Catherine Snowden

Catherine Snowden is a designer for D’Asign Source, a general contractor, architect, interior design and landscape firm based in Marathon, Florida and serving the Florida Keys and south Florida. Ms. Snowden is the tenth monthly winner in the 2015 Viking Kitchen Design Competition. Designers from around the United States are vying for the coveted honor to become the 2015 Viking Designer of the Year to be awarded in November.

Catherine Snowden graduated summa cum laude from the University of Florida in 2008 with a Bachelor of Design degree and again in 2009 with a Master of Science degree in construction management with a focus on sustainable construction. Upon graduation she began working for D’Asign Source in kitchen and cabinetry design.

Located in Marathon, Florida, the winning design is a new kitchen for homeowners who are avid fishermen with a passion for cooking. “At the heart of the kitchen is an impressive 60” dual fuel Viking range with custom hood that takes full advantage of the soaring ceilings,” said Snowden. “The homeowner’s personality was worked into every detail; a fish scale pattern can be found on molding details and, most noticeably, on the handmade fish scale tiles that adorn the custom built hood.”

Other features of the design include a custom panel Viking 30” All Refrigerator and 30” All Freezer that flank a custom arched entry into an extensive pantry. Designed with entertaining in mind, the kitchen also hosts a built in banquet and bar that allows friends and family to grab a seat while the chef cooks up the catch of the day.
