KBB - September 2014 - (Page 6)

EDITOR'S NOTE What I Did on My Summer Vacation It's been a minute since our last issue of K+BB, and in the meantime I hope you have had a wonderful summer going on dream vacations, completing interesting projects and taking a little break from work. I hope you enjoyed your time off, because next year there won't be as long of a break until you get your next K+BB. Our new 2015 July/August issue will be dedicated to a helpful Buyer's Guide for all of you kitchen and bath professionals out there. But let's get back to the summer for just a minute. I enjoyed a beach trip to Destin, Fla., and a cabin trip to the North Georgia Mountains. I stayed local for a 70s-themed birthday party for a good friend, a 4th of July celebration in Powder Springs, Ga., with loved ones and a gala dedicated to the dogs and cats at the animal shelter where I volunteer. To top it all off, I recently helped my boyfriend's friends rebuild his deck as a surprise while he was out of town for a week in July. Now instead of closing the door and the blinds on the worn-out space, we can entertain in style in what may not yet be considered an outdoor kitchen - but a patio set, some fancy LED lighting and a Big Green Egg are certainly paving the way. Workwise, the most notable project in which I have recently been involved is this year's Design Awards competition. For the second year in a row, I have been amazed at how the judges were able to choose a few handfuls of winners out of so many wonderful kitchen, bath and showroom projects. This year, our four esteemed judges decided on three main winners - Kitchen, Bath and Showroom of the Year - as well as two Honorable Mentions for each the kitchen and bath categories and one for showrooms. The projects represent a great mix of what is current in our market, as well as trends to come. Those winning projects are all celebrated in this issue of the magazine, and we will feature other notable project submissions in future issues of K+BB and on our website: www.kbbonline.com. This issue may mark the end of summer, but it also debuts our KBIS 2015 Countdown to Design & Construction Week special section. In it, we will feature everything you need and want to know about the event, so please stay tuned. As always, please feel free to share anything you feel would be an informative part of that section - or anything related to any other part of K+BB. n DESIGN + INNOV TION + LIFESTYLE / September 2014 A EDITORIAL EXECUTIVE EDITOR | Chelsie Butler 1145 Sanctuary Parkway Suite 355, Alpharetta GA 30009 (770) 291-5425 | chelsie.butler@emeraldexpo.com ART DIRECTOR | Wendi Van Eldik (770) 291-5520 | wendi.vaneldik@emeraldexpo.com GRAPHIC DESIGNER | Denise Fields (770) 291-5487 | denise.fields@emeraldexpo.com ONLINE EDITOR | ErinnWaldo (770) 291-5617 | erinn.waldo@emeraldexpo.com INDUSTRY WATCH eNewsletter Nichole Schulze; naschulze@yahoo.com CONTRIBUTING WRITER | Holly O'Dell EDITORIAL ADVISORY BOARD Tom Acquavella; Amy Ahearn; Tiffany Andrus; Kate Bailey; Meredith Barclay; Patti Baumann; Ronald Bullington; Jeff Burton; Kim Calavas; Cheryl Kees Clendenon; Paul Cottle; Kristina Crestin; Sabrina DaLomba; Sandra Espinet; Bill Feinberg; Patricia Gaylor; Pamela Goldstein, CMKBD, CAPS, ALLIED ASID; Christopher Grubb; H.
