editor’s letter

STYLE WITH CHARM Whether it’s a house that uplifts your attitude or a retreat that feeds your need to explore your inner artist, this issue will inspire you to surround yourself with things that say “home sweet home” to you! We know you’ll enjoy reading about homeowners who have settled into a life of sublime living—from rural country cottages to city farmhouse dwellings—both inside and out. Of course, no country-style issue would be complete without a visit to our friends in Texas. You’ll love getting to know Lone Star State homeowners Amy and Brian Kleinwachter and their passion for antiques.

collecting cutting boards

These days, cutting boards come in all shapes and sizes and are often displayed on kitchen countertops and walls. Although maple has long been the wood of choice for the boards, bamboo has also become a popular option. Collectors often focus on a single shape or animal, and pigs seem to be at the top of many enthusiasts’ lists. This particular theme’s popularity may be explained by the Chinese and European belief that the pig was a symbol of wealth that had the power to bring good luck.

rolling pins

The rolling pin is one of the oldest kitchen tools around. Historians say it is depicted in drawings by the Etruscans—long before it was mass-produced in the early 19th century. Today, collections of pins are popular wall art for kitchens. In the photo above, rolling pins are attached to beaded board and framed to hang. The oldest rolling pins, like those in the collection displayed at right, are hand-carved from one piece of wood. All the handles vary in shape depending on the designer and the use of the rolling pin. This collector and her husband enjoy finding pins while traveling. Once home, the rolling pins are displayed in the kitchen but are still accessible and “ready to roll.” “No one is born a great cook, one learns by doing.”—JULIA CHILD…
