Entertaining made easy with an open kitchen design

Decorator - Theresa Terebinski

Written by: Danielle Krouse

When Mike Dyer married Olga, who is from a busy city in South America, she expressed the desire to live in a more rural environment when they came back to the States after their wedding. “She was in love with the climate, the leaves changing colors, the different seasons,” says Mike. The couple wasn’t in any particular hurry to buy and they looked at over one hundred homes before realizing that everything they were looking for could be found in a golf course community. Although neither of them actually golf, the picturesque landscapes would allow plenty of ideal views from a front porch or back patio.

The home they decided on was a builder’s model in the Country Club of the North, which they loved due to the many upgrades, but it also allowed them to add their own flair through decorating. The couple’s personality is shown most in the entertainment areas of the house, but is also seen in the spacious kitchen.
