We left yesterday’s Twitter #KBTribeChat inspired by the knowledge and wisdom of some of the industry’s top professionals. We were pleased to participate in a vibrant discussion on the latest home design trends. From color schemes to generational tendencies, learn the latest buzz in kitchen and bath trends straight from the experts themselves!
