The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) names
National CotY™ (Contractor of the Year) Winners.


Minneapolis, MN: April 27, 2020 — The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) named Bluestem Construction in St. Louis Park, MN,  2020 National CotY winner in the Residential Bath over $100,000 category in its’ annual awards competition held on Friday, April 24, 2020 during its virtual Evening Excellence celebration.

This master bathroom that was dripping in outdated 80’s opulence and needed to get its mid-century mojo back. A radical reconfiguration featuring a private WC and open-air bathing area set the stage for a bold, new palette of color, pattern and texture. Stillness and effervescence play off each other as the bright cerulean blue floor tiles wash into the geometric shower floor with a playful live edge. A trio of tall, ebony-framed windows set below the sloped ceiling features daytime views on the trees and lake beyond. Polished chrome fixtures, accessories and stunning retro atomic-age light fixtures top off this timeless look.
