My friend Valerie's home is featured in a 10 page spread this month.
She decided to fully remodel her Old Leawood home to her clean, simple, modern taste in planning on staying there for a long time. Life and family dynamics changing caused her home to be THE place for extended family get-togethers and holiday celebrations. She wanted her home to easily satisfy entertaining needs and large groups of people with an intimate setting. She did it fabulously!
[please forgive my photography of the page layouts - go get the real thing; it's better!]
[my personal fave- her custom sideboard in the dining room. I have to admit at times when she had a hard time making a decision- she'd call me for my opinion or advice, and the sideboard was my HANDS-DOWN favorite thing to help her decide on. She used the wood grain formica vertically with a white back-painted piece of glass on top]
Our friend, Jeff Hanson's canvas collection titled "Cabo in Chrome" is featured in the first photo in the Lounge area of Valerie's home.
