2013 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show


Is anybody out there?

I know, I know we’ve been away for a while, but the creative spark keeps burning!  So much so it is  a firework show in the PPDS office! Please forgive us. We love sharing our excitement about design so here is a glance of what we’ve been up to. We recently returned from the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS 2013) in New Orleans. Can you imagine:

  • LED lighting in your tub or sink?
  • How about music in the shower or tub? You will never get your teenager out of the bathroom!
  • Another surprising innovation is LED lighting integrated into molding trim. This can be used in kitchens, stairs, etc. . .

You can’t visit New Orleans without experiencing a few oddities. Here are a few pictures of our favorites that we cannot wait to show you!

  • Check out the monkey wall sconce or alligator host.
  • Antiques are also big business.  Here is my Father admiring a knight and horse in full body armor.
  • Look at The Hotel Indigo in the Garden District. I really like the way they designed their check in desk.  Cool!


Stay tuned to stay up-to-date on our other current projects including:

  • A new space for a green company in East Austin
  • Residences in Barton Creek and Spanish Oaks
  • Multi-Family Developments in Austin, Cedar Park,  Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio
  • Sushi Restaurant Expansion in Fort Meyers, FL
