Q: What sets one kitchen apart from the next?
A: Personality


We've just completed a personality-driven renovation on Jupiter Island with builders Gladwin and Associates, a space we call Shades of White.

It's owners are, in a word, pleasant, and the finished kitchen is a
reflection of their personalities -
classic, chic, comfortable and pleasing.

See more Shades of White pictures here.


Our new Setting Sail kitchen, just completed on Hutchinson Island, has a flavor all its own, reflective again of its owners.

This family loves to sail, has picturesque views of the water and wished to extend those colors into their space.

This custom hood is our literal translation of a sail, the glass backsplash flows like gentle waves and the island top creates a canvas of sand.

Designer's Notebook

Subzero Wolf Designer's Conference

I was thrilled to return to my old stomping grounds in Wisconsin for this year's designers' conference at Subzero Wolf's headquarters in Madison this month.  Besides a mandatory trip to the Cheese Emporium, we previewed future product, toured the factories and practiced on the appliances with expert chefs.  I was thoroughly impressed w ith the attention paid the quality control and excited by two phenomenal new products: Wolf's Convection Steam Oven and Subzero's 36 inch French Door Refrigerator.
