A Day with Kevin Wilkes of Princeton Design Guild

I got to spend the day with Kevin Wilkes, founder of Princeton Design Guild, a complete design, build and install firm based in Princeton, NJ. They engage craftsmen and artisans at each step of their process. Thought it would be fun to brighten our day with some orange after seeing this floor to ceiling chimney tiled in glass. This reminds me of Rosa Mexicana, a great restaurant space in NYC by Lincoln Center. The color just makes one want to celebrate at the boldness to do it. Right? I love the windows that let the light stream on it. This Princeton home sits proudly in an established neighborhood. Solar panels are hidden on the roof and add the sustainability factor that we are all thinking about these days.
