My kitchen includes painted off-white cabinets, wood ceiling and an eye-catching turquoise island. The cabinets go to the ceiling and feature glass-front cabinets at the top with lights.
The countertops are black soapstone. My breakfast table, next to kids' table and a sitting area, is made from an old piece of wood with an iron base.
My favorite thing is my backsplash. Made by a local artist, it features objects I've saved for years: my grandmother's silverware, broken dishes, shells, old keys, marbles my uncle played with as a little boy and coal miner's id tags. There's also room on the sides to store cooking oils and my collection of salt & pepper shakers.
Art central in my house for 4 kids under 5: chalkboard, a place to hang the kids' art by binder clips, frame more of their art, magnet board and a corkboard, from many saved corks, to hold invitations.HGTV
My living room...yes, there's a moosehead over the fireplace but my father's business partner was a game hunter and this was his.
The mantle was made from a piece of wood salvaged after Hurricane Katrina.
