LUXURY CAR, MEET YOUR MATCH...IN THE KITCHEN!

When kitchen showrooms open their doors at Merchandise Mart in Chicago, they sure know how to impress! This year’s Neocon showcased again top manufacturers in the kitchen and bath industry. From cutting-edge contemporary designs to traditional designs blended with today’s world of technology, kitchen showrooms were packed with a wide range of great design ideas. While proper space planning, finishes & appliances selection could solve many kitchen dilemmas, two companies caught my eye for their strong design message which I believe is the key to any successful design.


Poggenpohl Porsche Design Kitchen P’7340 "Made in Germany"- in Poggenpohl's eyes “stands for a level of quality which provides inspiration throughout the world.” As the oldest kitchen brand in the world, Poggenpohl infuses any kitchen design with a clear message: “The essence without compromise: Passion. Performance. Purism. Precision.”

Launched two years ago, this kitchen  catches your attention with just few elements you notice right when you walk in: it's unique shape, high quality finishes, seamless execution- a simple definition of “sleek”. “In various formats and individual additions, several frames create a modular system that permits a wide range of different uses.”

Luxury based on its purity: Porsche Design is unique.Those who both design and own Porsche Design products share a common fascination for its properties: The timeless aesthetic. The classic modernism. The hi-tech screen can also be integrated in the kitchen work area. As all of the electronics are installed behind glass, they are protected from dirt and splashes of water. Handleless fronts emphasise the uncompromising aesthetics of furniture. Where handles are needed or preferred, practical aluminum rail handles underscore the kitchen's horizontal lines.”  The appliances are designed without handles – instead, they are operated by a specially developed sensor-activated touch system.

Based on a modular system, there are practically infinite possibilities in creating a custom designed kitchen. Working within a frame is not limiting when there are unlimited possibilities for placing elements within the frame. It’s all about creativity- click here to explore more of Poggenpohl Porsche design Kitchen.


When it comes to custom kitchen designs many of my clients welcome ideas based on a mix of modern and classical vocabularies. I found more than I expected in the showroom of Chicago-based De Giulio Kitchen Design, founded in 1984 by kitchen interior designer, Mick De Giulio. “De Giulio’s distinctive compositions are inspired by cultural influences and technology, and combine an experienced sensibility to craft, fine detail, and classic proportion.” While some traditional kitchen designs tend to look old school, De Giulio approaches space design in an equally classic, inventive and focused on finely detailed craftsmanship. Few elements worth a close look are:


- flexible sink- workspace and sink locations can be customized with sliding teak cutting boards and a series of teak accessories, including knife racks, a drying rack and a colander. When condo spaces come with limited kitchen spaces, using kitchen design ideas to maximize space and introduce multifunctional surfaces prove to be a sturdy investment.


- Paneled doors for the entire cold area of the kitchen- the Apothecary cabinet- what a great detail! you wouldn’t even know that behind this uniquely crafted cabinet door there is a fridge & freezer and while glass doors have been used in other kitchen designs, mirrors have been carefully introduced to kitchen spaces previously.


-Connect your living space with your kitchen space! Afterall kitchen serves dual function, it is no longer the place where we only prepare meals but it’s where family and friends come together, today's kitchen space is the receptacle of multiple functions. While condo spaces have a variety of layouts, the idea of blending the kitchen area with the living area (perhaps the den or family area) is one of the best take aways from this amazing display!

- mosaic tiles countertops- yes! mosaic tiles can be a great feature for any size working surface- it adds detail, sparkle and a great match for the glass tiled backsplash.

  13. Conference tournament brackets, schedules, locations, March Madness 2020 Live Online This year's Final Four will be in Atlanta on April 4 with the national champion to be determined on April 6.The 68-team single-elimination tournament holds 67 games over 21 days, a jam-packed end to the season that aptly earned the nickname March Madness.
    No. 12 NCAA Tournament seed as the champion of the Midwestern Collegiate Conference. That was more than three decades ago, and not much is the same. The MCC renamed itself the Horizon League, but Xavier hasn't been a member for two decades. Larkin now analyzes XU games on the school's radio network. And those games are contested primarily in the Big East Conference and televised nationally either on Fox Sports or CBS Sports Network. The Musketeers have made 25 NCAA appearances since, but only on the rarest of occasions have they entered as a double-digit seed.

  15. The Players field includes 144 of the world's top golfers vying for a purse of $15 million, making it one of the most lucrative PGA Tour tournaments. In addition to 600 FedEx Cup points the winner can receive $2.7 million. Play starts from the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass on Thursday. Rory McIlroy is this event's defending champion and is leading the The Players 2020 as the 7-1 Vegas favorite according to the new 2020 Players Championship odds. Six of the last 10 editions of the Players Championship were determined by two or less strokes, and this week with major champions such as Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth in the mix, it could be another close conclusion. Once you opt into any 2020 Players Championship you pick your own or play any PGA DFS tournaments on platforms such as FanDuel and DraftKings. The concept of a total output of 955 kilojoules for a 45-minute trip amazed me. A little less than a year ago I had the trip of my life on my own Peloton at peak fitness just before knee surgery. I churned out 455 kilojoules in 30 minutes, my heart rate went up for a full 13 minutes into "region four" and peaked at 168 beats per minute. I'm by no means a world-class competitor, but I'm solid enough, and it was definitely the height of my ability— in the end, it's been good enough for 184th position out of 11,000-plus athletes, in the top 1.7 percent for that class. I could only complain pathetically for a duration of about six days when the clock hit zero.

  17. The Miami Open received much recognition for its first debut at the prestigious Hard Rock Stadium. After both players and fans wondered how exactly a tennis tournament will take place within a massive football stadium, the Miami Open and IMG provided new luxury accommodation, services, pop-up experiences, updated hospitality and more beyond any standards. And back by popular demand one of the most popular features of the Miami Open— the Casa Tua Courtside Club — will return for the tournament this year.Despite fears of coronavirus forcing Miami to cancel the Ultra Music Festival and Calle Ocho, this month's Miami Open is still scheduled for late. The two-week tennis tournament, featuring the world's top men's and women's players, is expected to attract a large crowd after last year's pulling in over 388,000 fans to the Miami Open 2020 Gardens Hard Rock Stadium. The field features players from over 40 countries which also attract foreign fans and media. A spokesperson for the tournament said the 2020 Miami Open goes forward as planned, March 23-April 5. "Health remains a top priority, and in the run up to the tournament we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation with local, state, and federal officials and health organisations.We are also working closely with our medical provider Baptist Health and implementing CDC guidelines to ensure a safe atmosphere for fans, players and employees. On Thursday, the Florida Department of Health published figures that revealed that there are seven cases of COVID-19 linked to Florida, while five people are excluded from the state. After facing public pressure, the city of Miami decided to cancel this year's Ultra, the music festival that brings to Bayfront Park about 55,000 regular participants. It was expected to run from 20-22 March, and will then be moved back to 2021 March. This also cancelled the Calle Ocho Music Festival, which was scheduled to bring thousands to Little Havana on March 15.

  19. This relentless defending will be a very unfriendly sight for a high seed in the second round of March Madness. The recent surge of Virginia is not as dramatic as that of Providence, which in a matter of a month has gone from a complete non-factor to a popular at-large nominee.Though major college basketball conferences don't begin their postseason tournaments until next week, leagues involving national powers Gonzaga and San Diego State begin this week. In fact, 10 mid-major and lesser conferences tip off in the next few day run by potential Dance dark horses Liberty and North Florida, starts Tuesday with superior seeds hosting.Led by Radford and Winthop, starts Tuesday with superior seed hosting.Led by Wright State and March Madness 2020 Northern Kentucky, starts Tuesday with superior seeds hosting the first two rounds before finishing in India. Don't say you're an expert in his tournament if you don't observe a conference during the regular season. For teams they're more familiar with, casual followers can wait until next week. Otherwise, start watching first-round games and reading box scores with an eye to making smart bets later.Note that in smaller competitions, elite teams are far less likely to get caught napping in their tournaments. Many of those competitions are one-off tournaments where only Dances champion. Save your angry calls for next week against top seeds. Notice the 3-point line is narrower than it was in the past.
