Kelly Morriseau, kitchen designer to the stars, writes a blog I read religiously called Kitchen Sync. She's a woman of vision and talent and her topics always give me plenty to think about. I respect her opinion and when she published a list of predictions for 2009 and beyond, I paid attention. Read Kelly's predictions article on Kitchen Sync here. She gives me ample reason to remain optimistic. Thank you Kelly!
Laurie Burke's blog, Kitchen Design Notes, is another source of inspiration and information for me. Last week, she ran a piece on some revised regulations regarding lead in paint. Renovators everywhere need to take note. Earlier the same week, Laurie ran a piece on Codding Cottage, an LEED Platinum-certified house in Sarasota Florida. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and a Platinum certification is as high a rating as there is. I haven't been down to see it yet, bad me, but it is on my list for the next week or so. I promise to send you photos Laurie!
