Some ASID Showcases ago Holly and her mentor, Bonnie Birnbaum, worked on the kitchen together. They decided to vault the ceiling above the eating area; quite literally with a twist! Working side by side with an architect and the construction crew, their design took shape…



The kitchen started out with lots of curvy, sunshine yellow laminate cabinetry accompanied by plenty of white walls.



the ceiling beginning




The twisted vaulted ceiling started by being built on the floor, where it resembled a ship being constructed.

Once the bones of the ceiling structure were built, it was raised up and secured to the ceiling, where it was then fitted with curved pieces of wood.


almost done




After it was in place, it was covered with sheetrock and painted.






Tiny, fiber optic lighting was installed for added interest.









The finished product earned the designers two ASID Awards; Design is in the Details and Second Place Kitchen Design.
