We really have some amazing clients and I'd like to introduce you to them. Let's start with one of my faves, Roxanne Camden. When I first met Roxanne, I liked her immediately. She's genuine, down to earth, has a heart of gold and is always so much fun. It was my pleasure to work with her and her precious family on their home and make a good friend in the process!
Roxanne and her husband Chris owned an older home in the Memorial area and after much consideration they decided it made more sense to tear it down and start all over rather than tackling the huge renovation. This, of course, is where our beautiful collaboration began. We asked Roxanne a few questions about her experience with building her dream home and specifically about our favorite room in the house: The Kitchen. Here's what she had to say...
DI: What was the most challenging aspect of building a custom home?
Rox: The selections process... I truly had no idea of the daunting task ahead when we chose to build. Even though I know what I like and had solid ideas on style and materials, I was overwhelmed by all the minute details that go into choosing selections, which is exactly why I hired Kate!
DI: What was the most helpful aspect of working with Duckworth Interiors?
Rox: Kate made every step of building, from material selection to designing built-ins smooth and easy. Kate listens to her clients wants and needs and then provides honest feedback which helps make smart decisions.
DI: Why is your kitchen the most important room in your home?
Rox: My kitchen is truly the most important room in my home because its where we come together. As a family, we cook together, dine together and laugh together all in the kitchen. When entertaining, my kitchen is always jam packed with friends and family...it is the heart of my home.
DI: What aspects of your kitchen do you enjoy the most?
Rox: My kitchen is both beautiful and functional. A concept I told Kate was extremely important to me since I love to cook and bake for the people I love. While I adore a pretty space, I also need a space that can stand up to the abuse of daily cooking and baking. I love my commercial appliances, ample storage and tons of natural light, but I think my island is my favorite. It is oversized and able to handle kids doing homework, friends enjoying cocktails, Thanksgiving dinner buffets and so much more.
DI: What is your favorite thing to cook?
Rox: My favorite thing to cook right now is balsamic braised short ribs with roasted sweet potatoes, mixed field greens with sweet & spicy pecans and onion vinaigrette and my kiddos favorite brownies.
