Featured Home Project: Tutto Interiors


This month we’re delighted to showcase a lovely new home project by Cheryl Nestro, Principal Tutto Interiors, Northville, MI.

Located in Howell, MI, this new 10,000-square-foot residential project was, essentially, a blank slate for Cheryl to bring her design vision to life. The clients contracted her to work with them from conception through final production on everything from architectural details and finishes to complete furnishing and styling.

Cheryl oversaw it all, including two complete kitchens on the main and lower level; a grand entranceway with dual staircases; a formal, Paris-inspired living room, and a transitional master suite.  She also designed the home’s formal library and a two-story master bedroom closet – choosing Habersham custom cabinetry and furniture for these spaces.

Houzz Kitchen Trends Study | Not Just For Cooking

According to a 2016 report from Houzz, the  majority of renovating homeowners report that they use their kitchens for a variety of uses. Beyond cooking, baking and eating, many entertain, socialize and do work or homework in their kitchens. Given all of this activity, it is not surprising that nearly two-thirds spend over three hours a day in their kitchen.


At Habersham we have long believed that the kitchen is the true heart of the home.  That’s why we work to help our clients create warm, welcoming kitchen environments that  are beautiful, functional and versatile.


Our custom capabilities ensure that we can help customers create spaces that are truly built around their lifestyle needs.

NKBA Survey Says Transitional Style Bathrooms Among Most Popular Trends For 2016


According to the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) 2016 Design Trends Survey, clean, modern style and neutral colors dominate North American bathroom design today.   As reported in the association’s press release, here are the top 10 overall bathroom trends NKBA expects for 2016:

Clean, modern, transitional designs

Universal design features

Neutral colors

Open shelving, floating vanities and wall-hung toilets

Built-in storage

Undermount sinks

Freestanding tubs

Shower amenities like hand showers and shower lighting

Polished chrome faucet finish

Electric radiant floor heating and a number of other  amenities

According to the survey, transitional is by far the most popular bathroom style, outpacing 2015’s top contemporary style trend by 10 percentage points. Nearly 70 percent of NKBA designers surveyed expect to specify transitional style bathrooms in 2016.

Neutral colors dominate the bathroom, with white being the most popular fixture color and whites and grays being the most popular overall color schemes. Seventy-nine percent of members surveyed indicated grays as the most popular color scheme, with whites/off-whites trailing close behind at 77 percent. Keeping with the popular neutral-tone theme, beiges/bones were specified by 65 percent of NKBA members surveyed.

We are certainly seeing some of these trends play out in a number of projects we’re working on with our design partners.

Pantone Releases Fashion Color Report For Fall 2016 | Will Home Colors Follow?


Pantone has released its Fashion Color Report for Fall 2016.  We always enjoy reviewing and studying these tones and watching how they gradually make their way into the home, too.

As reported by Home Accents Today: Illustrating “A Unity of Strength, Confidence and Complexity,” the season’s 10-color palette is inspired by “the desire for tranquility, strength, and optimism,” led by the blue family, Pantone said.

The Fall 2016 colors are:

  • Riverside
  • Airy Blue
  • Sharkskin
  • Aurora Red
  • Warm Taupe
  • Dusty Cedar
  • Lush Meadow
  • Spicy Mustard
  • Potter’s Clay
  • Bodacious

“Along with anchoring earth tones, exuberant pops of vibrant colors also appear throughout the collections,” Pantone explained. “Transcending gender, these unexpectedly vivacious colors in our Fall 2016 palette act as playful but structured departures from your more typical fall shades.”

The different shades each have significance, noted Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

“Blue skies represent constancy, as they are always above us,” she said. “Grays give a feeling of stability. Red tones invite confidence and warmth, while the hot Pinkish Purples and Spicy Mustard Yellows suggest a touch of the exotic.”

Featured Home Spotlight | Kern and Co Home Project


Our latest featured home project, a a 7,000-plus- square-foot estate in Rancho Santa Fe’s Rancho Valencia Country Club, is a beautiful design project by Susan Spath, Owner & Principal Interior Designer, Kern & Co.  Interestingly enough, it wasn’t the first time she’d worked on this particular home.

Knowing she had overseen a complete renovation of the property a number of years prior, the new owners looked to partner with her to shape the vision they had for their new home.  As Susan explains:

“The couple knew I had been the designer for the previous owners, so they came into our store to talk about a total renovation. I took them to my own home, which I use as a showroom, to give them a true glimpse of how I envision furniture, Habersham cabinetry, accessories and fabrics working together in a real setting. They loved what they saw and wanted to capture some of the same bright, light looks in their new home.”
