The design of to-kitchen centers around 4 main ideas: history, flowing forms, spaces marked by their materiality, and openness… The flowing curves help to unify the three main spaces which are defined by their materiality.  The kitchen, café, and gallery require a clean backdrop for their activities and, as such, have a while finish with accents of wood.

ddlovato: Last but not least… Phil McIntyre. This man not only believed in me when I was 15 and made my entire career happen, but he fought so fucking hard to get me sober. When so many others had given up on me, he never did. He told me he cared too much about me to watch me self-destruct.. Therefore at the very end of my drinking and using he gave me one last chance.. Get sober and he’ll stay, or he’d have to leave. He did that out of love. Not out of a money hungry I-don’t-give-a-fuck-about-the-artist kind of way… But he cared so much that instead of being the kind of person in this industry who could care less about my well being and continued to make money while I was spiraling, he stood his ground and said “If you do this I will fight this battle with you every step of the way.” I knew I couldn’t let go of him not only as a manager but as an extremely important person in my life who genuinely cares about me. He is one of the very few people who LITERALLY saved. my. life. I don’t think I’d be alive without him for many different reasons. Before I finish…. He’ll never take the credit either yet he deserves ALL the credit IN THE WORLD. So many other managers out there will try to become the artists themselves by putting their name out there just as much as their artist by doing interviews or photoshoots… But Phil is one of the most HUMBLE and hard working people I know. I can’t wait for our future together Phil. I’m SO GRATEFUL FOR YOU!!! Love you SO fucking much. #bestinthebiz #safehouserecords #thankyouphilmcintyre

We occasionally receive multiple photos from families, and while we usually try to keep things uniform by publishing just one, the treasure-trove we received from Robert & Jean from Minnesota seemed too great to not share.They’ve been together for 29+ years, have been married for 27, have two kids and a grandchild. Big kudos to Robert & Jean! - St. Paul, MN
