Elkins Park’s down2earth Interior Design helps couple get ready for Thanksgiving

Joel Fishbein and Rachel Ezekiel-Fishbein of Elkins Park are hosting this year’s Thanksgiving in their dream kitchen. After 23 years in their home, this is the first time they’ve had enough space to comfortably accommodate their guests.

Before the renovations, they had thought about moving to Philly, but they realized they couldn’t leave the Elkins Park, or their 1929 Tudor-style home.

“The old kitchen design was from the original house and the cabinetry, we suspect, was last replaced in the ’50s,” Joel, a lawyer in Philadelphia, told the Inquirer. “It was really not functional.”

Enter Amy Cuker, owner of down2earth interior design in Elkins Park, who helped them move from concept to completion last year.

The couple designed their kitchen around two themes: aging and budget. Amy helped them maximize what they already have, juxtaposed with what they really wanted.
