Our oldest daughter is finally back home and over the weekend we unloaded the moving truck with all of her college bedroom furniture and the memorabilia from four years residing in San Diego. It’s so good to have her home even if it’s only for a year before she continues on with her education. We spent Sunday evening laughing, eating, and watching the grapes grow, I am reminded how blessed we are to be together, healthy, happy, and in such a wonderful place we call home.
Topic change: I’m fascinated with kitchen design, I never ever grow tired of talking about it with friends and also with you! So can we talk today about a design movement? I won’t call it a trend because I think this one really is here to stay. In a world where we’re turning more to organic looks and eco friendly finishes, the appeal of wood cabinetry in the kitchen is on the rise. Again! How history repeats itself…
For years we’ve all been on a mission to rid the world of 1980s builder grade grainy oak kitchen cabinets, and as a budget solution we’ve painted them for the better.

The modern look embraces drawer and door fronts with clean lines, reclaimed or sustainable wood products, and often open shelving above instead of upper cabinets. Some are taking a very rustic approach, using barn or rustic wood on the cabinet fronts.
