Home Tour: Krause Sisters Cultivate Roots

Two sisters, Starla and Robin Krause, bought a house together in 1981. On the corner of a parkway in north Minneapolis, the 1931 Tudor had room to grow and a charming patina. At the time, Starla and Robin were Kansas transplants with just-budding careers, and now they are happy to be rooted and thriving Minnesotans. Through the years, they have invested their time and talents into the community. Starla is a caterer and Robin is a food stylist, and both have an enthusiasm for simple, whole and delicious cooking. They co-founded Kids Cook, where they teach and work alongside students and community volunteers to grow, harvest and prepare food in the schoolyard garden. I wasn’t surprised that this sense of cultivation and community-building is evident throughout their home.
