Welcome.

My name is Margot Austin and I am the editor-in-chief of The Design Edit, a collection of the best design stories I encounter in my life as a stylist and design communications specialist. Read on to meet top talents, get inspired by beautiful spaces, find out about innovative products and  maybe even try one of my dead-easy DIY projects. I look forward to connecting with you, a fellow design hound.

KBIS 2017 + Top 10 Bathrooms

KBIS 2017 + Top 10 Bathrooms

Happy New Year! The first week of 2017 finds me doing some pre-gaming in sunny old school Florida. I'm priming myself for a few full days of immersion in all things new for kitchens and baths at KBIS 2017. The show takes place next week (Jan. 10-12) in Orlando and I'm psyched to be rejoining the BlogTour group of bloggers/designers who will be reporting on the news. As you may know, BlogTour is organized by the fantastic Veronika Miller, Florence Von Pelet and the rest of the team at Modenus/DesignHounds. I have joined this group on two other tours -- one to the West Edge design fair in LA and one to see the Ambiente homewares trade show in Frankfurt. The Modenus crew organizes sponsors to underwrite the travel costs of the attendees and in exchange, we create a series of blog and social media posts. Sponsors for this tour are:

I look forward to bringing you all the news from these companies and more that I spot at the show. Meanwhile, in anticipation of the festivities I thought I'd share the top bathroom designs that are inspiring me now. (and in case you missed my first KBIS post, check out my favourite kitchen designs here.) Please enjoy!
