kitchen lighting

June 30, 2010

we have a way to go in our kitchen remodel before we think of lighting, but i like to be prepared.  of course, some of these have a greater chance of becoming reality than others, but boy is it fun to shop!

my happy place: turnbull griffin haesloop architects

June 29, 2010

remodeling an older home can be trying…especially when one undertakes such a task without much aid from others.  as many of you know, casa french is in the midst of such a project.

during times such as these, i turn to modern architecture.  it is my escape.  there is something particularly soothing about, new clean lines, fresh drywall, level floors and countertops…just about everything transports me to my happy place.  

which is why i am so in love with the portfolio of turnbull griffin haesloop architects:

an added bonus is that if our classic home should crumble around us, we now have an architect.  xo mrs. french
