According to industry experts, a minor kitchen design and remodeling is in the top 5 most important home improvement projects this year which has average cost of $22,507. The experts are recommending various things like home design and improvement projects to give the homes the correct revamp, especially the kitchen.

Suzanne Cook, owner of NYC-based Atmosphere Kitchen & Bath, who specializes in high-end yet functional spaces in a city where average apartments are under 900 square feet, has a specific and essential tip to give. She says that by lining the wall adjacent to a kitchen with base cabinets as well as upper cabinets, people will get additional storage.

Spaces Design kitchens, one of the high end kitchen design studio, considers the kitchen is the focal point of the home. Kitchen is a workplace thus some components tend to get cluttered or dirty. The sink can then do a disappearing act by hiding with a sliding wood counter-top. It also doubles as an eating area when open. Sliding wood panel can be attached that can hide cabinets to create a smoother aesthetic.

Value engineering is needed that is use of visual components that seem high-end but are actually affordable. As the real wood veneers can be pricey, the laminate manufacturers have come out with unbelievable options that look and feel like real wood without the cost. Another tip is to update the hardware, starting with the faucet. A dishwasher can be installed too as it is not a pricey upgrade, costing $400 to $700 on Home Depot’s site to buy new, plus around $200 to install.

SPOTLIGHT: Sweet vinyl by DREAMOUR

What happens when two immensely talented visionaries come together to create elegance and ingenuity in a sculptural glass fragranced candle? Dreamour. That is the long and short version of how Dreamour was created. Founded by Karissa Rowe and Neal Klotsman in late September 2022, Dreamour was founded with the goal of creating a luxury fragrance brand that operates at the intersection of functional art in the candle market space.

Rowe, a Parsons School of Design graduate, set out to fill the niche of integrating design in the candle marketplace. Unlike most candle vessels that are mass-produced, Dreamour’s founders desired to prioritize the artisanal craftsmanship of glass in their production processes of the sculptural glass designs. This resulted in a long timeline of sourcing the globe for talented glass artisans who could transform a sketch into a functional and sophisticated candle vessel. Each and every candle vessel is hand-blown, inherently resulting in a one-of-a-kind product and unique experience for the consumer. These functional fragrant candles also act as a piece of décor due to its sculptural and alluring appearance.

Sweet Vinyl, Dreamour’s first candle scent, fills the room with musky & leathery notes combined with earthy notes of vetiver and cypriol, topped with a citrus touch of bergamot and mandarin. The founders worked with master perfumers in Grasse, France, to create a scent that invoked notes of memorable moments, emphasizing high quality ingredients in the fragrances in a soy wax blend. This resulted in candles that consist of clean ingredients, a vegan formula, and is entirely cruelty-free.

It is the personification of the glass blowers’ spirit, the heart of Grasse imprisoned in a bottle, and the narrative of two visionaries that sets Dreamour at the top of the candle market pedestal. Dreamour embodies the sophistication and savior-faire French perfumery as a luxury brand, while being a NYC based brand. Dreamour is currently stocked at Patron of the New in New York, along with other major designer luxury known brands. Rowe and Klotsman are currently expanding their production lines and will drop new fragrances and designs in early 2023. Don’t expect anything ordinary with Dreamour, as they will continue to bring a unique perspective to the marketplace of home fragrances.
