I have 20+ years experience in Home Furnishings and Interior Design, specializing in Kitchen and Bath Design since '01. I work for Bilotta Kitchens in the A&D Building on East 58th Street in the Mid-town Manhattan. I have a passion for learning and love the opportunity to collaberate on projects of all sizes. My strengths in the field begin with my design background, use of color and texture to bring interest to a room, spatial relationships, organizational skills, innovation, decisiveness, and planning. I have had the thrilling experience of helping hundreds...?maybe thousands of people with their projects, and what I love is it never gets boring, and no two are ever the same. Thanks for reading.

Grothouse Walnut Island in the House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year

I just wanted to share a stunning kitchen island, designed by Tyler Florence, and made by Grothouse Lumber, for the House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year. It's made of solid planked walnut with a 4" thick end grain walnut top. The island is on heavy duty casters to allow the chef to remove meats and casseroles out of the oven, then wheel them directly out of the work area where the food can be carved and prepped for serving. This one has deep drawers, and versatile open storage. It's a great idea for any kitchen!

Open to the public all week in Rockefeller Center, the House Beautiful Kitchen is a great source for decorating ideas, and worth adding to your tour, so if you are near the city, don't miss it! Check out the innovative, new product offerings, and design ideas that are second to none. Cabinetry is by KraftMaid, Counters by CaesarStone, designed by Tyler Florence,  and supported by Sunbrella, Kohler, Chobani, and Kitchen Aid.
