I was inspired to revisit Boscobel, a lovely early 19th-century house in Garrison, New York, overlooking the Hudson River, by recent article in the New York Times‘ T Magazine. It is a house I know well, not only for its amazing architecture and stunning views but also for its great collection of mostly 19th-century New York federal furniture.

Little round mesh-mounted porcelain tiles–called Penny Tile–are both traditional and modern. They are a familiar form from ’30s-era baths, when little black daisy designs were installed in a bed of white. The look was seen in both residential and commercial installations, often partnered with 3 x 6 white subway tile.

Industrial design has hit a new high for American interiors. We see it in everything from lighting in restaurants and hotels to hardware on furniture and cabinetry to Waterworks faucets for the bath, bar and kitchen. To further this desired style, the industrial-inspired R.W. Atlas collection was designed for us by Roman and Williams and feels very current.

Naturally, the faucet is the most used appliance in your kitchen. In thinking about this important purchase, keep in mind its dual personality; not only should it be compatible with the design of the kitchen, it also must be unequivocally functional.
