter. Appliances should match."
Considering you can find a wide array of appliances from refrigerators to ranges,dishwashers and even microwaves in the Black Stainless Steel finish, you can take both of their advice and put together a lovely matching suite with black as your kitchen's chic neutral starting point.
