a letter from the publisher
A good home must be made, not bought. —Joyce Maynard
No truer words have ever been spoken! Anyone who has purchased a house relies on their instincts, with the belief they will create a perfect home. This issue highlights many of the great kitchens and baths found in and around our city. You’ll meet Charlotte and David Stephenson, who recently updated their Mt. Lebanon Tudor to include a warm and inviting kitchen and dining area. Our Bathroom Trends centers on Rose Anna and Joe Covelli, who hadn’t planned their remodeling project until after a water pipe burst in their Jefferson Hills abode. The dazzling master bath is one of many renovations the Covellis have undertaken over the past year. We’re also showcasing a brand new kitchen in Ligonier which recently won The Pittsburgh Kitchen Design Competition, as well as a stunning kitchen restoration in Sewickley. We’ve also expanded our Fresh Finds section. We are now featuring segments on the latest and most innovative products and technology as it pertains to your furniture, flooring and lighting. Please check out Housetrends. com and our Facebook page for even more design tips and ideas. This issue marks the beginning of our fifth year, an appropriate time to introduce Christina Kleiner, our new editor. Christina is excited to take on the challenge, and is looking forward to keeping you captivated with the best design projects this city has to offer. On behalf of the Housetrends staff and me, please join me in welcoming her to Pittsburgh! Enjoy Housetrends’ Kitchen and Bath issue! We’re looking ahead to our Spring issue (hurray Phil!), where we’ll be presenting several comfortable, chic outdoor living spaces and gardens sprinkled throughout the city.
