There is just so much creativity in the blogworld and recently, I came across a wonderful new website, The Katillac Shack and met Kelee, who is the whimsical lady behind this delightful blog. She regularly features other blogs with their projects and so graciously agreed to feature my beachy guestroom on her blog today, so go on over and take a look at that. I’d also like to introduce her to my readers so that you can enjoy her blog as well. Kelee is an artist, creative therapist, and author, is a best selling author for Amazon.com and and has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Today, Kelee writes “The Inspired Home” for Guideposts, the world’s foremost inspirational magazine as their house and home expert.
Recently, Kelee designed this kitchen for the Kansas City Symphony Showhouse and Kelee says, “The design owes itself to the masterful interior architectural design of Steve Heiffus. I had the privilege of designing the rest to complement the stunning mahogany casework. Although this is a “high-end” kitchen design, I feel there are many ideas that could be adapted to any thrifty-nifty kitchen.”
Steve Heiffus’s beautiful and functional Range “inglenook” is framed in limestone and features a spice niche.
Using vintage linen placemats, Kellee added fruit images and created pillows.
Click over to Kelle’s website, The Katillac Shack to see this entire inspirational kitchen. I just knew that all of you would enjoy it as much as I did.
I love your blog and thanks for the link to see your room. Congratulations

Thanks for posting on this Rhoda, I love the basket with the goodies next to the stove. I am so going to do this in my new kitchen.

Hi Rhoda – I just came from Kelee’s sight and just love your’s too! It’s fun to get great ideas from such creative people!
Great kitchen!! I have to tell you that I “stole” your idea and framed my bathroom mirror just last weekend! I love how it turned out! I’m going to post pictures on my blog tomorrow and thought you’d like to see how it looks. 🙂
Kelee is great, I loved both of her books about Sacred Places for Kids and decorating for adults. I love the kitchen! I didn’t realize she had a blog, thanks for sharing! 🙂
