FAVORITE FOOD TO COOK: Pancakes! If I’m making pancakes that means my children are home and we’re having a leisurely weekend morning together. It’s a rare event so I cherish my pancake making mornings.
FAVORITE THINGS TO DO: I love to run, bike, ski, paddle board and sit on the beach.
ADVICE TO HOMEOWNERS: Work with an experienced designer. They will save you time, money, and headaches. They can anticipate design problems and suggest design elements you never knew could be or should be incorporated into your kitchen to make your life run more smoothly!
WHERE TO SAVE THE MONEY: Appliances. There are so many great choices for a wide variety of budgets. Some of the best chefs I know create amazing meals from the most basic appliances.
WHERE TO SPEND THE MONEY: Cabinets. They are the foundation of your kitchen. If you put a beautiful stone countertop on poorly constructed cabinets, you will kick yourself if the stone is damaged when you have to replace the cabinets that did not age well or hold up as well as you had hoped.
FAVORITE STYLE: Mid-century modern
