Inspiring Love Quotes & Serene Design Inspiration
The exquisite kitchen bay moment (above) in a timeless kitchen by Kate Marker Interiors continues to work magic and have its way with me. (And not just because it includes a farm sink and the very same Kohler Parq bridge faucet I chose for my own kitchen!).
Kate Marker’s Grey Oak Project
This glorious home located in Barrington, IL, is on a lovely street familiar to me since our close friends lived on Grove for years. (In fact, I met the designer Kate and chatted with her at a party hosted by mutual friends.)
Kate moved away from this serene white modern farmhouse with limed-wash brick exterior (and it only looks charmingly historic!). It was actually built in 2016.
