DECEMBER 8, 2021 #KBTRIBECHAT – LUXURY BATHROOMS (WITH WELLNESS DESIGN EMPHASIS)

Sponsored by Duravit and Hosted by Jamie Gold, CKD, CAPS, MCCWC

The wellness-designed primary bathroom has well-organized storage, generous fixtures, ample natural light and nature views, along with designer-curated personalization. 

Primary bathrooms have become spaces to relax and refresh both body and soul for our busy lives. No longer intended to just facilitate hygiene, these essential rooms are now designed to inspire through form and finish, as well as with light and layout. Biophilia is a strong element via nature-influenced forms and hues. The effect is luxurious, nuanced and personalized, and the goal is for clients to “bloom” in the space where they start and end their hectic days.

Explore the latest fixtures and faucets, furnishings, and opportunities to enhance your bathroom projects with wellness design consultant and Wellness by Design book author Jamie Gold, CKD, CAPS, MCCWC and global manufacturer and sponsor Duravit. This lively informative KBtribechat on Luxury Bathrooms (With a Wellness Design Emphasis) will take place on Wednesday, December 8th at 2 PM ET/11 AM PT.

Jamie’s latest book for Simon & Schuster includes three complete chapters on bathrooms. 

Our KBtribchat Questions:

1. How have your primary bathroom projects changed in recent years in terms of budget, size and scope (e.g., incorporating walk-in closets, enhanced wellness features, dressing rooms, fitness areas, etc.)?

2. How does the concept of wellness play into bathroom projects in terms of design and product choice?

3. Are there certain materials and finishes, shapes and or wellness enhancements that you find are very popular in bathroom design at the moment? 

4. From a wellness, hygiene and even technology standpoint, what are must-have features of today’s luxury bathroom (i.e., bidets, smart mirrors, etc.)?

5. The freestanding bathtub is often associated with luxury bathrooms, what are a few favorite designs for freestanding bathtubs and accompanying accessories (faucets, backrests, trays etc.)? 

6. What are your go-to styles, sizes, configurations and finishes for bathroom sinks and lav faucets?

NOVEMBER 17, 2021 #KBTRIBECHAT – KITCHENS FOR (HEALTHY!) ENTERTAINING

A design discussion!

Sponsored by Miele and hosted by Jamie Gold, CKD, CAPS, MCCWC

Miele’s new ArtLine appliances delivers culinary excellence and sleek captivating style to its popular Generation 7000 line.

The path to culinary excellence is now laid-back and relaxed! Whether entertaining family for the holidays or hosting friends and neighbors, the emphasis is on creativity, inspiration, warmth and well-being. Kitchen professionals and brands make that happen for our clients, who appreciate the style, innovation and ease we bring to their lives. 

Yes, homeowners want appliances that look great in the new space, but that also make them look great as hosts – like smart ovens that keep them from overcooking the healthy new recipe they found online while enjoying a conversation with their guests, and coffee systems that create delicious after-dinner drinks for that ‘Salone’ feeling! What are you specifying these days?

Join wellness design consultant and Wellness by Design book author Jamie Gold, CKD, CAPS, MCCWC with global appliance manufacturer and sponsor Miele for Kitchens for (Healthy!) Entertaining. This lively, informative KBtribechat will happen on Wednesday, November 17 at 2 PM ET/11 AM PT.
