A Sneak Peek of Hull's Happiest Days Designs Home and Studio

I love design magazines. I love, love, love to peek into interiors where designers and artists live. So I thought today I would invite all of you into our home and studio. Hope you like it and thanks for dropping by.

This is our dining room, its in the new part of the house -1811. We spend alot of our time around this table: homework, art projects, and of course meals. Kevin and I designed the banquette around an old door we found in the basement. He then custom made the banquette and we upholstered it.

This is our kitchen. We recently added the pressed tin backsplash and that is my grandmother's butcher block we use as an island.

Our living room and our two dogs: Cocoa and Princess Buttercup (yup, from the movie). Guess who is who? Kevin's mom made the goregous rose crochet afghan on the couch. Despite our dessertware in monochromatic tones, I do LOVE COLOR!

The Master Bedroom. I love our hundreds of years old wooden floors. The antique yo-yo quilt inspired a family project. We started two Christmases ago making one for my Mom, hopefully, Christmas 2011 she'll finally get it. We ( I say we loosely, Kevin and the girls) have made 750 yo-yo's so far. We need to get to 1000 for a full sized quilt.

The studio where we create Hull's Happiest Days Designs dessertware and our other products. I love this space it's large and tucked away from the rest of the bustle of the house in the attic. We were told this room used to be the colonial smokeroom where they cured meats.

Our girls are so lucky! How many parents allow a year round tent in the playroom?


  1. Thanks for sharing! You studio space is so nice and organized- it must be wonderful to work in.

  2. I love the pix of your puppies and the girls. Beautiful tour!
