Hello and happy Friday afternoon. Thrilled that it’s the weekend, I need and am craving some down time after a very busy week catching up and working on many different projects, both big and small. We all need time to recharge and since we are busy with believe it or not our holiday collections, my brain is on sensation overload:) Anywho, from time to time post on these “design details” posts. where I will focus on a specific design detail that I am particularly fond of. It can be an architectural element, an accessory, type of furniture, wallpaper, basically anything that strikes my fancy related to design. Today’s topic is all about metal hoods. I had the good fortune to experience having a custom metal hood first hand and what an incredible experience it was. I have Classic Custom Metal Works to thank for that, namely Cindy Mullen the principle behind the firm. I cannot rave enough about Cindy. Her professionalism, quality of product, communication was unrivaled. But you know what I loved most? It was her unbelievable investment in making sure I not only got what I wanted (and it surpassed my dreams and expectations) but in making sure it was perfect. And it was! I have always loved the look of metal hoods and knew one day I would find a reason to have one. So happy we did it for the Palmetto Bluff house, it really does make such a beautiful statement and the finish, style, everything about it was exactly what I dreamed of. So thought it would be fun to take a look at metal hoods in various shapes, colors and kitchens. And if a metal hood is in your future, I cannot recommend Classic Custom Metal Works highly enough!
