When we first meet our clients, our goal is to work side by side to create a space that is more beautiful, purposeful, and functional than we ever imagined. We’re delighted to announce that two of our client projects recently won prestigious 2014 American Society of Interior Design [ASID] Illinois Excellence Awards.

Gail Drury, NKBA CMKBD [Certified Master Kitchen and Bath Designer], and Ginny Blasco, ASID, of Ginny Blasco Design Studio in Chicago partnered on the winning projects, a multi-cook kitchen remodel in Burr Ridge and a rec room reimagined in Glen Ellyn.
