Hello all, and happy June! It’s time to put away those snow boots and parkas and break out the sandals and pool floats. As a prelude to BBQs and beach days, this month is a time to honor dear old Dad on Father’s Day.
Speaking of fathers, I’d like to say a huge ‘congrats’ to my own, Ralph Sevinor, who was included among the 2017 winners for Design New England’s prestigious ‘Mentors in Design’ (MIDDIES) Awards. Celebrating local design professionals in interior design, architecture and construction, the MIDDIES recognize those who share their expertise and passion with future generations. Ralph will be presented with his award at Design New England’s annual ceremony and event.
And on the topic of summer activities, did you hear the news? We’re pitching a tent and you’re invited! No, it’s not for a camping trip (though we wouldn’t mind the S’Mores and a bonfire) – it’s for our annual tent sale at our Beverly showroom. From June 17th to 24th, we’ll have our own big top full of discounts of up to 75% on fine fixtures and accessories for the bath and kitchen. We’ll have the entertainment covered as well when Sue Tabb, on-air host at MAGIC 106.7, and the MAGIC street team kick things off on the 17th with music and prizes from 10 AM to 2 PM. And because we just can’t say goodbye to a great deal, when the tent goes down, we’re extending the savings on all items inside our showroom until July 3rd. Join us for major savings and a good time!
When it comes to good times, forging relationships and diving into projects with other designers are among our favorite aspects of this business. So without further ado, I’m thrilled to share two collaborations with you. The first involves interior designer, Erin Gates, of the famed Elements of Style blog, and her office bathroom renovation, for which we provided fixtures and accessories. Take a peek at the stunning final look here. Secondly, we joined forces with delightful and talented designer/blogger, Jessica Klein, of Oh, I Design Studio, to bring you June’s ‘Showroom Favorites.’ We had a blast hosting Jessica at our showroom while she hand-picked kitchen and bath pieces to share with you! Read on to see her ‘must-have’ products.
Wishing everyone a wonderful start to the summer. Stay in touch!
LISA JARVIS ROBIN AND HOMAGE PULLS
There’s nothing I love better than a small but might detail. These brass pulls from Lisa Jarvis are stunning in person and give furniture pieces new life.
FURNITURE GUILD HAYDEN VANITY
This vanity is one that stops you in your tracks! The Cerused Oak finish and white matte Ogee countertop make the perfect pair for a classic look. The finishing touch with a a twist? The ring hardware details!
NEWPORT BRASS KEATON FAUCET
I can’t seem to stay away from the modern matte black fittings (faucets, shower heads, sinks, etc.) in kitchen and bath design. I picture this Newport Brass Keaton Faucet paired with a marble sink, white hexagon tile, and a gorgeous Turkish rug…SOLD!
HUDSON VALLEY BERKLEY WALL SCONCE
Geometric, transitional, aged brass, and with a feminine curved arm support? Need I say more?
WETSTYLE CUBE BATHTUB
Not only is this tub sleek and modern; it’s also eco-friendly with a Thermo-insulating material made from soy and mineral stone. The tub also works beautifully with the WetStyle M Series (in Walnut) – geometric (see a trend here?), Japanese-inspired, minimalist and modular.
