On a beautiful December day, Robert, Lulu and I travelled up picturesque Route#7 to Williamstown, MA. to see the new Tadao Ando addition to the CLARK MUSEUM. On this trip, we were more interested in the architecture than the art, although we looked in the galleries as well. A little history; in 1955 Sterling Clark engaged the architect Daniel Perry to design his private museum. His request was for a classically styled, domestically scaled and solidly constructed building for the art collection he had carefully assembled over forty years. The original building evokes a Greek temple clad in beautiful Danby marble. It has elegant details and a neoclassical facade.

- Updating your Bath in 2015:
Look to fashion for current trends; textures, printed fabrics and colors.
Use gray as your neutral this year, in warm tones or cool.
Choose stones with more surface activity and texture.
Experiment with graphic wallpaper. It can add color, pattern, and even architecture that is often missing in a bath.
The resurgence of Unlacquered Brass remains strong due to versatility. Polish to keep pristine or leave to patina.
