Design for a Difference

We are thrilled to learn that Deanna Whetstone of Whetstone & Associates has been selected as the South Central Regional winner for Design for a Difference, an International Design Guild contest. As one of four regional winners, Deanna’s charity of choice, Dalton’s Food Pantry, a local Indianapolis charity, will directly benefit with the regional award of a $2,500 flooring allowance.

After her daughter volunteered there, Deanna was touched by the need of those the pantry serves and also by the effectiveness of the volunteers that keep Dalton’s running. This win is only the beginning of what will evolve in to a larger project that will require partnering with other local vendors to create a more functional space. We will keep you updated as the project progresses.

Who’s Afraid of Color?

Not us! Color is playing a huge role around the shop at Whetstone & Associates. We are loving the rich hues that are captured in these glass jars.

We know. There are just no words. Let’s just take a moment to marvel at it for a while longer.

We would love to hear what colors you are drawn to as we head in to the late summer months. Do you find deeper hues catch your attention more as we get closer to fall?
