Traditional Home "Great Kitchens"

 
Photography by Dustin Peck

Lisa Mende Design is proud to be included in the Traditional Home "Great Kitchens" issue.  Have had a chance to read it yet?  It is a fabulous issue chocked full of design advice on creating beautiful kitchens, along with amazing features on entertaining and lots of great recipes too.   

 The Terry Kitchen featured is one of my all time favorite kitchens.  There is something about a "tuxedo kitchen" that I love.  Black and white is so crisp and classic.  This house was built in 1912 so I wanted to stay true to the era of the home, but I updated the look with bold graphic fabric shades at the windows from Cotton and Quill and geometric wallpaper on the ceiling from Cole & Son.  My choice for appliances was my favorite and always "go to" appliance line Thermador.  Countertops were from Wilsonart.  This was a big kitchen so I decided to eliminate upper cabinetry and use Ann Sacks  subway tiles counter to ceiling in gloss white which made the room feel so bright and fresh.  I'm not going to tell you much more because I want you to pop over and read the rest for yourself.

The Judges’ Choice was selected by a panel of interior design professionals: Kathy Sandler of Nashville, Allan Dallatorre of Los Angeles, Lisa Mende of Charlotte, and Linda Holt of Boston.
Both of the winning designs are being produced as scarves that will be available through Crossville distributors in early September, in anticipation of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. The scarf competition is just one of the ways that Crossville carries out its commitment to raising awareness of breast cancer and offering practical contributions to help those in the industry who are struggling with the disease.
Since 2007, Crossville has donated more than $75,000 to The Common Thread for the Cure.


Thank you to Crossville Tile Inc for allowing me to be one of the judges for this contest!  There were so many great entries!  I am always happy to participate in such a worthwhile cause.  Congratulations to the winners!  I would like to thank all who participated!  Together we will find a cure!

What is Coterie Company, you ask?  

A place where like minded woman can co-work in a motivational environment.  What is co-working? It is a creative new way for people to work.  It is also the social gathering of a group of people who are still working independently, but who share values and are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with people who value working in the same place alongside each other.  Co-working involves sharing a working environment, such as an office with other like minded individuals.  Unlike a typical office, these individuals often come from different backgrounds of work and not employed by the same companies.  These people can be people who travel and need a place to work, work from home professionals or independent contractors.  Working with others prevents the isolation often felt by working alone.  COTERIE provides a supportive community for entrepreneurs and independent professionals who want a space to work, connect with peers and collaborate.
