In my last post I told you we pushed very hard to finish (well, 99.999%) the kitchen. Phil says we work great when under pressure.
And we were under pressure. We had a deadline.
The kitchen was chosen by a regional magazine, Susquehanna Style as the Winner in their Kitchen & Bath contest. It won for Best Contemporary Kitchen! It will appear in their January edition.
The photographer had a deadline quickly approaching and we still hadn’t tiled yet. But with the help of a friend we were able to get the tile up in a weekend, and I grouted it while Phil was traveling.
Do you remember I told you I thought I wanted to try and pursue doing something with design in an earlier post? And I had asked someone for advice (she is a stylist with Better Homes & Gardens). She told me the first thing to do was to get the new kitchen published, have my name get out there and “they will come”. I thought she made it sound so easy. But, Wow! The first step is done.
I have started a website. Well, it’s just the Instant Page you can set up when you buy your domain name. But for now, it works just fine. Feel free to take a look:
Here is the house on the day of the photo shoot
Yes, that’s my little prisoner laying there in her kennel.
I cannot wait to see the pictures from the photographer. He was here for 4 hours. You know me, I had a ball. I loved styling the room for him and he seemed to really appreciate it. Cross your fingers, maybe it will lead to a job someday doing some styling for him.
I took this photo this morning of the breakfast room. How beautiful are those trees?
