Aston Smith, Designer
Aston Smith joined Bilotta’ s design team in 2012 with 20 years in residential design. Her particular expertise in kitchen and home furnishings design reflects her college background in fine arts and design where she first discovered her interest in the balance and function of form.
As a designer Aston believes that by finding the right blend of her clients intent with her own vision of a rooms form and function, is essential to creating a truly beautiful working kitchen. She gets the most satisfaction from running into former clients and hearing what they love about their project. Aston says “Once clients have really had a chance to live in the space and are over the immediate ‘wow’ of everything new and exciting, they start to understand and notice the thought you put into creating their space,” she says. “Hearing those post-completion reviews makes all the hard work worth it!” Aston enjoys a strong following of both retail and trade clientele who come back to her for her considerable experience and talent.
Aston is also known for her lectures at numerous industry events including Bilotta trade presentations and classes and career days for students interested in entering the design field. She has an extensive following on various social media sites including her blog on kitchen design trends. You can see her Fall 2013 Dwell Magazine interview about the importance of selecting the right appliances for your kitchen.
