I find inspiration in lots of unusual places. It could be a rusted gate that I think would be a great piece of art above the mantel or a colorful matchbook cover in a favorite restaurant. Sometimes you really have to look for inspiration and other times it just falls in your lap. This past weekend it just fell in my lap.
My husband and I decided to get away for a few days to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary. He didn’t tell me until just a few days before we were leaving that our destination was wine country in California. I was mentally packing my suitcase with a cozy wrap for the cool evenings and wine country casual for the daytime when he told me that our accomodations would be an old lodge with fireplaces at every turn. This man is speaking my language. I could see us renting bikes and touring wine country with baskets of wine, cheese and that crusty bread that I love. I thought the weekend would be nothing but total relaxation but everytime I turned around I saw something that would be perfect in a Stone Creek kitchen. If it wasn’t the warm patina on an old piece of wood it was a textured stone that could become great backsplash. Even listening to our tour guide at the Grgich Estate and winery made me think of decorating. She was talking of how lunar cycles effect grape growing…My thoughts turned to the cycles of decorating.
She continued to point out how the planting, pruning, and harvesting of the grape was essential to a great bottle of wine. In my mind I’m thinking…the design, construction, perfect layout and the process of choosing the right materials can give you a Stone Creek kitchen to drink her wine in!!! You might say that decorating takes over my life. I just think that inspiration can come in many shapes and forms . Being surrounded by 200 wineries in the span of 4 days can truly relax you. Let me help to bring some relaxation to your kitchen. Just fill out the form to the right and we’ll put some wine country inspiration in your kitchen.
