I wish my garden looked like this photo. Perhaps with a little more attention and some plant purchases, it will.  I am going to spend the weekend clipping and pruning, planting and relaxing.  I hope you will do the same. I love the start of summer!!

I remember the first time we used dark grout as a design statement at Waterworks. Peter Sallick thought the columns in our 58th Street showroom should look like old New York, referencing the subways as an example. We loved the look; it emphasized the grid and gave the space dimension. It made the columns, which could easily have been a disaster, more integrated in to our design process as well as a focal part of the architecture.

Last week I featured a very complex white bath installed in the Waterworks Washington, DC  showroom.. By comparison, this deceptively simple white bath is an exercise in restraint with its’ own level of architectural detail. It has been in my file for a long time and, regrettably, I do not know the name of the designer

Barbara Westbrook, author of the new book, GRACIOUS ROOMS, loves bathrooms and treats them thoughtfully with an eye on proportions, decoration, light and views. Architectural details, color (her favorite is the color of bark and weathered wood), and materials all factor in to her thinking as she plans and executes really beautiful baths. Her classic Southern style infused with a European touch create approachable and memorable rooms.
