Nothing says "made in America" like the Main Street banner under which the Towne & Country Design kitchen and bath showroom resides. A fixture on Main Street in Yorba Linda for 14 years, Towne & Country serves as a creative idea center and storehouse of design solutions for homeowners. The background of owner and general manager Rose Edwards was in marketing for a Fortune 500 company before she began her career as a designer. The creative aspects of kitchen and bath design drew her toward the industry. After eight years of study and practical experience, Rose began her company, Towne & Country Design Inc. Rose is always perfecting her craft; in recent years, her kitchens have been selected for the “Great Kitchens of Orange County” tour benefiting CHOC Children’s Hospital.
Rose and her design assistant, Renee Malkemus, walk each client through the planning phase of remodeling. They ensure that the design and selection of fixtures are of the greatest satisfaction to the homeowner, right down to the absence of dangerous emissions that can be present in hardwood products. Their cabinetry is manufactured by American companies who are certified by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturing Association (KCMA) who must prove yearly they are using sustainable practices and products. Towne & Country is serious about reducing the environmental and health impact of new furnishings in the home, a significant effort that can really make a difference to your health.
Their cabinetry is known for beautiful, premium solid wood doors and hand-rubbed finishes. The smooth gliding motion of soft-close drawers are a must-have. The intricate detail of hand-carved accents and moldings are among the best found in custom cabinetry. Interior functionality, now found in every cabinet in the home, keeps you organized and in control during cooking and entertaining.
“We know that beautiful interiors can only be the result of quality, well-built fixtures installed in your home” Rose says. “Add to that a fabulous selection of tile, flooring, stone and window treatments, we can make your inspiration a reality. Regardless of whether we are blending with existing fixtures and furniture, or completely changing the style, we can help.”
Rose is inspired by designer and architect Frank Lloyd Wright who wrote, “Let your home appear to grow easily from its site, and shape it to sympathize with the surroundings if Nature is manifest there; and if not, try to be as quiet, substantial and organic as She would have been if She had the chance.”
As a member of the Main Street Merchants’ Association, Rose Edwards is active in the community attending and sponsoring events and organizations such as Holiday on Main Street, Celebrate Yorba Linda, Pet Expos and the Nixon Library. Now, as downtown Yorba Linda is enjoying a face-lift and revival, Towne & Country Design is steadfastly uplifting the homes that surround it.
