Our Tresham bathroom collection is all about personalization, and to celebrate this mantra, we created the Tresham Keepsake Contest.

Hundreds of participants submitted photos and stories of their most treasured items, from beautiful tea cups passed down through generations to handmade cribbage boards carried through World War II. Each entry offered the perfect bit of personalization to design a space around.

Our panel of judges, Peter Som & Jane Loddo of Harper’s Bazaar, Karla Martinez of W magazine, Katy Brennan of Vanity Fair, and Kohler’s creative team, carefully and painstakingly selected the final grand prize winner and three runners-up.

And so, without further ado, our grand prize winner is…

Matt Martel

Matt submitted a photo of his grandfather Gremillion’s paintbrushes.

In his own words: ”A painter for 45 years, my grandfather maintained a beautiful collection of vintage American, pure bristle brushes. Made by hand of all natural materials and intended to last, they are perfect representations of my grandfather.”

Congratulations, Matt. You win a trip for two to NYC, a visit to Hearst’s Designer Visions apartments, $10,000 in Kohler product, a Robern M Series cabinet, up to $4,000 to use in W magazine’s ABC Bathroom and Home, and consultation from an Architectural Digest designer.

Thanks to all of our participants for sharing your treasures with us, and stay tuned as we reveal the runners-up!
