It’s Fall Y’all!

The crisp air is swarming in, the leaves are changing colors, and days are getting shorter. Football is the first thing we think of on a Saturday morning, and the smell of pumpkin enriches our morning coffee. Fall is here!

The time is near and dear that we bring the family back into the kitchen for some tricky Halloween treats or festive Thanksgiving meals. Keep the warm fall feel, throughout the year, by combining the muted colors of fall into your kitchen through cabinetry. Take a look at some of the fall inspired colors we offer here at Wellborn Cabinet, Inc.

Apple Crisp

The red, cherry wood brings out the color of the leaves as they ever so gracefully fall off the trees and lay peacefully on the cool, damp ground. The island is finished off with a caramel java stain with a glaze. The maple wood with a sage mocha finish seems to fill the air with the smell of maple syrup drizzling out from the trees.

Coffee Bliss

The espresso finish warms the room and complements the smell of coffee on an early weekday morning. The lower lighting produces an amber glow that stirs in the pumpkin colors that are screaming for excitement as family and friends gather around the island ready for pumpkin carving and painting.

S’mores Galore

As the night comes to a close, gather around the fireplace while the rich sable finish on the cabinetry sets the mood for a warm evening full of marshmallow roasting, s’mores making and festive movie watching family time. Fall is bringing the family back into the home where it all started.

Involving Clients in the Creative Process

Originally posted on KBtribechat:

KBtribechat host Gloria Sollecito finds that the best projects are successful collaborations between clients and trade professionals. This includes ways to create kitchens that reflect not just a designer’s concept but a homeowner’s vision as well. Most of her clients, even if not DIYers, like to be involved in the evolution of the design. It is very much about collaboration, personalization, customization, flawless function, emotional and visual appeal. Join us for #KBtribechat on September 9th as we chat about collaboration and how clients are involved in the creative process.
