Cal and Pat

I am so lucky to be surrounded by such amazingly talented people. Cal and Pat have been together for close to 25 years. Cal is my cousin; he is married to Pat, who is one of the best cooks and one of the coolest people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. The two of them have an amazing home with great ideas that anyone can pull from.
These images were taken by me a number of years ago (really bad pictures. sorry) their house was going to be featured in Country Home magazine right before it went under. I love their touches. They focus on organization and pieces that work towards that. Open shelving is everywhere. Their mostly neutral palet of Quahog paint from Martha Stewart with bright white trim makes for a calm and pleasing space.  The   furniture has great texture and presence. It’s not unusual for them to pull a piece of furniture from someone’s trash and refurbish it into an amazing find…These images will inspire you and get you out on trash day.

What a lovely home. I agree - it's amazing what you can do with old furnishings etc, a great way to recycle too. Have a lovely week. Sharon:)

Definitely imagine that that you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to understand of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst other folks consider concerns that they just do not realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and outlined out the whole thing with no need side effect , folks can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

Everything is beautiful...but you had me with that beautiful yet simple open shelving in the kitchen. I love the idea of "finding" something and making it useful. Their entire home is lovely inside and out on the deck!
