KBB - September 2015 - 6

EDITOR'S NOTE

Upping the Ante
in K&B Design
Each year, our Design Awards competition gets better and better in terms of the
amazing kitchen, bathroom and showroom
projects that are submitted. If last year's winners "wowed" me, this year's winners have
gone a step further. The winning projects
represent more than just great design - they
also illustrate superior craftsmanship, staging
and innovation.
This year's designer judges - Shane
Inman, CKD; Paula Kennedy, CMKBD, CAPS; Wendy Raizin; and Ray
Wiese, CMKBD - were a joy to work with and shared our enthusiasm in
regard to the submissions. Here are some of their comments about the
winning projects:
* The designer did a great job of putting everything where it belonged - it hits every mark.
* When double islands don't work, they don't work - but they work
in this kitchen.
* This is an original design with a Frank Lloyd Wright inspiration.
* There is a cohesiveness here even with all that is going on.
*H
 e handles the scale of space well.
* The innovation is impressive; the design is cohesive and masterful
with materials.
* Wow - clear winner!
* The shower and tub are functional where they are instead of just
looking good. Structurally, there is a rhythm.
* The shower is magnificent.

SUPPORT

* A remarkable space and a true push of a contemporary statement.
* This one made me smile. Love, love, love.
I'm not in charge of judging the projects - I just moderate the
process - but that doesn't keep me from reading about them and
combing through the photos. When I discovered that the judges highly rated my favorite kitchen, I was thrilled! And when they deemed it
Kitchen of the Year, I could barely contain my excitement. My favorite
part of that kitchen is that the homeowners considered their loyal
dog, Beau, in the renovation. He has a customized eating and drinking station, as you can see on page 24.
When you are finished reading this new issue, please email me and
let us know what you think about this year's winners. We hope you like
what you see! n
