BLOG TOUR KBIS 2018 Orlando

Kicking off 2018 Right ! So thrilled to announce that I have been invited to join Modenus on BlogTourKBIS 2018 in Orlando this coming January .
As a designer who designs and builds a lot of Kitchens and Bathrooms throughout year, I enjoy nothing more than seeing new products and spotting trends at trade shows.  But this experience is going to be so much more amazing because I get to experience KBIS2018 with an incredible group of influential design bloggers .  I am in fabulous company and I can't wait to share all the cool finds with you. 
 Are you ready to be inspired?

Before and After Kitchen Renovation

Wow !  I didn't realize I haven't done a blog post for over a year ! Guess we've been pretty busy with design projects.  Will try and post more often.  Personally I LOVE before and afters  - and so I wanted to share this recent renovation we did which has a good transformation .


Most of our renovations are complete demo's .  We love working with a clean slate !

Now this Kitchen is Open and bright .   Accents of brass is classic , not a fad or trend.  Many clients are afraid to do it ... thinking it's just a trend .  But it stays timeless when mixed with other metals.
White Kitchens are always great especially when you introduce a contrast color for the island . 

Don't forget the 5th wall ... the Ceiling !   We added molding to the ceiling to give it some architectural detailing .   Speaking of architectural detailing... we also arched some doorways and raised the ceiling .    Kitchens design is not just pretty materials and nice appliances , it begins with a good space plan , finding clever ways to borrow space from other rooms and make it all functional .  The aesthetic is always in the back of my mind , but I truly believe form follows function.
