Design hotel luxe meets spa styling? Organic meets slick? Jung from Guam installed high-end hardware and appliances and a pebbled shower floor in his bathroom and sent us the pics. 'I have 24 by 24 tiles that covers the floor throughout the house. I'd just recently installed the TOTO shower head, Laboratory and added complete natural river rocks on the floor. Including Kohler sink, and TOTO toilet. I hope you enjoy the pictures.'
This image of Altman's new Nuva faucet surprised us a bit: It's one of the few modern faucets we've seen in an oil-rubbed bronze finish. Sleek and modern faucets have always been most popular in a shiny chrome or brushed finish - and oil-rubbed bronze is usually reserved for the more traditional styles.... Even on the Altman's website it is difficult to find an example or description of the Nuva faucet pictured. We imagine this finish is an option that is just not purchased very often.

Inspirational posters usually make us shudder, so when we first ran across this series from University College Falmouth in the UK we got pretty excited. The website copy explains: 'Advice to sink in slowly is a series of posters designed by recent and established graduates of University College Falmouth for the purpose of passing on advice and inspiration to first year students. A poster is given as a welcoming gift to every first year student when they enroll.' We only wish that we'd gone to a college this cool. Advice to Sink in Slowly posters are available for £5.00 each from their webstore, and shipping from the UK to the US is also just £5.00.
It's the Curse of the Bambino! We may not be that into the Red Sox, but we're diehard Celtics fans. Even as a fan, this Celtics-inspired recliner will never be OK in our den, no matter how much we reeeeally want KG to get a ring. One of our fellow Celtics fans wants to kit out his 'Man room' in full-on green and white, and he asked us for some tips. The tricky part? His 'Man room' isn't technically 'His'-it's the den that he shares with his wife. We've seen the furniture, the bar stools, the billiards accessories. After putting out our feelers to both married couples and interior decorators, the general consensus is to limit your fan-dom to a sweatshirt and MAYBE a throw blanket if you want to keep your marital status in tact. Maybe there's a way to decorate and still proclaim your team loyalty. Anyone have any tips or photos of chic sporty rooms?
Here's a small break from all the Smallest Coolest entries and house tours we've been posting...something a little left of the ordinary. Artist Kazmierz Szmauz's three bookshelf designs might not be for everyone, but they're likely to induce a smile from just about everyone.... The Bookman measures 70 inches high by 45 inches wide and is made from Mahogany, although other woods can be used. Shelves are best adapted to books beneath 8 inches in height. Bookman 1 can be ordered and collected from our shop or shipped at cost to anywhere in the world. Please allow a few weeks as each Bookman is individually built on demand.
It's all about the bedroom this month and in honor of that I've rounded up some of our favorite bedroom makeovers. All are fresh with ideas for the coming spring months ahead! Read on for the full list.... 1.
Q: We love our new living room and the wallpaper from Anthropologie that we put up. What color should we paint the wall that is next to the wallpaper ?. Are the curtains too much visual competition with the wallpaper? What paint color and curtain ideas do people have? What should we do for coffee tables? The wallpaper and the couch must stay. The rest of the room is negotiable.... Thanks for any advice! We simply haven't been able to figure out the right wall color/curtain combination! -Sent by Jenn. Editor: Congratulations on installing your fantastic wallpaper! Readers, how would you dream-decorate the rest of Jenn's living room? Have a question for our community? Send us yours with a photo or two attached.
The pairing of black and white is so crisp and clean, it's no wonder it works well in the bathroom. Where else is that clean feeling more essential? See some of our favorites after the jump.... It was this renovation by Anna at Door Sixteen that originally put the idea into our heads, then it seemed like we were seeing black and white bathrooms everywhere, and in all sorts of styles. The pairing really is so classic and versatile, that it works with all sorts of decorating schemes. We like the use of natural elements and a neutral paint color to keep the room from feeling too stark with all the graphic black and white elements. Woah, we'd love to get a house tour from whatever fat cat bathes here. Is that a candelabra? A giant plasma? We like to think this is the tiny studio apartment of someone who just really likes to bathe.
Back in November, Tiffany wrote in asking AT for advice regarding wallpaper and molding in the bedroom. She sought your advice again for her dining room. Now, she writes to share images of what she's done and how appreciative she was for all of your suggestions! Hello AT,. Wanted to send an update of the dining room! I was in Egypt when everyone wrote back with their WONDERFUL ideas so only just read them. We were in Chicago for the holidays and got to use the dining room for dinner so I took some photos to update you all. I got the Merimekko wall hanging and put it in there, the rug is antique Persian and I have an antique crystal chandelier I got in Belgium that needs to be re-wired as it's European right now. The table is hand-me-down as are the chairs, or brought in from other rooms. I'm saving up for the Martine chairs from Restoration Hdw. Decided not to do the 'Woods' paper as it is so expensive! Thinking about this one... I'll send final pics when we finish this summer, as well as the bedroom.
