It's here! Our favorite time of year when we can look back on a year's worth of stunning kitchen and bath designs featuring recycled glass surfaces.

(An amazing amount of style variety in this year's designs.)
When she sent her husband to the stone yard with a countertop sample, Karen Bednorz thought her dream kitchen had black counters. But when Gary called for her to look at a sample of cobalt blue and white recycled glass countertops she said, "That's it! That's the one."

For 20 years she’s been playing with color and building palettes, in graphic design, merchandising, color consulting, and for the last eight years, as the Vice President of Color and Creative Services at BEHR Paint.
