Zephyr Announces Zephyr Loves Designers Contest Winners

SAN FRANCISCO, February 21, 2024 — Zephyr, the company that has transformed the kitchen with design, discovery and customer care, announces the winners of its 2023 Zephyr Loves Designers contest. The winners in the Ventilation category are Rachel Moriarty Interiors (Siena Wall Range Hood) and Elizabeth Aaron Interior Design (Ravenna Wall Range Hood). The Presrv™ Refrigeration category winners are Triple C Farmhouse (Presrv™ 24-inch Single Zone Beverage Cooler) and Jennifer Wundrow Interior Design (Presrv 24-inch Dual Zone Wine Cooler and 15-Inch Beverage Cooler).

Rachel Moriarty Interiors designed a beach house in La Jolla, CA with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean. The client’s love for the color blue served as the muse in this renovation project, and the moment guests step into the space they see the counter-to-ceiling blue patterned tile feature. “Since no kitchen is complete without an incredible appliance suite, we paired a cobalt range with a modern Zephyr Siena hood,” says Moriarty. “The hood serves as more than just a functional exhaust system. I selected it for its sleek and polished design that shines like a beacon and adds the perfect touch of modernity to this space. The organic interplay between the blue tiles, carefully chosen appliances, and the ocean scenery creates a serene atmosphere that echoes the beauty of the natural surroundings.”

Elizabeth Aaron Interior Design completed a project for a busy professional who loves to cook. She used a monochromatic palette achieved by pairing slab doors and drawers in continuous grain to complement the client’s existing floor. The clients opted for channel pulls instead of hardware and paneled appliances, which gives the kitchen an “un-kitchen” feel. “Zephyr is my go-to for range hoods (and under-counter refrigeration!),” says Aaron. “I love the Zephyr Ravenna hood because it is sleek and modern with the curved glass canopy, features quiet blowers, and easy-to-clean filters. Zephyr is an industry innovator and I know I can trust their products performance to keep my clients’ homes free of indoor air pollutants.”

When lifestyle influencer and designer Karon Padgett with Triple C Farmhouse designed her bar area, she wanted it to be unlike any other space in the home. Given its centralized location, Padgett sought to create a space that she could use for entertaining guests, but also an area where guests felt they could help themselves. “I incorporated the Presrv™ Beverage Cooler in this space because of its sleek modern design, and it allows guests to see drink options without even opening the cooler,” says Padgett. “Watching our family and friends feel comfortable and welcome in our home is a dream come true!”

Jennifer Wundrow Interior Design wanted the bar area in her recent remodel to be an extension of the kitchen. The Bay Area-based team opened the kitchen and hallway walls, so it now feels as though this space is a part of something bigger. The original kitchen was outdated so she used white oak for the cabinetry and floating shelves and marble for the countertops to bring it more into this decade. “We’ve found that Zephyr products are some of the best in refrigeration, while not as expensive as other brands,” says Wundrow. “They are efficient while also being beautifully designed and high-functioning, which fits perfectly with our design aesthetic and principles.”
