What happens in Vegas shouldn’t always stay in Vegas. Really. Some things are meant to be shared! To wrap up my reporting from KBIS, I thought I would share a few of my favorite images, and a couple of recipes* from the show.
Some of the photo’s subjects are interesting, each is beautiful in it’s own way, and some are expensive. The rest are one-of-a-kind, and impossible to reproduce. (You’ll see what I mean!)
I’ll let you know which category each image falls into, and I’ll bet you can come up with ways to incorporate some of these ideas in to your home. If you get inspired, I would love to see your DIY projects, so please, feel free to share. I would love to see what you can conjure up on your budget!

I have had the honor and pleasure of staying at The American Club in Kohler, Wisconsin. If you find yourself in the area, you must go and play a round of golf at Whistling Straits, visit the Kohler showroom and factory, and then rejuvenate at the spa.
