bathtastic! from lori graham

This bath­room, from Wash­ing­ton DC designer Lori Gra­ham is so inspi­ra­tional, don't you think? Sim­ple, ele­gant, and sooth­ing with an inter­est­ing bal­ance of the mas­cu­line bath van­ity and that volup­tuous bathtub!

Over­all, the light­ing tips the bath­room toward the fem­i­nine, but I think tweak­ing a few ele­ments (paint color, chair) would encour­age a man to com­fort­ably share it. It really is so lovely, it would be a shame to use it all alone!

architectural digest home show 2011: bornholm kitchen

It was my very great plea­sure to visit Susan Serra (@SusanSerraCKD), Pres­i­dent of Born­holm Kitchen, at what was essen­tially the débu­tante party of her new line. Show­cased for the first time at the AD Home­Show, Born­holm Kitchen's story is multi-faceted. Inspired by clas­sic Scan­di­na­vian style, this line of cab­i­netry and van­i­ties is at once smooth and mod­ern, warm and ele­gant. With chameleon-like ease, these pieces blend into their sur­round­ings, from Euro­pean coun­try to Shaker sim­plic­ity, while still mak­ing a design statement.

The Born­holm line is the per­fect choice for a fitted-furniture kitchen. A depar­ture from the look of tra­di­tional Amer­i­can kitchen cab­i­netry, Born­holm can be con­fig­ured to offer all the stor­age you need.

Another ter­rific fea­ture of Born­holm Kitchen is their sus­tain­abil­ity story. U.S. made, the cab­i­net bod­ies use soy-based resins instead of urea formalde­hyde. The durable oil fin­ish is 100% VOC-FREE and con­tains no toxic chem­i­cals. Addi­tion­ally, the Born­holm Kitchen fac­tory has been awarded the ESP (Envi­ron­men­tal Stew­ard­ship Pro­gram) cer­ti­fi­ca­tion by the Kitchen Cab­i­netry Man­u­fac­tur­ers Asso­ci­a­tion (KCMA). Beau­ti­ful for you, beau­ti­ful for the environment.

bathtastic! from marsh & clark

This amaz­ing pow­der room by Marsh and Clark proves the adage good things come in small pack­ages. At only 9' x 3', the design­ers max­i­mized func­tion­al­ity while cre­at­ing a beau­ti­ful com­bi­na­tion of tra­di­tional and con­tem­po­rary mate­ri­als. No won­der it won the first Uncharted Waters Design Com­pe­ti­tion from Cifial.

Feast your eyes:
