Erin Gates’ Showroom Favorites – September 2018
A Note From Jason
As we cling to the last few days of sweet summertime, it’s hard to believe that a new season is just around the corner. Over here at Designer Bath, we bid adieu to August with a fun event and will welcome September with one as well.
Last month, we enjoyed a hands-on educational workshop at our Watertown showroom with our friends at Infinity Drain. We lunched, and then we learned about the brand’s linear and trench drainage systems. Thanks to our colleagues who attended.
To say ‘hello’ to autumn, we’re doing one of our favorite things – hosting a panel discussion! You’re invited to join us and our partners, The Boston Globe Magazine and luxury faucet manufacturer, THG, at 604 Pleasant Street in Watertown on Tuesday, September 25th, from 5:30 – 8 PM, for ‘Refresh & Renew: Simple Ways to Update Your Home.’
Led by moderator, Veronica Chao, Editor of The Boston Globe Magazine, the chat will feature local design experts: Erin Gates, Principal of Erin Gates Design; Barbara Elza Hirsch, Principal of Elza B. Design, Inc.; and Mindy Sevinor, our very own Showroom Brand Manager, at Designer Bath. Our trio of panelists will share tips on updating your home with minor décor changes. Guests will enjoy refreshments & hors d’oeuvres. This is a free and 21+ event, and space is limited. Reserve your spot now!
And on that note, it’s my pleasure to introduce our guest blogger for this month… drum roll, please… Erin Gates! We had a blast with the designer, blogger and best-selling author as she strolled through our Watertown showroom to select her favorite pieces. Keep scrolling to see the bath and kitchen goodies that made Erin’s final list.
Happy September and we hope to see you at our event.
CROSSWATER LONDON BALTHAZAR TUB
This sleek Crosswater tub (with the swoon-worthy polished stainless steel exterior!) is the perfect combination of vintage with a modern twist. The piece just has a certain sparkle that would make it an ideal fit for a farmhouse bathroom but it could work equally well in a modern dwelling. It’s also a soaking tub that looks as though it could be over three times the price.
SIGMA SERIES KITCHEN FAUCET & SPRAY
This faucet has a gorgeous, unique blend of contemporary and transitional styles. The side spray has a great weight to it when you hold it in your hand – it feels very luxe. I also like the curve of the faucet.
THE FURNITURE GUILD WINSTON VANITY
I recently put this vanity in a home in New York for one of my clients because I love how it looks like an actual piece of furniture. It’s customizable so you can tailor it to work with any décor taste; my favorite finish is the French Walnut with Burnished Brass.
CROSSWATER LONDON THERMOSTATIC EXPOSED SHOWER FAUCET
This faucet has a very clean, yet beautiful, design that could translate well in various settings and aesthetics. I love the large shower head and handles.
LISA JARVIS ROBIN TOGGLE PULL
The toggle pull is just calling out for a chic vanity in a master bath or powder room to accompany it. If you are going for a high-end, upscale bathroom design, I can’t recommend this pretty pull enough.
