Wake up Minnesota!

by Lauren Setum, Allied Member ASID
At LiLu, we believe in basing our designs on the architecture of the home in which they will live, as it is indicative of the type of furnishings and finishes that should be selected for a space. Here in Minnesota, we are lucky to have the opportunity to design kitchens and baths for homes that have been around for decades. Many of our local neighborhoods have  century-old houses that, while often in need of a face lift, have an integrity and history that can not (and should not) be ignored by the designers who update them.
In a state that finds itself facing chilly temperatures for half the year, it is only natural that many Minnesotans gravitate toward the warmth of traditional and transitional interiors. Today, however, we're going to focus on a different aesthetic. Take a look at some of the fabulous modern kitchen products that are available to us here in Minnesota. I encourage you (if your architecture permits!) to consider waking up and having a cup of coffee in one of these streamlined, crisp kitchens. These products can be found right here at IMS through Valcucine Minneapolis.

Go green! Who said a modern aesthetic can't have warmth?

Breaking boundaries!

Where's the wine? There it is...behind the trees!

Hard to not be organized!

See the curved white cabinet to the left of the oven? It's closed...

Aaand open, ta-da!!
