For those unfamiliar with the Kips Bay event, it started in Kips Bay, New York, and was so popular that it has now expanded to Palm Beach. This is one of the most significant charity events in the design industry annually. Even the home is donated. All proceeds go to the local Boys and Girls […]
When my daughter was younger, every time we dropped her off at a camp, sailing regatta, or even the first day of school, we always said to have fun, make new friends, and learn something new. Those are our family’s markers of a successful experience. So by those standards, the trip to KBIS with the […]
In just a few days, I’m heading to kitchen and bath show in Las Vegas, and I can’t wait to see what’s new this year. Las Vegas is a LONG flight from the STT Airport, and the trip is a real-time commitment, not to mention the expense. So, it needs to be worth it–and let me […]

In some ways, this time last year doesn’t look too different for us. For that, we feel very fortunate. Many of our clients reside off the island during the course of their projects. Because of this, our collaboration with them started and has continued to be done online. Now, everyone who would normally be in the office is logging in from their home office. Thanks to our previous set up we’ve been able to pivot with them seamlessly. The difference we are witnessing now is a significant shift that is driving some new trends in design that we are incredibly excited about.
