Kitchen Designer, Rebecca Reynolds & Bertazzoni Ranges
REBECCA REYNOLDS & BERTAZZONI
Rebecca Reynolds is the president of New Canaan Kitchens in Connecticut. She is also the Co-Founder of the Kitchen Design Network, an online design source for kitchen obsessed consumers, designers and brands featuring kitchen design inspiration, resources, trends, food and cooking culture, travel, industry luminaries and so much more. Kitchen Design Network will premier in April. As a nationally acclaimed designer, Rebecca has created award-winning projects throughout New England, the South, the West Coast and Europe during her 20-year career. Her design aesthetic is a blend of traditional and modern, always with an artistic eye to use neutral palettes with color, unique materials that suggest a past and present that create thoughtful smart designs that live well.
Rebecca met this design challenge by selecting a Bertazzoni range. She explains, “Designing hundreds of kitchens over the past 20 years has given me an inside perspective on a lot of ranges, their changing styles and the advancement of the latest technologies. When it was time to renovate the kitchen in my home, oh my goodness… decisions, decisions. When designers make choices for their own homes it can be very difficult. Like many of our clients we too have a budget, a spouse or partner to compromise with about selections and project deadlines to meet, however it’s even more difficult because we’re aware of many more options than the average consumer (or we were at least until Pinterest and HOUZZ came along).
Rebecca adds, “I have never been the type of designer that needed to follow trends, so when renovating my own kitchen I was looking for a range that was stylish, cooked well and was affordable. As a woman that loves anything Italian, once my suppliers introduced me to the beautiful Bertazzoni range it was love at first sight. I fell for the sleek styling of the knobs and simple detail to the front lines, the choice of the fiery bold colors and the pro style cooking. It was the perfect fit for me and now for several of my projects. Buon Apetito!
Francesco Bertazzoni started making wood burning stoves in northern Italy in 1882 and the principles they used then in creating a precision engineered range is still evident in everything they do today. Their Heritage Series, as seen above, is inspired by their roots and fits in with any classic kitchen.
