Sweet Harmony: An Off-the-Grid Home in Idaho

This home proves that natural, healthy building can be as grand as your dreams (and your pocketbook) will allow.

Andrea inherited this kitchen hutch from her grandmother and remembers what was kept in every drawer when she was young. (The gingersnaps were in the lower righthand drawer.) An antique lover, she began collecting rolling pins when she discovered one with a patina that stops dough from sticking to it. “It’s the stories that I love—whose birthday celebration pie was made using this?’’ she says. The kitchen walls are hand-rubbed in mango and cantaloupe shades. “To me, these are kitchen colors—warm and earthy, very alive,’’ Andrea says.
