What a Thrill!

by Victoria @ EdinDesign Interiors

I’m Thrilled! Fantastic kitchen, bath and residential designer – and host/writer of the terrific blog Kitchen and Residential Design - Paul Anater has posted a phenomenal article on MOI and my archway transformation all while ringing bells for Kelly and DesignTies. And not just that… in his post he likened the approach my husband and I have taken in our renovation work to the philosophy of Sarah Susanka and Mark Vassallo’s new book Not So Big Remodeling: Tailoring Your Home for the Way You Really Live. How cool is THAT?? If you make your way over to Paul’s place and read the post you’ll see why I’m so excited!! All I can say is… WOW!!

Well… and of course THANK YOU!!NotSoBigRemodelingCover

It wasn’t too long after Kelly and I started DesignTies that I discovered Paul’s blog. If you’re a regular reader of our blog you’ll know that I LOVE kitchens! So it’s understandable that I was hooked on Paul’s blog from the get-go. If you were to make your way over there you’ll see great articles on kitchens (of course!), materials, fixtures, renovations… and all things that inspire him! Today he’s posted a fantastic review of Sarah Susanka and Mark Vassallo’s book that you should definitely check out!

And if that isn’t enough to get you over to Paul’s place… how about a contest?? Kelly recently wrote about Paul’s terrific contest… make your way here if you’d like to learn more!!!


Again… thank you Paul!! You rock!

Oh my word Victoria!!!!! What an article and what a great compliment. Now I always knew that you were next to genius (ok you really are a genius)but doesn't it just thrill you to death when someone else raves and brags so much about all your talents. I couldn't be happier for you. What a great thing and I'm sure you're walking on air. I do so love all you've done to your home and I can't wait for you to show us that fantastic kitchen that we just see a peek of. Congratulations Dear Friend. I am THRILLED for you. Hugs, Marty

VICTORIA! WOW!!!! :) Congratulations! His post about you was awesome! And you totally deserve it! That picture of your ceiling where the arches meet is, by far, one of my favorites!! You rock! :)

And HOW COOL that he likened your approach to the book! Just yesterday my husband called me telling me to look up USA Today online to read this article posted about this new book and how people are downsizing and getting back to simplicity. And the book happened to be "Not so big remodeling"! Anyway, looks like an awesome book! When are YOU and KELLY going to write a book?? :)
