When we were in Merida in December, Roger our esteemed architect, scheduled us several consults with different vendors for some ideas Carlos, he and I had. One of these was Anylu who is responsible for all our kitchen cabinets and other woodworking like doors and window of our house. Carlos and I had decided that we would like a few minor changes done to the kitchen as well as some additional cabinetry done in other rooms of the house. So Anylu came over for most of an afternoon and we discussed what we were thinking of. She came back with designs and some prices and we were on board with all of her designs and thought her prices, while not cheap, were online to what we were thinking of spending. Today I received photos of the install and I think they are fabulous!
In the kitchen we had the wine cooler and small rack moved to make room for three drawers, to correct that there were no drawers in the kitchen...were was I going to put the junk drawer...you got to have one of those! The wine cooler and a larger wine rack was moved into the entry way of my large walk in pantry. Later we will add a iron gate door to give the illusion of a wine cellar. We also had two upper cabinets and the microwave shelf encased in wood.

The second part of the project was Carlos' personal space, the upper floor study. It was designed to be a large multi-purpose room and at 15 feet by 25 feet, it is just that. Here Anylu designed a beautiful wall of bookcases as well as a floating credenza and an alcove cabinet.
