The 2011 design competition organized by the Baltimore- Washington Chapter of the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) welcomed close to 100 entries from area designers. Sponsored by Home & Design, the contest invites experienced area professionals to judge each submission; this year, the jury included Ernesto Santalla, AIA, LEED AP, of Studio Santalla, Inc.; Barbara Hawthorn of Barbara Hawthorn Interiors, Ltd.; Skip Sroka, CID, ASID, of Sroka Design Incorporated; and Sharon Jaffe Dan, editor in chief of Home & Design.
