The mudroom is perhaps one of the areas of the home most overlooked when it comes to cabinetry and design, despite its incredible value in keeping your home and family organized and in good shape. But not by us!...

My design inspiration comes from local designers on big projects, Architectural Firms, trend-setters, clients and even social media
Proverbs 3:6 – “In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths.”
Current Personal Dream Design:
Practicality is key with 6 kids, but lots of styles are beautiful; I Love stained wood; walnut and hickory (grain is more irregular and subtle than oak, with dark streaks and knots – more rustic country)
Happy this fad is over:
Golden oak, pickled maple, and pickled oak finishes
Winter - recently rebuilt an old gas-engine with my son
Spring - gardening (tomatoes, black raspberries), making maple syrup
Summer – fishing at the cabin
Hobbies I'd Like To Resurface:
I’ve always enjoyed antique farm equipment; I own a 1949 tractor that I would love to strip down and reface. I also have an old wooden farm wagon that I have stripped down and started refinishing, but a lot of the wood parts were rotten so I need to rebuild them from the patterns.
Hearty farmer’s breakfast; grilling anything (would love to have a Green Egg someday!)
Late night snack:

For years, our cupboards have been a place of hiding for all the things we do not want our guests to see. Those days are over! With the proper styling, contents, and colours, open shelving can not only be a statement maker in your most used space, but it can also be functional.
