It’s simple, good-hearted folks like Allen and Cathy Tish that make me want to be better, live simpler and remember what’s really important.
Living the most humble lives in the middle of an orange grove in a home Allen built 35 years ago himself, they have raised their kids, sacrificed and saved. Now, entering retirement, they can finally complete their home and have it feel as welcoming and warm as their personalities.
Cathy was open to anything. She fully trusted me and Tim Wells when it came to cabinet design, busting out walls, colors and textiles. I wanted to keep in line with her love for nature and art so it wasn’t any surprise that her hand-painted deer picture was my first inspiration. I carried this deer with me everywhere and it truly started the whole theme.
Her kitchen was completely gutted and new wood farmhouse cabinets, granite counters and stone backsplash complimented the existing brick so nicely. The Tish’s are all about family so turning their front living room into a HUGE dining room was perfect! I had a 10′ plank table custom built by Tessa with “Vintage Woodworks” complete with 12 chairs.
Plaids with antiques; sunflowers with deer; this home is truly a stately lodge and Mrs. Tish will have you doing a craft or brewing some coffee for you if you enter her welcoming retreat. Just don’t scratch her new wood floors!!
Allen and Cathy,
I hope you are delighted beyond measure as there are so many memories to be born in your same but new space.
Blessings to this super sweet family and Tim Wells for introducing us 🙂
