Kitchen & Bath

18th Annual Bathrooms of the Year

A balance of contrasts — contemporary alongside traditional, black juxtaposed with white, elegance combined with simplicity — amplifies the appeal of this year’s winning bathrooms.

Kitchens of the Year: China Doll - Kim Grant, Kim Grant Design, Elizabeth Thiele Barkett, Ross Thiele and Son

By sheer coincidence, this quartet of cooks' spaces all contain little snippets of silver. But happenstance had nothing to do with their being named the shining winners of our 25th anniversary Kitchens of the Year contest

Baths of the Year: Ebb And Flow - Wolf Kalber, Wolf Design Build Inc

An awe-inspiring, personal statement, Wolf Kalber’s approach for his own master bath is a far-flung fantasy designed to evoke the joy of showering under a cascading waterfall in a tropical rainforest.

Retro Active

A candy red kettle pops extra joy into a high-spirited kitchen makeover that designer Rosella Gonzalez infused with her client’s playful personality.

Follow the Leaders

Difficult, typical, cramped, closed off, sad and desperate: Those are words used by local designers describing “before” aspects of residential spaces they’ve remodeled.

On the Level

An arched opening leading to a Rancho Santa Fe home’s master bathroom perfectly frames a tub tableau that’s so inviting you want to hop right out of bed and into a relaxing soak of bubbles.

Landmark Makeover

From the side yard of a historical cottage in La Jolla, a Dutch door opens to reveal a remodeled kitchen that’s filled with light. The door’s quaintness complements the home’s storybook style. The residence is one of a cluster of Tudor homes in the Barber Tract designed by architect Florence Buchanan Palmer.

Bathtub Selection

Bathtub choices abound for consumers. Haley Davis, product manager with Mansfield Plumbing, provides a list of tub descriptions to help you make a selection.
