Bob Vila and the Ravenna House


Guys, the Ravenna House kitchen remodel is on Bob Vila today!  Yes, that Bob Vila!  His awesome editor, Kathleen Corlett, tracked me down for a Q&A and you can read about it here.

p.s. Are you celebrating Valentine’s Day this year?  These brunch ideas are sweet and easy!

p.p.s. I’m pretty obsessed with this Maui plantation.  I could live with sun and warm weather every day.

p.p.p.s. Have you guys watched Carl Segan’s Cosmos mini-series?  Blew my mind!

  1. Bob Vila!? I grew up on him!! Congrats.

    • Thanks! Me too 🙂

      • Hi,

        Your kitchen turned out beautiful! What surprised me was that your old kitchen looks exactly like my kitchen now, layout and condition and all. We live just north of you so I was pleasantly surprised to see what my kitchen could look like! We plan on renovating it ourselves as well but I’m wondering what was the budget for this renovation? Were the two walls you took out load bearing walls?

        • I love original kitchens…and all that they can become! Keep me updated on your remodel! The walls we removed were not bearing so that was simple. I’ve been asked about the budget a couple times, so I’ll put together a post on it once I organize all the receipts.

  2. Beautiful kitchen! Is that marble that goes all the way up the wall?
    “Before and after: ‘Smallest kitchen I had ever seen’ goes from grim to glam”. Come see my “grim” and smaller kitchen. I always wonder what others would do to my kitchen to”glam” it up.
