Her decorator suggested that the island should be a contrasting color and she asked me to make it look old and distressed. So,
The decorator was right! The light colored island looked so nice with her new dark cabinet finish.
One side of Alison's home was mostly huge glass windows and they overlooked a large, beautiful canyon. The whole time I was working there, I loved looking out the windows at the canyon. And, a couple of those days, it rained and that was just sooo beautiful, too.
Alison had three boys, (two of them twins), two dogs and a very old cat...such a lovely home and I loved working with them!
(oh, and she, also, had a very nice husband)
