National Kitchen + Bath Association Design Awards

President’s Award

ALL THAT GLITTERS

A client that describes herself as “too much” is, of course, going to want a master bath to match her personality. This clean, bright, fresh space doesn’t lack in character, despite its neutral palette, because it packs a glittery punch. A spa-like walk-in shower with linear natural marble is the focal point at the entry. As you turn into the bath, the eyes are lead to the sculptural, free-standing tub and view of the city. Sparkling details of mirror and crystal throughout lend a feminine and unexpected touch.

Open Plan Kitchen

1. ISLANDS & MORE

The key to creating a kitchen for many family members and friends to enjoy together was adding a second island and dealing with the lack of privacy of their powder room by upgrading their hall bath. We added a structural beam to open up the kitchen to the family room. We mixed materials using counters of stone, walnut (made by the owner) and stainless steel; plus, cabinets with paint, walnut, and glass intermingled to make the room both practical and welcoming.

Large Kitchen

1. BLENDED BEAUTY

To honor the timeless beauty of this Tuscan, traditional-style home, we worked closely with the owner to revive the dark kitchen with her dream of adding more white, but we kept the existing dark walnut and travertine floors. This space also features a custom hammered-nickel hood with a medium patina; a farmhouse sink by Texas Lightsmith; custom metal and glass dishrack by Studio Andolina; white Bellmont Cabinets with nickel glaze and oak; brown granite counters; white, gray and bronze arabesque backsplash with silver sparkle grout; hammered bronze pendants; and nickel and bronze handles from Restoration Hardware. It all created a balanced and perfectly blended curated look.

Small to Medium Kitchen

1. URBAN BUNGALOW

This 1940s bungalow was divided up into cramped rooms and was inconducive with the young family who call it home. The main goal was to open the space and create more opportunities for family time and entertaining. Working with the existing structure, we incorporated large wood beams + posts into the kitchen design, allowing us to completely open it to the dining and living spaces, giving uninterrupted views to watch over kids at play. Combining navy blue and white cabinets with brushed brass accents in hardware and lighting, Misterio Pental quartz countertops, and bevel subway tile, we created a fun, yet classic material palette for this bungalow home.

Large Bathroom

1. LUXE TRANQUILITY

Photo by Carolyn Beers Photography

The clients’ goal of having a tranquil spa-like master bathroom cultivated the vision for this awkward, early 2000s transitional. Heated floors, a soft color palette, slab door cabinets, and polished chrome finishes brought warmth and engendered a sense of modern luxury that acted as an extension of the recently remodeled kitchen.  Linear vertical lights provided impeccable lighting while defining the double vanity function. The anthracite ceiling drew down the expansive vaulted ceiling while a large feature wall with 12-by-24-inch porcelain 3D tile conveyed movement and added depth.  Additional interest was added by fabricating a unique four-sided tile column.

Small to Medium Bathroom

1. SIMPLY MODERN

Cramped and dated, this master bath and bedroom were screaming for an update. Focusing on space planning, we created a more streamlined and efficient layout in the bathroom, making it feel much larger. In addition to the new layout, we added walls and a frosted glass door to provide more privacy while still letting light into the bedroom. Keeping the color palette minimal with the white, high-glass cabinets; Avenza Pental quartz countertops; white wall tile; black floor tile; and a geometric mosaic accent in the shower cubby, the bathroom gives the client a clean, fresh, and bright start to each day.

Powder Room

1. MODERN ZEN

Dark, dated, and overwhelmingly woods-y, this powder room was ready to be freshened up. The rest of this client’s home is midcentury modern with wood paneling and concrete details. We were mindful of these elements as we embarked on a new design. We kept the existing flooring and some of the wood paneling. We incorporated Avenza Pental quartz countertops and a cement “look” tile for the structural column and focal wall behind the vanity and toilet to create harmony and add interest. Cascading tech lighting pendants and mini LED can lights brighten the space and show off every detail.

Other Rooms

EPIC ENTERTAINMENT

Rarely does one have room for such an entertainment space in their home. For this home and this family, frequent sports viewings, parties for 50 people, and impressing the “who’s who” is all in a day’s work. This meant the space needed to by highly functional and hold up to frequently hosting large groups. Soffits help define areas within the large open space, and well-thought-out built-ins create a lot of seating without sacrificing space. Strong focal points make a huge impact and the desired “wow” factor.
