BlueStar Announces First Annual Kitchen Design Competition

April 6, 2015

BlueStar has announced its first Kitchen Design Competition to honor design professionals who incorporate BlueStar products into their kitchen designs.

One grand-prize winner will receive BlueStar appliances for their home kitchen, the title “BlueStar Kitchen Designer of the Year” and a trip to New York City for the 2016 Architectural Digest Home Design Show. Six regional winners will also be named.

“With our distinctive combination of restaurant-grade performance and unrivaled customization options, including 750+ colors and finishes, BlueStar offers trade professionals truly unique options for clients looking to create custom kitchens,” said Eliza Sheffield, BlueStar vice president of marketing.

A panel of judges, led by interior designer Eric Cohler, will determine the winning entry. Cohler is known for mix of classical and contemporary styles – enhanced by jolts of unexpected color and pattern. When asked why focus on kitchen design, Cohler explains: “It’s the heart of the home, traditionally the gathering place. I like a space where you can cook, work, play games and really just live. I think it should be the most welcoming room in the house that reflects your own unique personality.”
