EDITOR'S NOTE

An Alien in Italia

I went to Milan last month to attend
EuroCucina and the International Bathroom
Exhibition. Lucky for me, almost everyone
was bilingual, but it was encouraged to try
and speak at least a little Italian from time to
time. At that I failed miserably.
I had learned a few words and phrases
before I left, but I kept getting them wrong.
Instead of saying "Bonjourno," I kept saying
"Prego," which literally means "Please" and
"You're Welcome." It definitely isn't a greeting.
I'd randomly say "Thank You (Grazie) because I liked the way it
sounded, and once I even said "Oui," which is French, and the cab
driver looked at me sympathetically. I don't actually speak French, but
I know it much better than Italian, so I thought, what the heck?
The visit to the actual fair was highly successful, I'm happy to report,
and this issue highlights several bathroom and kitchen trends that were
prevalent, including kitchen technology innovations and hammans in
bathrooms. Don't know what a hammam is? Check out our All Abroad
section and find out!
At the Smeg booth at
EuroCucina: a beverage
cooler built into a Fiat.

For more U.S.-centric trends, K+BB polled our new Editorial Advisory
Board on all of the latest, and they shared their thoughts based on
their own experiences with clients, as well as what stood out to them
at KBIS last February. That wealth of information is jam-packed in a
Special Report in this issue.
Out technology column delves into all of the available digital design
tools with which you can create a successful design presentation -
think PowerPoint on major steroids.
And we did something different with our kitchen and bath features
in this issue. Instead of featuring one of each, we included the kitchen
and the bathroom from the same house in each feature. More bang
for everyone's buck.
We hope you enjoy this issue, and please feel free to send me
feedback on anything you'd like to see on future pages. n
