Houzz Feature

October 14, 2009

Hey all.  I’m entertaining out-of-town family this week and having a great time showing them the sights of San Francisco and the Wine Country.

Meanwhile, I’m pleased to let you know that Houzz.com has asked me to participate in an interview, and submit photos of my home. 

I was honored and delighted to accept.  Please click on over right here to see the full interview.

And if you comment on the feature article, you’ll be entered to win two of the smaller London Hurricanes from Crate & Barrel valued at $50 dollars for the pair.

A chance two win two of the smaller hurricanes, pictured below, on the right.

    Great interview Kate!
    You did a marvelous job of conveying your decorating & DIY philosophy. Way to go CG!

    BTW, thanks for the bit about the inspiration file (we are prepping an old house now
    for a M-A-J-O-R remodel soon, while prepping our own house for sale, with DH working out of town, and a toddler in tow – how do you spell o-v-e-r-w-h-e-l-m-e-d?) they are invaluable for keeping one on track in the midst of seeming chaos.

    Enjoyed all of your great pictures, but especially the one of your daughter’s room! You’ve inspired me to do something similiar for my new grandaughters room. My daughter and she just moved into an apartment in which they can’t really hang anything, but you’ve added splashes of color and whimsy that we can imitate!! I’m a Better Homes and Garden kind of girl too :)!

    Isn’t it so wonderful to be able to show off this beautiful area. Everytime I have family in from out of state, I end up discovering something new to see/ do here in Sonoma County. I do hope this weather clears up a little better for you….I really enjoyed reading about your lovely home. I especially like the family room with the giant world map! It looks like such a fun space for hanging out.

    Time to show us your “football touchdown dance” or in Canada…Your Winning Lottery Dance or whatever one who WINS big, such as a magazine claim to fame would do.
    Go girl,
    Do your dance,

    Do your dance.
    Ok, this is dumb
