About Us

Distinctive Living

We believe in pursing life's simple pleasures and delicious moments.  We seek to find joy, beauty and authenticity with ease and grace. We are inspired by gorgeous design, nature, healthy food and amazing flavors.  Slowing down to gather with friends, family and loved ones in your kitchen, around a table, on a picnic blanket or by the camp fire is important.

 Please join us at the table.

Wishing You Joyful Days,
Carrie and Krister Allen
