Top 10 Design Trends at KBIS (Kitchen and Bath Industry Show)

I truly enjoyed my time as a design blogger chosen to share design trends on #BlogtourKBIS this year with a great group brought together by Design Resource, Modenus. I was flown to Las Vegas, NV for the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show along with 24 other amazing designers from around the globe for a 3-day adventure of style spotting.

The overachiever that I am had FIVE kids.I have a very modest sized kitchen.
