white kitchen with dark wood floor and a stainless steel wall covered in magnets
A stainless steel wall in a bright Seattle kitchen is the perfect place for those magnates you usually see on refrigerator doors! (above)

I was on the website of interior designer Laura Bohn…searching through her portfolio when I came across these three images. Cute fun innovative design ideas.  I like the idea of taking a material or finish that has typically been seen one way and using it differently.  Here are three SMART DESIGNS!  Take a look!

Den with white walls, floating shelves and a fireplace with the fireplace surround painted with chalkboard paint
Chalkboard paint is used every  where these days but I’ve never seen it used on a fireplace surround…way to warm up the setting with some nice words! (above)
commercial metal shelving cart converted into a bathroom sink base
Okay…I have never seen this before…commercial metal shelving – a cart with wheels –  repurposed  into a  bath sink base! (above)

What do you think of these clever design ideas?  Like or dislike?  Can you imagine using any in your home?

I like the stainless steel wall the best I think!

Happy Monday!


P.S.  Don’t forget to follow along on COCOCOZY Pinterest and see what new photos I pinned this weekend!


  1. Stainless steel wall is my favorite. very practical for all the fun family photos, kiddie reminders etc…rolling vanity looks cute, but would we really want to roll a vanity someplace?

  2. Loving these spaces. I like the metal magnet wall in the kitchen too! It’s a nice way to share all of the cool places you and the family may have visited (and I’ve never been a fan of magnets all over the front of the fridge so this is a great compromise!) Love the blog, You rock! xoxo
