Highland Park Home by Krista

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why

Describe your dream home in five words

Five things you can’t live without
Anita: Family, friends, my dogs, lipstick, design magazines, chocolate and coffee (oh that’s 7)

What are your favorite local shops and restaurants
Daisy: Shops- Anthropologie, Ampersand, Surdyks
           Restaurants- Zelo, WA Frost, San Pedros, Nova

Describe one of your favorite projects
Krista: A little Cape Cod style home in the Highland Park neighborhood of St Paul. The client loves super clean contemporary lines and wanted to remodel her bathroom to reflect this aesthetic. We took the space down to the studs and transformed the space into a lux spa. It made the pages of the June 2012 issue of Kitchen and Bath Ideas!

Anita: One I recently finished is a fun mix of old and new. We kept the charm that was there and added lots of practical living space. There are contemporary elements, colors and materials you would not expect in a lake cottage. The clients had a lot of input and great taste!

Daisy: Whole house remodel in Woodbury. The transformation from sterile builder-white to warm, inviting, traditional was remarkable.

Who is your favorite artist/ furniture designer
Daisy: Artist- Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec- Love his irreverence!
           Furniture- I tend to favor mid- century modern which includes many of the greats but the one that stands out for me is Eero Saarinen- His Tulip chair is iconic!

What is your favorite room in your home, why
Daisy: Our Master bathroom- despite that it’s not a large space, it truly feels like a luxury spa

Fill in the blank, no room would be complete without…
Krista: Your own personality!

Do you have “go to” paint colors, if so which ones
Anita: White Dove from Benjamin Moore and any color that is slightly “off.”  One of my favorite sayings is “there are no bad colors, just unfortunate combinations!”
