Editor Linda Grasso Reveals Her new Dacor Kitchen in Ventura Blvd Magazine

It’s a design truth that if you redo one thing in your home, you’ll suddenly need to redo everything around it. Such was the case for Linda Grasso, Editor-in-Chief of Ventura Blvd magazine, whose interior paint refresh turned into a whole new kitchen.

We couldn’t be more excited to see the completed project, which is built around the fantastic selection of Dacor appliances that Linda found at Snyder Diamond's North Hollywood showroom. She chose pieces from the company’s new Modernist Collection and, working with Orit Srour, brought in some of our most favorite local brands (Modern Aire oven hoods, California Faucets and Emtek hardware) to round out the renovation. You can read the whole feature below, so beautifully photographed by Shane O'Donnell

To celebrate the July issue (and the new kitchen, of course), Linda hosted a party at her home. The soiree featured small bites from BLVD Kitchen in Sherman Oaks, Honey Bubbles sparkling moscato, Lyric by Etude pinot noir and chardonnay, s'mores from S'moreology and party favor bouquets from Rose Lane Farms in NoHo. Choura Events, Penta Water and photographer Tameka Jacobs deserve a special shout out, too. Below are a few photographs from the event. Thank you, Linda!
