About Us

The Summer Kitchen is owned by two sisters who share a passion for floral & interior design. Shortly after Karrie came back home from college, our humble beginnings took root. The name for the store came from an original summer kitchen, located behind our family's 1904 Queen Anne home. It was here, that Karrie first focused on her floral arranging, thus The Summer Kitchen began in the fall of 1995.

Several years went by and the business outgrew the building, so a pole barn was constructed behind the original summer kitchen, and right beside the family's Airstream refinishing business. The old building was "adopted" and went to another home. As time went by, Karla joined Karrie partnering to create a store that carried more home decor items and provided interior design work.
