We’ve done it again! Our interior design project of a re-design of a quaint cottage in historic downtown Wilmington previously featured on’s “Kitchen of the Week” is now being featured in the Summer 2014 issue of Flea Market Décor Magazine. Flea Market Decor Magazine is a resource for flea market finds, collectibles and inspiration/design stories and tips from home experts.

It was such a wonderful surprise to hear from the article’s author, Sarah Jane O’Keefe who had seen the “Kitchen of the Week” on and wanted to write about my inspiration behind the project. Read the article for yourself below. Copies are available for $9.99 on the website here.
