I recently returned from speaking in five US cities to kitchen, interior designers and architects on The Kitchen Instinct.  During my visit I noticed the economies in these cities are thriving, the optimism we associate with America still in evidence. I observed a continuing interest in new ideas, in particular the possibilities offered by digital technology.

I ended my tour talking to the Smart Kitchen Summit, on The Disrupting Kitchen, to an audience of tech experts in Seattle at SODO Park.  The event consisted of informed discussion panels on a wide range of topics, all of which can be found on the website,  www.smartkitchensummit.com; Here's my presentation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWKf6L6BMQ4

And thank you Seattle, Portland, Houston, LA and Scottsdale, including the team at Bond Events for your generous hospitality, enthusiasm and great feedback.

Welcome NYT readers to Johnny Grey Studios – where we campaign for more exciting, more relevant kitchen design – and then make it happen.  Kitchens are recreational spaces. Eye contact while you cook we do as basic; our planning allows for you to ‘flow’ around kitchen with easy body movement. Want to view your food properly after it’s cooked and is ready for serving? We always include a long food bar, a key part of the design. Like to chat while you cook? We provide perching points at strategic places.

We build kitchens throughout America - with offices on the East and West Coast, as well as all over the world, (see our portfolio pages drop down menu).

f you love cooking, enjoy entertaining, want to eat outside and like the idea your garden being part of your kitchen you have arrived at the right place.
