Brass is Back

Polished Brass is Back
Polished brass plumbing fixtures and hardware are back in a big way.  We have done a lot of research to find the best pieces for a recent project.  Here are our 5 favorites from this kitchen.

#1 Custom towel bar by Wa Hoo.  Believe it or not its very difficult to find towel bars in polished unlacquered brass.  For that reason we ended up having them custom made by wahoodesigns 
They make bistro shelves and some other beautiful products; they did a great job on our towel bars too.

#2 PE Guerin cabinet hardware.  If you don't know this company, you should.  They make beautiful hand crafted hardware. 

#3 Custom hood by Texas Lightsmith.  This custom made hood in zinc and polished brass is by Texas Lightsmith

#4 The pendant light fixture and the wall sconces are by Ann Morris
#5 The faucet is by California Faucets.  We were looking for a simple kitchen faucet with a pull out/down spray in polished unlacquered brass.  There were not a lot of options, but we liked the Davoli from California Faucets. (the image below is not polished brass).

Home For the Holidays: Decorating for the holidays with a great looking bar

Its that time of year again!  I like to start decorating my home soon after Thanksgiving so I can start to get into the holiday spirit.  A great place to star is the bar.

I'm a huge fan of bar carts. They always look pretty and elegant.  Here are a couple of my favorites.

If you don't happen to have a really pretty bar cart, don't worry, a bar on a table or dresser can look great.  Take a simple tray, some drinks glasses and some pretty bottles and voila you have a beautiful bar.

Design Trend: Living Walls

We recently designed a therapy office to include a living wall.  This has become the hot new trend, and I am so excited about creating one.  I'm seeing these living walls everywhere; in the magazines, on the internet, and on the city streets.  I don't think this will be a short-lived fascination.  The benefits of plants both in our interiors and our urban landscapes are undeniable.
