Just Saying...



It's Personal
The Nelson Family has one old tradition that Kat has been serving her daughters since they were very young....warm vanilla milk.  It's still a favorite they ask for as soon as the weather turns cold.  Polar Express Hot Chocolate is a newer tradition.  The recipe was found on Pinterest a few years ago...a crowd favorite for all ages!

Bring milk and sugar to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved.

Home for the Holidays
What other saying immediately conjures up the idea of a roaring fireplace, friends and family, holiday feasts, and a warmth that feeds the soul?
This is one of our favorite times of the year for so many reasons.  Many of us have holiday traditions that have been passed down through generations.  Others have created new traditions to be enjoyed and passed along.  However you celebrate, this time of year is about bringing family together.  It is about taking the time to sit and share stories, reconnect with friends and family and savor the time that we are "home for the holidays".        
We wish you and yours all the joy of the season and a healthy and happy New Year.        

Forever grateful,

Kat Nelson and team

What's Hot?
A powder room that is as stylish 
as the rest of the home.

  What's Not??
Stay Tuned!! 
The Pantone Institute has issued their 2016 colors of the year.  For the first time ever, they have issued two colors to take the honor of Color of the Year.
In the next issue, we will explore the use of these colors in design.  Here's a sneak peek.

Featured Projects
The Powder Room is an ideal space to make your guests feel pampered.  Clients are removing the standard builders sink/ cabinet combination in favor of pedestal sinks and unique wash basins.  The Powder Room should be an extension of the design of the home.  
Kat Nelson Designs offers updates to your current powder room needs to complete renovations.
