  • Without a doubt, kitchens and baths are the most utilized rooms in our homes. Kitchens are the heart of the home where families congregate, not only to prepare meals, but to socialize or do homework; its how and where we live. Their designs have changed to accommodate this lifestyle, with open floor plans, ample seating and amenities that invite you in and encourage lingering. New bath designs also offer this same invitation. Homeowners are longing for more comfortable features in the space where they begin and end each day. This issue offers several distinct kitchen and bath designs that incorporate innovations in technology, creative space

    planning and decorating solutions that will provide pages of ideas for your wish book.Our cover home was originally planned as an investment property. The Sherriff family had purchased the lot right next door to their home

    and began the building process. But halfway through construction, they decided it was meant for them, and in what could be called the shortest move in history, they packed up and moved next door. First, they called on Dawn Hearn to guide them through selections in what was to be their new home. Maintaining a neutral palette for resale purposes in case the urge to move popped up again Hearn kept it interesting with a variety of textures and patterns in stones, textiles, woods and metals.

    Looking for a cool hang out? The Hangar Lounge in Austins Fourth Street Warehouse District is just the place. You will be transported to a by-gone era of subtle sophistication. The retro-aviation theme harkens back to a time when traveling by plane was an important social occasion. Inspired by the childhood memories of architect Dick Clark, he insists this is no place for a margarita. The appropriate drink? A Manhattan.

    While vineyards are by no means new to Texas, another Italian favorite is flourishing here as well the olive tree. The same soil and weather conditions apply, and three orchards in our area have found that the Texas Hill Country is similar to other olive-growing places like Southern Europe and North Africa. Texas olive oil is now making a statement in the culinary world thanks to Sandy Oaks Olive Orchard, Bella Vista Ranch and Texas Hill Country Olive Company. And while we have all heard of the possible healthful properties of olive oil, Jeff Conarko of Con Olio Oils in Austin shares his knowledge as a certified olive oil sommelier, explaining what to look for and how its done in Europe. (Editors note: Texas Hill Country Olive Company produces vinegars as well. The Terra Verde Mandarin Balsamic Vinegar is an absolute favorite at our house!)

    Wed like to introduce you to Oscar Saldivar. This relatively new metal artist resides in San Antonio and produces the most creative pieces of functional art. They look like something out of a Dr. Seuss book, but his engineering background ensures these delicate pieces are as firmly balanced as they are beautiful.

    And finally, as Market Days season will soon be upon us, we bring you the wonderful town of Wimberley. However, dont wait for Market Days. This town is loaded with everything from quaint to quirky: artists, shops, restaurants, B&Bs, hiking. The list goes on and on. Its also a huge wedding destination. Plan a weekend and plan it often. Theres so much to see and do in any season.

    Thanks for joining us this issue. We encourage you to recycle or pass it on to a friend!
