Seg 3 – Christopher Kennedy Segment


Listen to Seg 3

CHRISTOPHER KENNEDY INTERIOR DESIGN w/ Christopher Kennedy re; 707 Tahquitz Cyn., Palm Springs.
– QUESTION from the “Joey Pals”.
1. Can you re-do kitchen cabinets in chocolate colors? (Rich brown is back. Perhaps to paint. Less expensive than tearing out the cabinets. Nice warm taupe, soft grey is in. Deep forest green, peacock blue, new backsplash etc. are good ideas.)
2. Joey wants to know about a hammered tin backsplash? Cool? (Go for it.)
3. Joey wants to know about a butcher block counter top? (Perhaps an accent piece. Stone is still the gold standard for countertops. Butcher block has to be maintained. Natural stone is coming back. )
4. How do I make my home more sustainable? (Great resources; www.sustainablefurnishingscouncil.org and www.goodweave.com for rugs.
