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.

 I wonder if I had a laundry room that looked like any of these if I'd like to do laundry any more than I do...probably not...
