About three years ago, I began the journey building our home. The kitchen was one of my main priorities. It was visible from the front entry and open to our Dining and Great Room: one giant open space across the length of the entire house. I have designed many kitchens before, but this one was a little different.  This one was ours.  It wasn’t designed to impress. It wasn’t designed for show. It wasn’t meant to be anything other than what it was: clean, simple, minimal, functional and have lots of natural light.  It designed to please no one but ourselves. I am my own worst critic. I didn’t want to have any regrets: “Oh, I wish I had done this instead!  Why didn’t I think of that before?”   It just had to work.

Fast forward: the deed is done with the help of many others who helped contribute.  I am grateful for their wisdom, input and advice. I take it all seriously. It was an honor to be featured as a “Kitchen of the Week” on Houzz and a delight to talk to Becky Harris, the author whom I have been reading on Houzz for years. I am sharing the article through the link below. Enjoy
