We have been completely immersed in color with the relaunch of our favorite handmade ceramic tile line, Architectonics. After years of focusing on many shades of white, we wanted to bring color back into bath and kitchen design. For inspiration we looked at travel photos, fashion, our favorite richly illustrated books, our closets, and an old standby, the color wheel.

I was honored when Phillip James Dodd (an author and expert on classical architecture and interiors) asked me to write a chapter for his new book on the subject of collaboration. He also invited 16 other architects, designers, landscape architects, vendors and artisans to contribute their views as well. It is clear that teamwork and partnership are pivotal to successfully launching any new product, building a house or developing a new way of thinking. At Waterworks, we work in cross-functional teams where the expertise of our partners, from creative design and financial planning to sourcing and purchasing, is critical to the success of a project.

I love to start the New Year with a purge of closets, medicine cabinets, and when I have the energy, accumulated stuff from my cellar. So far, I’ve done the closet and there is a nice pile of clothing for Dress for Success, one of my favorite charities.
