KBB - January 2014 - (Page 6)

EDITOR'S NOTE Inspiration Is Everywhere Recently, I had the good fortune to take a trip to the Big Apple before the weather outside became frightful. I was also lucky enough to visit the Architects & Designers Building with a well-known area designer - Toni Sabatino. Toni took my publisher, Natasha Selhi, and me on a tour of as many of the beautiful showrooms we had time to see during our tight schedule. Never have three hours gone by so fast! While drifting in and out of the Wood-Mode, St. Charles, Eggersman, GE Monogram and Studium showrooms (just to name a few), I heard Natasha say, "These showrooms and products make me hate my kitchen and bathrooms." We got a good chuckle out of her comment, but don't we all feel that way sometimes? Isn't there always something we could do to make even the smallest improvements in the spaces in which we spend so much of our time at our homes? My boyfriend has owned the same house for about 15 years, and the design has remained the same. His home is a virtual mecca for me to use the knowledge I've gained on kitchen and bath improvements. I look at his small kitchen (with no island) and dream of the wall between that and the unused dining room being knocked down to create an open, living/working space that is so popular today. His kitchen appliances have already been updated to stainless steel, but I also envision non-porous countertops and painted cabinetry with transitional hardware. I see ambient LED lighting where the fluorescent fixture is now, and I want to actually use the undercabinet lighting that is already in place (in new cabinets). In his master bathroom, I wish for the enormous (outdated) tub to be obliterated and for the small shower space to double in size with a water-saving but luxurious showerhead and a bench on which to sit. He could keep the tub/shower in the secondary bathroom, which is advised for resale, and replace the current valves with thermostatic valves for their extra safety and water volume control features. In reality, I know all of those things added up equal a lot of money, so he is doing those things gradually. Lucky (or maybe not) for him, I am up on today's kitchen and bath trends and can help out (insert my opinion everywhere) along the way. In this issue, four industry experts give their feedback on today's design and construction market (pages 22-26), as well as their impressions on the kitchen and bath trends that are popular today and will be in the near future. Please let us know if have your own expertise to add to the mix. n Chelsie Butler, Executive Editor chelsie.butler@emeraldexpo.com DESIGN + INNOV TION + LIFESTYLE / January 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 editoriaL advisory board Kate Bailey; Jeff Burton; Paul Cottle; Kristina Crestin; Sabrina DaLomba; Bill Feinberg; Pamela Goldstein, cmkbd, caps, allied asid; David Hagney; Cathy Osborne; William Roquemore; Toni Sabatino; Phil Seaton; Ebony Stephenson; David Stimmel SUPPORT production director | Nan McDowell (770) 291-5480 nan.mcdowell@emeraldexpo.com production ManaGer | Terri Hill (770) 291-5481 terri.hill@emeraldexpo.com reprints and eprints Anastasia Minichino, The YGS Group (800) 501-9571 Ext. 100 anastasia.minichino@theygsgroup.com circuLation custoMer service (800) 697-8859; Fax: (847) 291-8416 nkb@omeda.com List rentaL Contact your Territory Manager or: Gregry Gilroy, (845) 201-5329 gregry.gilroy@reachmarketing.com pubLisher Natasha Selhi 6800 Jericho Turnpike Suite #100E, Syosset, NY 11791 (516) 682-6030 natasha.selhi@emeraldexpo.com TERRITORY MANAGERS MidWest John Wilson (215) 497-0221 john.wilson@emeraldexpo.com east coast Paul Bienkowski (860) 644-3861; FAX: (860) 644-0700 pbienkowski@cox.net Phil Viscidi (781) 431-1320; FAX: (781) 431-1968 phil@viscidi.com Liliana Connolly (781) 431-1320; M: (781) 492-1509 lil@viscidi.com West coast and southWest Larry Shore (562) 598-5560 larry.shore@emeraldexpo.com cLassiFieds and speciaL sections Diane Kennedy 1145 Sanctuary Parkway Suite #355, Alpharetta, GA 30009 (770) 291-5519 diane.kennedy@emeraldexpo.com vice president/content Doug Hope (770) 291-5453 doug.hope@emeraldexpo.com vp kitchen and bath Group Brian Pagel 1145 Sanctuary Parkway, Suite #355, Alpharetta, GA 30009 (770) 291-5438 brian.pagel@emeraldexpo.com senior vice president Joe Randall joe.randall@emeraldexpo.com david Loechner CEO, Emerald Expositions eileen deady Vice President, Human Resources denise bashem Vice President, Finance Lori Jenks Vice President, Operations darrell denny Senior Vice Presdent Business Development teresa reilly Vice President, Digital Joanne Wheatley Vice President, Manufacturing & Marketing Services the official sponsor of Circle No. 7 Copyright © 2014 by Emerald Expositions.
