2011 BEST Kitchen Design
Leslie-Jon A. Vickory
A former project manager for a design-build company, Vickory is at home with interior architectur—she creates whole kitchens (from windows to molding to lighting) rather than plunking cabinetry willy-nilly into a room. Because her work is carefully considered and integrated, she avoids major kitchen no-nos like the overdominant refrigerator and the dinky pendant light. Vickory doesn’t have a set style, but classic or modern, her designs are always delicious.
