Mountain Home Design

Mountain Home Design In any spare moment I can find, I’ve been trying to work on our mountain home design.  I must admit it’s a little intimidating trying to anticipate all our needs and wants for the rest of our lives and incorporate them into the design.  I think both of us are hoping this little mountain home will be our “forever” home, so it’s got to be functional, beautiful, and lasting.  Pretty easy, right?  It’s a fun challenge, and I’m enjoying the learning process because it’s new to me….

Cabinetry Door Cutouts

Cabinetry Door Cutouts I’ve been designing a lot of kitchen cabinetry lately for some clients, and one of my favorite parts is if I can design cabinetry door cutouts.  I first became aware of cabinetry cutouts from the English company, DeVol Kitchens.  They make simple, beautiful cabinetry and furniture that leans towards minimalism.  Some of their Shaker cabinetry features door cutouts that I love!

Hand-Me Downs

Hand-Me Downs I mentioned earlier that I went to my parents’ house this past weekend because all my family’s in town for a mini family-reunion.  My parents have been de-cluttering their house and decided to pass on some of my grandparents’ quilts.  My brother and sisters and I each got one, and this is the one I received.  It’s called a camp quilt or picnic quilt, and I used this exact quilt as inspiration to make my own.  You can find it in the June 2017 issue of Wilma Magazine. …
