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.
