Can you spare 5 minutes?

busy work do post notes list chaotic conceptI know you’re very busy, but if you join me here for a short time each week I’ll be posting an inspiring new blog on a variety of topics related to design, our products, and what’s going on with trends. (It’s also an excuse to take a coffee, tea or a five-minute mental break!) You can read it over, add your thoughts, ask questions or just send over a smiley face! You’ll walk away with a little insight and a maybe even a little less stress.

For those of you I haven’t met yet…

Hello, I’m Suzanne and I’ve been part of the Medallion Marketing team – entrusted with inspiring our audience through design – for over 17 years. You will find my work in much of the photography on our website. I have been a kitchen and bath designer for almost three decades, and I’ll be the first to tell you I don’t know it all and probably never will! For me, designing is a never-ending journey filled with inspiration and challenges at each milestone.

Join me on a mission!

Success TeamworkMy desire is to create a Medallion-exclusive community in which to inspire, educate and explore. To connect and gain from one another’s experiences. The complexity of our industry and what a designer needs to know today vs. 20 years ago is pretty monumental…which leaves the obvious question: How can this blog make a difference? Well, one article at a time with your support and feedback. If you like it, let me know. If you want to know more about a topic, let me know! And of course, if you don’t like it, I still want to know! After all…

It’s really a mindset thing:

Creative thinking

In other words, great designers are naturally inclined to seek out new ideas to become better –  for our own sense of accomplishment and for our customers and the services we offer.  And as the poem says, no man is an island, so here I am, inside this blog, to help us all connect and to let you know that we (the Medallion team) are here alongside you to help you get to the next level!

Before you go… 

I’d like to share our wider goal of how we approach every point you will touch with us on your journey with our brand and products:

We are a community that provides design, product and resource information – through the strength of connectivity – to nurture your mind and help you grow your business. We strive to deliver essential content to enhance your skills, empower your confidence and inspire you!


Thanks for stopping by and reading my first blog. Let’s do it again next week!
