Carla Kalwaitis - Carla Kalwaitis Design

Carla Kalwaitis of Carla Kalwaitis Design (Rancho Mirage, CA) took home First Place Contemporary kitchen along with first place
in the Regional category and was selected as a National finalist, totaling a winning prize of $42,500.

With regard to why she chose Dacor appliances for the project, she stated, “Dacor’s Contemporary line is unlike anything else
on the market. The style is full of conversation pieces - from the technology, design and graphite finish – it appeals to a younger,
professional audience, which is exactly what I was looking for.”
