    My clients wanted a more functional kitchen that could accommodate more then one chef in the kitchen, great for entertaining and for a large island for crafts and projects. We did a Kraftmaid peppercorn bottom cabinet with deep drawers for storage and the upper cabinets in a cream with a coco glaze with a beautiful quartz counter top, glass beveled subway tile and hand painted and selected Tabarka tiles. We added an addition on to the house to accommodate the kitchen table so that we could take over the breakfast room to expand this space and knocking down wall to give an open concept. Construction was handled by Wedge Construction.

    “Sallie Kjos is a dream to work with. She immediately shows her expertise by observing your space, asking questions about your style and vision and then offers her own suggestions. She respects your style and choices but is also very honest about what will work and not work and explains why. She’s just real! Not pretentious and not a pushover. She doesn’t immediately push you towards expensive things and actually tries to find you the best bang for your buck. I’ve used Sallie for several projects in my home ranging from splurge pieces to economy. She is happy to do it all.”
