Inspired by world travels, America’s most beautiful kitchen design lives in Chicago’s Lincoln Park.

Designed by Drury Design team member, Brigitte Fabi CMKBD, the kitchen’s rich eclectic look realized the vision of world travelers who call Chicago home. The Moorish Contemporary kitchen design was honored with two awards: Best of Show and first place in large kitchen category at the 2015 National Kitchen and Bath Association [NKBA] Design Competition Awards during the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show KBIS in Las Vegas.

Accented with antiques from Morocco, the design reflects the homeowners’ love of all things international. A stunning antique Moroccan door purchased on a past trip to Marrakesh provided inspiration, not only for styling, but also for color, texture and pattern that was repeated throughout the final design.
