What to Look for in a Great Dinnerware Set

They may not have the power to make or break the taste of food, but a good set of dinnerware can enhance a meal by making it look amazing. It’s OK to splurge a little since you might be seeing each other at least three times a day. When you’re ready to start picking out yours, be sure to get dishes that will fit on your shelves and inside the dishwasher. Those with classic taste who want to get a little creative should start with white plates and add splashes of color around it. Don’t worry about buying separate sets for everyday use and for more formal dinners, and if you look for open stock rather than pre-packed sets of a certain size, you can customize your collection to suit your personal needs.

7 expert kitchen design tips to make cooking a delight

“WE SPEND SO much time in the kitchen,” says kitchen designer Marie Browne. “But we don’t ask ourselves, how are we using this space? How could we be using it better?”

For most households in Ireland, the kitchen is where life happens. Not just cooking, but everything from the morning scramble to afternoon schoolwork; from lazy lunches to late-night conversations. 

We asked Marie – a designer with Cash & Carry Kitchens – for her tips on designing a kitchen that makes life easier, not harder. Say goodbye to cluttered worktops and make awkward storage a thing of the past with her expert advice. 

1. First, make your ‘must-have’ list of appliances

The first step, says Marie, is to look at the things that you really need. “That’s where the design process really starts,” she says. And it’s crucial to be realistic. “If you’re a family of four, you don’t want

This Entire Home Was Designed Around a Hot Pink Sofa

It’s not uncommon that homeowners come to designers with a list of “must-haves” prior to renovation. But for this Philadelphia family, their “big ask” was especially specific: “They wanted a pink velvet sofa,” recalls designer Michelle Gage. The wish proved an apt starting point for what would turn out to be a “bright and cheerful home,” as the designer notes, “something we need more of in 2020!”

Designer Michelle Gage created a colorful and durable home for a Philadelphia family with two young children.

“They’re big art lovers, and they were really excited to splash that around, to have lots of color,” explains the designer. But, from a practical standpoint, “they also have two little kids, so they wanted everything to be really durable, while still looking like a piece of art.” Read on to see just how the designer achieved that.

Multiple High-Tech Applications Shape the Design of a Celebrity Bar Consultant’s Latest Venture

When Jon Taffer, the award-winning hospitality expert and host of the popular TV show “Bar Rescue,” decided to open his own restaurant and bar, Taffer’s Tavern, his team enlisted some of the latest technologies in terms of software and kitchen equipment to develop a craft cocktail and chef-driven concept.

That includes using 3D/virtual reality technology for designing the bar to be as efficient and labor saving as possible.

The first location was set to open in March, just as COVID-19 hit. That opening in Alpharetta, Ga., has been delayed, until this month. (The location will open with outdoor seating and reduced seating indoors).

Spec. 1. Krowne Zero Step Speed Stations

Kitchen of the Future

Taffer teamed up with Duncan Miller Ullmann (DMU) to design the inaugural Atlanta location, which will serve as the prototype for other, planned franchise locations set to open in the next two years throughout the Boston and Washington, D.C. markets. The layout features

Workshop/APD and April Bovet Interior Design Team Up on a Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Gem

Each of the five boroughs contains a constellation of neighborhoods with their own cultural quirks and pervading personalities. In Cobble Hill, ethnically diverse mom-and-pop shops and traditional brownstones entwine with a boho art scene, yielding an old-school yet forward-thinking Brooklyn vibe. It’s here that Workshop/APD founding principal Andrew Kotchen was given the opportunity to nestle a unique piece of architecture between two 1900s town houses, at once putting into relief the district’s dual natures.

“It’s rare to get the chance to run an intelligent design process that isn’t based in historical preservation,” Kotchen says of the ground-up plan he conceived for his client, a married couple with two teenage children. After performing initial zoning

Kitchen ripe for renovation? Take heed of these inventive ideas that use statement stone, accent colours and glorious wood, showcased in a host of creative guises. Inspiration starts here…


A floor treatment that’s more commonly seen in exterior spaces, crazy paving is the latest eye-catching surface to be reclaimed by interior designers and architects, and not only for its practical, hard-wearing properties. In this project by Studio Esteta, irregularly shaped slabs of slate inject subtle texture and movement – the perfect foil to the smooth swathes of oak and polished blue-grey stone above it – and lead the eye from the monolithic island to the matching marble-wrapped nook on the rear wall.
