I am so grateful that I get to create spaces where people gather around, live, and connect. Islands are one of those pieces of furniture that we gravitate towards and make memories, even on the most uninteresting days.
I remember growing up with an island that my grandfather built for our kitchen. It was also poised perfectly in the sun, and on cold winter days, that is where everyone sat to catch the rays.
I have so many memories sitting around that island, from doing school work, baking cookies, coloring as a child, or eating grilled cheese. Nothing exciting happened, just ordinary life. Yet, it was so special and it still brings warm feelings to my heart when I think about it.
I never thought I would get to work as an interior designer and create a space for families to have these same memories. It’s a privilege when someone lets me into their personal life and shares their story with me. I get to listen intently, ask questions about how you function in your current space, while scheming up ways you’ll function in the new space.
If you’ve been dreaming of gathering around an island in your kitchen, below are a few inspiration images to start visualizing for your new space.
These images inspire me to create a special place that encourages rest, pleasure, and security, all while cementing the ordinary and beautiful memories.
