It’s not a secret to anyone that I’m a huge fan of the TV program Fixer Upper and of the renovations Joanna Gaines & Chip (her husband) do. This before & after contemporary barn renovation was so great that I decided to share my insights with you. Also, I’ll give you 3 tips to help you understand what makes it a great design.
Combining images found online to insert later on my inspirational design board is an activity done on a daily basis. It’s a practice that keeps my inspiration flowing and excited.

Hey there! Today I wanted to share with you the nugget of knowledge I learned while scouting for some transparent bar stools for a project.
As a designer I have the tendency to do a very in-depth research when choosing almost anything for my work. This obsession, hoarding information, usually becomes handy when deciding what works best for each case since every interior renovation, architectural design or landscaping requires its own set of specifications- or specs, as we usually refer.
OK, so now let’s get right to the heart of things.
The product I’ve been looking for is: Bar stools for a small apartment I recently finished here in Manhattan (curious? some pictures here).
- Requisite #1: No more than 26″ height.
>>> Why? for a good fit you need at least 9″ of freedom from your tights (when seated) to the bottom of the countertop. This is what ergonomic design shows as the perfect fit for our body posture. Interesting, isn’t it?!
Dealing with a residual space next to your kitchen? Consider a kitchen banquette.
This is a practical approach to create a more intimate and informal dining area to enjoy first time in the morning with your loved ones.
