Sixteen days until the Ultimate Up North Kitchen Tour (it's November 1 from 9 am to 5 pm in case you haven't heard yet!) We've been working on it for over a year, scouting kitchens, printing tickets and maps ... This morning I was on Mary in the Morning (106.7 FM) to talk about it along with Nancy Blandford, the National Kitchen and Bath Association chairperson of the event. We had a great time on the air and I was reminded again how cool these kitchens are. All 19 of them are different--from modern to traditional--and they are filled with ideas. They are all renovations, so each one presents real life solutions. For information and to purchase tickets go to mynorth.com
I was also reminded of how much I've learned working with these NKBA desginers. On the radio this morning Nancy talked about how you can find designers who will actually shop with you at places like Ikea and Home Depot. Ever wandered around Ikea before lost and frustrated? I have and I can tell you I will bring a designer next time.
