Dear Reader,
January has been quite an adventure! I attended the annual Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (#KBIS2016) for 4 days in Las Vegas and found so much inspiration, and cool problem solving products. See below for some of them. Also learned while there I had won 2 Houzz awards! And then there is Vegas itself.... And I got stranded for another 6 days due to #Blizzard2016. This newsletter is a bit longer than usual, but read all the way to the end for a little surprise! 
Houzz 2016 Awards

At KBIS, Lauren from Houzz told me that only 3% of all Houzz professionals win both awards (Design + Service) so I am a Houzz Superstar! Check out my Houzz profile.

Field Report from Las Vegas (highlights)

Was so excited to visit with
my pals at Oceanside Glasstile. I'm standing next to their
display showing the process
of recycling old Corona beer bottles into gorgeous tile. 
Beautiful and sustainable! 

Mid-century modern style Roycroft vanity from DXV (an American Standard company)
Not your grandmother's Formica! I have hesitated using this in kitchens because it has not been possible to install an undermount sink with a plastic laminate countertop. But now you can! I found a great product that solves that problem.

This La Cornue hand built range got a lot of attention!



Love this whimsical ceramic tile from Walker Zanger!

Vegas, baby! ~
I spent the evenings after KBIS wandering the Vegas strip (my first time there!) checking out cool design everywhere.

Chinese New Year at the Bellagio Hotel
Beatles LOVE, Cirque du Soleil. Gorgeous and trippy costumes & sets. And of course, great music!
Dale Chihuly art glass in the lobby ceiling at the Bellagio Hotel. Stunning!
My favorite Vegas hotel restaurant design + great food and service. Stacks, Las Vegas 
For those of you who read all the way to the end!
