(San Diego, Calif. - October 11, 2012) - Jackson Design and Remodeling is happy to announce that two of its projects will be featured on the American Society of Interior Designers' self-guided Fall Kitchen & Bath Tour on Saturday, October 27. The tour, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., will showcase 15 beautifully remodeled kitchens and 6 baths at residences in San Diego County. JDR has two kitchens on the Fall Tour: A Colonial Coastal Kitchen in Del Mar and a Vibrant Eclectic Kitchen in Talmadge (College area).

Colonial Coastal Kitchen Remodel

JDR Senior Interior Designer Tatiana Machado-Rosas worked with the clients who, as part of their whole home remodel, wanted their kitchen to embrace its natural surroundings while honoring the aesthetics of East Coast Colonials. Strategic space planning was essential for this kitchen, which was moved to a part of the house that better captured ocean views and designed with three entrances for ideal access and circulation. This refreshing interpretation of Colonial aesthetics celebrates the light and air of coastal living while uniting careful layout choices, rigorous detailing and nostalgic elements that evoke an East Coast mood.

Vibrant Eclectic Kitchen Remodel

JDR Senior Interior Designer Sol Quintana Wagoner used vibrant color, engaging textures and an appealing blend of cultural influences in this kitchen remodel. The homeowners, a creative couple, wanted a new kitchen with modern functionality that honored the original character of their 1920s Spanish-style home. Space planning visually connects the kitchen with the rest of the home, creating an open line of sight from the back to the front and suffusing the area in natural light. A one-of-a-kind piece of rustic wood establishes a distinct area of the extra large island. Cabinets in darkly stained cherry wood against vibrant walls create exciting visual depth in a kitchen that artfully integrates eclectic elements. This kitchen is being sponsored in part by West Elm.

"This is a great opportunity for San Diego homeowners considering a remodel to check out the latest trends, appliances and surfaces, and learn how to avoid design pitfalls," said Todd Jackson, President of JDR. "These kitchens reflect a variety of design styles - from Old World Italian-style, to contemporary, eclectic and traditional. There is something to inspire every attendee. And all the designers, including Sol and Tatiana, will be on hand to answer questions. This is one of our favorite design events in San Diego and we're excited to be a part of it."
