Pic of the Day: Modern Family Portrait


Love this creative idea…a faceless family portrait! It was taken by the self-described “insanely happy interior designer and photographer” Lori Andrews (aka the 10 Cent Designer).

She also replaced the worn out arborite countertops with new ceasarstone, painted everything a fresh white including the cabinets, and had a lovely glass backsplash installed. Whew. Talk about a jack of all trades!


Make sure to check out the client’s mid-century modern-style living room. Love!
