a letter from the publisher

I walk into the kitchen

and I am still shocked. Its a completely different world!IrIs DavIs

every morning

I think we can all relate to Iris reaction. Whether youve built a new home or renovated your existing home, you will probably never forget the first time you laid eyes on your new digs. For most of you, that jawdropping moment is forever seared in your memory. I can understand Iris shockher kitchen remodel is nothing short of remarkable. Iris and her husband, David Friedman, were able to take their outdated and cramped kitchen and transform it into the contemporary masterpiece it is today. In fact, their home is just one of several contemporary homes were featuring in this issue. Contemporary design is very elusive in southern Ohio. Often misunderstood for being cold and stark, we think this issue proves contemporary is anything but. As we kick off our twelfth year in the Greater Miami Valley, we want to acknowledge and thank all the families who have allowed us to feature their homes over the years. It has been an honor and privilege to meet each and every homeowner and be given the opportunity to showcase their homes in our magazine. We hope you enjoy reading about some of the contemporary homes sprinkled throughout our area. Be sure to check out our Facebook page for a preview of our Outdoor Living issue. Sincerely,
