Oak Park Family Center Hosts 28th Annual Kitchen Walk
“One day. 10 kitchens. Endless inspiration,” is the tagline for the 28th Parenthesis Family Center Kitchen Walk in Oak Park, and with preparations in full swing, the ten stunning kitchens to be featured have been carefully selected. There’s one kitchen that we’re quite fond of, in particular, that was created by Normandy Designer Stephanie Bryant, CKD, and has been featured in numerous publications and won multiple awards. It is located in a historic neighborhood with Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired architecture and it was important to the homeowners that Bryant be sensitive to the style, but not stress it in the new design. “The final result is a beautiful kitchen that complements the rest of the home while making a statement of its own with contemporary light fixtures and warm hues,” says Stephanie.
“This kitchen has gained so much publicity and I’m thrilled that it is now featured in something that truly benefits the community,” commented Stephanie. What originated 28 years ago as a kitchen walk that sold 400 tickets has evolved into an event that is attended by over 1,000 people, and is the Parenthesis Family Center’s biggest fundraiser of the year raising over $50,000 for their programs. “It’s events like these that make a community closer, more supportive, and just stronger all around,” says Stephanie. “I’m going to be there to show my support and encourage anyone that can make it to do so; this inside look of 10 remarkable kitchens is great for inspiration.”
The event will be held on April 27, 2013, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., showcasing kitchens in Oak Park and River Forest. Normandy has two free tickets available (an $80 value) to the first person to claim them and can come in to pick them up at the Normandy Remodeling Design Showroom (440 E Ogden Ave, Hinsdale IL) by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 28.
