Page 2 Trends are NOT, to any good designer, the be-all, end-all path to follow in order to produce a good and creative design.

In fact, a designer should be somewhat wary of trends yet at the same time be open to the discovery of new, exciting products and design concepts to enhance aesthetics and function in our clients' homes.

LORI GILDER

GenX Kitchen:

-Gen Xers are the 52 million people born between 1965 and 1981 (mid 30's - early 50's) juggling raising young children simultaneously with growing their businesses at the same time. (entering their peak earning years)

-Kitchen is the hub of their home and want an open and fully integrated kitchen/living space that is flexible and multi-functional for growing family.

-Personalization is high on their priority list and are attracted to a more transitional design sensibility.

ANDIE DAY

Thoughtful design used to stay young through body (universal design principles) and mind (coastal, couture, euro design, etc. whatever it is that fills a client's senses)

Does NOT have to be institutional looking at all

Benefits: reducing/eliminating household risks allow homeowner to spend more time to improve health via exercise & diet, quality time with family/friends, and other lifestyle goals.

Repeatedly proven that homes completed with thoughtful design elements and beautiful FF&E, will typically sell in advance of other homes in the same region at the same price. May garner a higher asking pricing depending upon the market. Pays a quality lifestyle forward. Ripple effect.
