January took an old and sadly outdated kitchen and turned it into the sleek and totally functional kitchen that had existed only in our imagination. January is a joy to work with. She oversees every detail - working with us to get the kitchen that was in our minds onto paper and then suggesting improvements and adding details that really make all the difference. She worked directly with the cabinet makers and then with our builder to guarantee that the end result was perfectly executed. During an extensive remodeling and addition for our home, January took all the worry out of one of the most crucial aspects of the project. The result is perfection!

I have collaborated on dozens of projects with January over the past nine years. She has always impressed me not only with her sophistication and professionalism, but also with her refined sensitivity and her ability to integrate kitchen, bath and cabinetry design seamlessly into a home. January's understanding of design intent enables her work to completely reinforce what we strive to do in our own - I would recommend January to any architect seeking a strong partner to deliver elegant and beautiful solutions to their clients.

We are thrilled with our new contemporary kitchen.

January is outstanding in her field and can guide you through the myriad of selections and design decisions with such ease that you'll enjoy the process as much as the result.
We received terrific help from January in designing our kitchen. She came highly recommended and, like others, it was "design from a distance". We were in Maryland and she was in Massachusetts. January demonstrated that good design is good design and that geography is irrelevent. The keys to her success were to understand us, our lifestyle and our needs. We wanted two spaces within the overall kitchen where we and our friends could cook and visit simultaneously. Thanks to January, it is the heart of our home.
Caren and Jane, Edgewater, MD
We first employed Kitchen Style in 1996 to renovate our kitchen. January has a talent for maximizing flow in small spaces and even fit in an eating peninsula to our surprise. We ordered our cabinets locally and everything fit perfectly. We were so pleased with the result that we called January last year to design our guest house kitchen and were thrilled with the outcome once again.

When I introduce January to our clients, I never have to worry about her part of the project again. She uses her creative and analytical skills to implement the most exciting and appropriate design solution for our clients, while never compromising her unique ability to see the project all the way through installation.
- Jake Wright, Principal, Jacob Forest Wright Architecture/Building
January sent us an extremely detailed, but easily comprehensible, set of questions which outlined what we wished to achieve in the kitchen. We then started a process of detailed design, whereby January prepared a number of layouts with views from all directions, and suggested imaginative solutions for all the gadgets we needed. She had a number of suggestions to make the kitchen more easily workable. The design process went very smoothly and our cabinets arrived in great condition. The result was that the kitchen greatly exceeded our expectations with regard to style, efficiency of design and ease of use, and has now been in faultless operation for just over three years.

I‘m a licensed architect. My association with January is a decade plus. She is a breath of fresh air in her profession. First for her knowledge and professionalism, but beyond that January possesses some unique qualities. Her genuine concern for the interests of clients, her warmth and ability to guide them through the myriad choices in realizing their “dream kitchen," and her absolute commitment to doing what is possible for “the Budget“ sets her apart from many in the field.

Kitchen design can be accomplished long distance. Our very small kitchen was torn out and an addition was constructed which contained a large, airy kitchen, dining area, powder room, and foyer. Communicating frequently by email, we described our ‘dream kitchen‘ to January, and she incorporated our ideas into a spacious, well designed room. Her expertise was invaluable in helping us with the layout, placement of windows, selecting appliances and providing cabinets. January emailed us three-dimensional drawings which enabled us to visualize the layout. Our very functional yet beautiful kitchen continues to be the focal point in our home.

I wanted to convey our thanks for your design help. The quality of your work and the speed of turnaround on deliverables were exceptional, as was your general responsiveness and positive demeanor throughout the process.
- Frank P, New York City
In the seven years that I worked with January, she helped 22 vastly different clients design and deliver the vision of their kitchen: from modern to transitional. You will find her skilled and well connected with the manufacturers required.
