Artifacts by Kohler

artifacts_kohler

The Artifacts faucet line by Kohler is a selective faucet line with much to select from. There are three handle choices, as well as three spouts in gorgeous traditional and industrial looks anyone could love. The spout designs are teapot, bell, and column, and the handles are available as prong, swing and lever. Here are my two favorites: Read more

The Case Of The Well Lit Mirror

Electric MIrror Integrity built in light

Lighting is everything. Functionality of a room, aesthetics, and appreciation for what goes into designing a room can all be lost if not for the case of well lighting. And these darling mirrors from Electric Mirror are a fantastic example of thoughtful design. A light placed above a mirror can cause your reflection to have an interrogation room feel, which is just great for first thing in the morning. Lights placed on wither side of a mirror cannot always be done if space will not allow for it, and that eats into the wall space you have allowed for a mirror. So build it in, have the light frame your face the way photographers use reflector panels to give proper exposure of light.

Barely There Bath

Barely There Bath Laura Burton

The simplicity of this bath design by Laura Burton is quite pretty and clean. The trick is to treat the bathroom like any other room in your home; choose a fantastic mirror, a large base molding, and fashionable glass topped table for setting various bath needs. The floor was selected in a tight pattern to anchor the room, much like a patterned carpet would. The Hatbox Purist toilet shown here may be discontinued by Kohler, but the new Numi is a similar design.

Age In Place Bath

Moen Age in place bath

Aging in place for the older generation can be hazardous, particularly poorly planned bathrooms. With slick tiles, shower thresholds that are harder to step over, and lack of the necessary aids, it is no wonder The New York Times raises the thought that the bathroom is the most dangerous room in the home. It is very dangerous to use a generic towel bar or even door knob to steady oneself or gain leverage, and now the options to help are more readily available than every before. The new grabs bars for example, don’t look like the institutional styles that first come to mind. B in the image above is a grab bar and paper holder in one. Read more

Mirrored Mosaic Tiles

Royalton Hotel New York Alcove Suite Mirrored Tile Tub

Nothing compares to the reflection of natural light and the purity and serenity it implies. That is certainly the case in the Alcove Suite at the Royalton Hotel in New York. Designed by Philippe Starck, the tub surround is studded with mirrored tiles. It is just magical. A monochromatic scheme or very neutral palette works best when using a lot of mirror, otherwise, you may get a look that is way too busy.

Urban Corner Glass Shower

Maax Urban Corner Glass Shower Rainmax

The Collection Line by Maax is incredibly inspirational, and the Urban Shower is one of their shining examples. It is a wonderful option for a shower when you don’t want to break up a large bathroom with walls, but want to have a contained space for luxurious showering. See the large overhead component? That is the Rainmax square showerhead, it’s massive when you compare it to regular 8″ “rain shower heads” from competitors, because the rainmax is like standing in a clearing in the Amazon during rainy season. It’s pretty much that amazing.
