After Big Wins at NKBA and CotY Awards, Jackson Design & Remodeling Continues 25th Anniversary Winning Streak with Three Chrysalis Awards

Winning kitchens and bathroom showcase distinct styles: retro, glittering drama and European charm.

    SAN DIEGO, CA, May 21, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- San Diego remodeling firm Jackson Design & Remodeling (JDR), is proud to announce the company has won three regional Chrysalis Awards for Remodeling Excellence. JDR's winning projects include the transformation of two kitchens and one bathroom representing a diverse range of design styles. The Chrysalis Awards are one of the most competitive awards programs in the design and remodeling industry. JDR's wins were in the Southwestern division.

"2014 is a very special year for us at JDR," said Todd Jackson, CEO and Founder of Jackson Design and Remodeling. "We are currently celebrating our 25th year in business, so getting recognition for our hard work reinforces why we all come to work every day - it's about delivering exceptional quality work and becoming a true partner with our clients. We want to thank Professional Remodeler and their staff and everyone who was a part of the Chrysalis program. These awards are truly an honor."

The Chrysalis awards seek to praise those in the remodeling industry with exceptional work: honoring talent, creativity and professionalism. Entries were judged on overall design, the creative use of space and materials, and the degree to which the project enhanced the original structure. JDR's three winning projects include:

Bath Remodel Under $40,000: Glittering Drama
This small powder bath continues to rack up awards this year, already winning the NKBA "Best Bath" in the nation, a national Contractor of the Year award and a Master Design Award. The design team, led by Senior Interior Designer Sol Quintana Wagoner, Member ASID; Assistant Designer Vanessa Tejera; and Architectural Designer John Kavan, created the award-winning bathroom using Asian-inspired themes. The client, a couple that frequently entertains guests from their professional circle, wanted a new powder room to make a dramatic impression and express their affinity for Asian themes. The room is entered through an elegant black pocket door with Shoji-style panels. An ochre wall, designed with a trio of glowing niches to display collectibles, was built to conceal the venting system, allowing for the addition of a free-standing vanity with an arced onyx sink. A tile wall gleams in hues of ebony, gold and dark brown, illuminated by gold leaf lighting. Visiting this Asian-inspired powder room is a seductive, unforgettable experience.

Best Kitchen $50,000-$75,000: Retro Revival
The JDR team, led by Senior Designer Rosella Gonzalez, Member ASID; Assistant Designer Karina Delgadillo; and Architectural Designer Chris Ashby, created this dream kitchen for a client with an enthusiastic appreciation of retro design. This sunny ode to kitchens of the past is a cheerful retreat for today. The client wanted a kitchen that expressed her fun, unconventional taste while providing modern convenience. Space was borrowed from an office to provide more open area and easier navigation in the kitchen. Retro-inspired appliances in buttery yellow are key design elements. Black trim against the yellow tile countertops defines the kitchen's lines. Playful positioning of contrasting floor tiles presents a quirky interpretation of traditional checkerboard in this classic kitchen with an original point of view.

Best Kitchen $75,000-$100,000: European Charm
The JDR team led by Senior Interior Designer Tatiana Machado-Rosas, Member ASID; Assistant Designer Alison Green, Member ASID; and Architectural Designer Chris Ashby, designed this space for a couple that loves to entertain. This kitchen, in a 100-year old Kensington home, was lacking in functionality and space. The homeowners wanted to significantly transform the kitchen while honoring the original Spanish design-influenced character of the home. A custom black hood above a white peninsula is the new kitchen's focal point. The black and white theme repeats throughout the room, particularly in the concrete backsplash. The design blends hints of European charm with a modern sensibility and retains its sense of place in historic surroundings. The clients are thrilled with their new space, which welcomes gatherings large and small.

"Winning awards in multiple categories is difficult to do. Not only does this speak to JDR's versatility, but to their commitment to quality on every project," says Ken Kanline, Director of the Chrysalis Awards.

Pictures of the 2014 award-winning projects can be seen on the Chrysalis website,, and on beginning in late June.
