of her lovely Newport Beach, California home.
I am not trying to tease you with room by room "snapshots" of Debbie's house.
...it's just that she is a perfectionist and I don't like to stress her out when I pull out the camera.
Debbie told me that she recently found photos of our dorm room that we shared together
our freshman year. We have been friends and occasional business partners ever since.
This is her breakfast nook right now. They recently inherited the painting from her husband's family.
The light fixture is from Vaughan.
This is our "hang out" spot.
This was how it looked before. Debbie designed the interior window (there is a hallway on the other side) to bring more sunshine from the patio into the kitchen.
The bar stools are from Ebanista.
The island lights are by Urban Electric. I toured their factory in Charleston, SC.
They are famous for beautiful American craftsmanship.
I like the under the counter microwave (we did the same thing).
The blue wool Indian rug is from West Elm. Doesn't it look great with the painting?
They have a full sized Subzero wine refrigerator (partay!)
next to a bar sink with filtered water.
There is extra refrigerated GE Monogram beverage storage here.
The counters are from Walker Zanger (black honed granite and statuary marble).
How cute are those tiny cabinets below the hood corbels?
Thanks, Debbie, for giving us a tour. What's for dinner?
More of her kitchen's creative details will be in my next post!
