Kitchen & Bath Business - May/June 2016 - 6

May/June 2016 n o t e A FEW OF OUR FAVORITE THINGS amily, travel and technology are the resonating themes in this issue of KBB, so here is my attempt at tying those together in an entertaining fashion for your reading enjoyment. Don't worry, it will make sense. We've been busy lately traveling to some major industry trade shows, including Coverings in Chicago and all the way to Milan for EuroCucina and Salone del Bagno. Chicago was just a hop, skip and jump for me (although any amount of time in a plane scares the white knuckles out of me), but our managing editor, Erinn Waldo, traveled to Italy with what I would call "flying colors." She was so organized - providing all of the flight, bus and subway routes she would be taking - and opted to stay at an Airbnb, a trendy new way to save a little money on lodging by renting someone else's home - or a portion of it. Her layover on the way there landed her in Rome for a few hours, and on the way home it was Paris. Talk about a jet setter! The family theme also includes Erinn, who is getting married to her fiancé later on this year.She's been busy preparing and planning for all of the facets that make up a wedding and just recently was able to set a date. And a few months before her big day, she is also joining her family for their annual vacation. F 06 › Erinn and her fiancé Barry are posing for the camera right after they got engaged earlier this year. Top right is a photo from her walking tour in April of the Cinque Terre in Monterosso al Mare, Italy. Family is also a resonating theme in our design features in this issue. One is centered on a master bath/powder room renovation for an upcoming wedding, and the other is a heartwarming project that made it possible for a father and his son and daughter-in-law to live on the same property in their own private spaces. Last but not least is technology, which conveniently ties in family and travel as well. In the kitchen, people are looking for smart appliances to take care of the heavy lifting so there is more time to spend helping kids with homework or catching up with old friends. It is also about safer, more hygienic options that add to a family's health and well-being. Now in residential bathrooms, technology can make users feel like they are actually on a spa vacation with the variety of spray options, massage jets and steam units available to our industry. For today's consumer, it's all about living an authentic life, where technology, travel and - first and foremost - family, play the most important parts. ˜ Kitchen & Bath Business / MAY-JUNE 2016 / KBBONLINE.COM / The official publication of KBIS (KBIS.com) CHELSIE BUTLER Executive Editor chelsie.butler@emeraldexpo.com Twitter: @kbbchelsie Illustration by Arthur Mount e d i t o r ' s http://www.KBBONLINE.COM http://www.KBIS.com
