Doreve Nicholaeff, president of Nicholaeff Architecture + Design, located in Osterville, is pleased to announce her participation in the presentation, “Kitchen: the new living room” on Thursday, June 9th from 6:00PM to 8:00PM at the Poggenpohl showroom, 135 Newbury Street in Boston.

Ms. Nicholaeff along with Rosemary Porto of Poggenpohl, Dawn Carroll of Cumar, Fine Stone and Payne Bouchier Fine Builders will give the final seminar in the 2011 Real Solutions for the Home seminar series presented by Design New England Magazine. The seminar series was created with the intent of offering practical advice from industry experts to homeowners.

“Kitchen: the new living room” will explore how the kitchen is not just for cooking anymore. The panel of professionals will illustrate the new dynamic of the kitchen, and address topics of design, functionality and unexpected finishes so the end result will be a kitchen that exceeds your expectations.

Nicholaeff Architecture + Design, founded by Doreve Nicholaeff, approaches architecture in the analysis of the context, the site, its characteristics – topography, geology, indigenous vegetation, wind direction, orientation, surrounding houses, borrowed view paths, and the architectural vocabulary. Ms. Nicholaeff is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), and the Boston Society of Architects. Her firm is consistently featured in both regional and national home and design publications including Fine Homebuilding Kitchen & Baths, Renovation Style, Florida Design, Boston Common, New England Home Cape & Islands, Better Homes & Gardens Beautiful Baths and the Boston Globe Magazine among others.

The seminar is free and open to the public. Space is limited, advance registration is required. Call (617) 929-2641, or visit to register.
