I'm here in Chicago for KBIS

Hello kitchen fans! Had a great flight yesterday on JetBlue. JetBlue is either fantastic or horrible. Yesterday, on a week's old plane, it was great.

Today, I attended two half day seminars. The first was on kitchen ventilation (use your hood or else all these little particulates will get over everything...heat, vapors, and food particulates, yuck.) Just use it. But, a lot more on this later, I'll expand on what was covered in the seminar (I know you're on the very edge of your seats for this but you'll have to be patient.)  ;)

And, I attended a seminar on green residential design. As things, products, and philosophies change fairly quickly, it's important to keep up to date. Took tons of notes and will expand on that too.

Then, off to a GE press event (LOVE those press events!) More on THAT too. Meanwhile, here's a photo I took of a small spot of the show floor, but trust me, this is what the whole show floor looked like this afternoon, and this was less than 24 hours before the show starts! This is typical, and somehow miraculously, the displays get constructed, wall to wall carpeting goes down on the entire show floor, and the show begins! I REALLY need my sleep now, more soon!

Amazing isn't it, how they put it all together? My sister-in-law had a booth at the Architechtural Digest show (maybe you saw it? it was the Paris Apartment, the one with all the cool lucite furniture and crystal chandeliers and satin headboards and glam objects). She posted pictures on her blog as she was getting everything set up (www.parisapartment.wordpress.com) and we were worried that she had been too ambitious in what she wanted to do, and then of course it turned out to be spectacular. Don't know how she pulled it off. She always does. I wish I could link directly to her posts about the show, but I don't know how. March 8 was the first picture of her booth.

Jean, are you kidding? That booth stopped me in my tracks! There is one word to describe that booth...it was dreamy, and it is probably one of a few that remain in my mind very specifically. Onward, I'm already late!!

Yes, it was dreamy wasn't it? I thought it was the prettiest booth in the whole show. Claudia is incredibly talented, and has an amazing eye for beauty. Too bad all that gorgeous lucite furniture costs a King's ransom.
