Marvin Bauman

Marvin's Top Tip

  • If you’re building a new home: think about your appliances first (what you have seen or used that you liked). If you’re renovating your home: be observant to what you dislike about your current space (for example, poor functionality or layout)

Favourite Quote

“Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.” – Norman Schwarzkopf

Personal Style

Current Personal Dream Design:
I love my kitchen (we renovated in 2012) – it has stained cabinets (cappuccino stain on maple);
If I were building a new home, I would tend toward a mix of walnut and cream/off-white colours

Happy this fad is over:
Stained maple, cherry, and early American stained oak were very popular when I was actively designing, so now I like seeing different options

Hobbies

Current Hobbies:
Reading – 5 books on the go at a time - novels, leadership books, missionary stories; gardening

Favourite Meal

To Eat:
Chicken dinner – old-fashioned; vegetables, garden salad, baked potatoes, chicken gravy; strawberry rhubarb pie with vanilla ice cream for dessert!

Snack:
Mixed nuts
