A Handy Pantry.

I love so many aspects of our home, and the new pantry is at the top of the list.

I am delighted with… Continue reading A Handy Pantry.

Our inspiration originated in our favorite restaurant in our favorite city: Canlis. Located in Seattle, Canlis is an impressive dining destination; a restaurant with deep family roots, culinary prowess, enchanting piano music, comfortable elegance, sweeping views, and unmatched service.

Kitchen Cabinet Hutch.

I am not sure how I came upon the idea of a glass front kitchen hutch, probably during one of my lovely evening strolls down the streets of Pinterest. Anyways, I am delighted with the end result! This piece looks as though it is free standing, but it is actually a permanently installed feature of… Continue reading Kitchen Cabinet Hutch.

Kitchen Transom Window.

I still owe y’all a follow up post regarding the details of the front fireplace, but I couldn’t wait to share our newly installed kitchen transom window. We had this transom window hand crafted by a local artisan, Denise Feeney of Stained Glass Unlimited, and she did a stunning job! This new window perfectly matches the… Continue reading Kitchen Transom Window.

Kitchen Tile Floor.

To follow up on my closet post from yesterday I was going to write about the girls’ bathroom today. I ran by the house this morning to get a few more pictures of the space, but the painters were busily painting the upstairs, and the smell was so caustically strong I couldn’t even walk up… Continue reading Kitchen Tile Floor.

Pulls, Handles, Latches, and Knobs.
