Thanksgiving has always been a time to give thanks, but this year is different — many of us will miss celebrating the holiday with annual traditions. I believe there is the potential for this year to be even more special. We will probably have a smaller meal with less people, but we may take the opportunity to devise new ways to connect which will make it truly memorable. Just being present with each other is something to be cherished, whether it’s in-person or via a ZOOM call.
Speaking of thankfulness, I do want to express our appreciation for those who voted for us for Best of Northshore Home! We’re honored to be named 2020’s Best of Bath Fixtures & Fittings in both the Editors’ Choice and Readers’ Choice categories, as well as Best of Kitchen Fixtures & Fittings by Readers’ Choice. We are proud that we received these prestigious designations and are immensely grateful for all of our valued customers.
Finally, I’m excited to introduce our November guest blogger David Boronkay, Principal of Slocum Hall Design Group. David’s passion began at a young age when his mother would drive him around his hometown to survey the progress of new homes being built. His passion followed him into adulthood and he loves the process of working with clients to realize their dreams. For him, a home is a person’s most personal possession, and being trusted with the task of creating a unique space that speaks to their aesthetic and functional requirements is incredibly rewarding. We are happy to share his favorite showroom picks with you.
Wishing you a happy and warm November!
TOTO MH CONNECT+ WALL MOUNTED TOILET AND WASHLET IN COTTON WHITE
I am a huge fan of wall-hung toilets in general, both from aesthetic and cleanability perspectives. In-keeping with my affinity for cleanliness, the Toto Washlet seat is one of the best investments anyone can make for their bathroom. I have had one for years, and highly recommend them to anyone willing to spend the extra money. As my Mom used to say, “Cleanliness is next to godliness” – and why shouldn’t that apply to your bum too?
DORNBRACHT BALANCE MODULES BIG RAIN PANEL IN POLISHED STAINLESS STEEL
I love the clean lines of this ceiling-mounted rain panel. Not only is it attractive in its simplicity, but it feels great to stand under it and enjoy the sensation of a warm deluge of water.
LACAVA AQUASEI WALL MOUNT VANITY WITH AQUAQUATTRO LAVATORY VANITY TOP AND MEDICINE CABINET IN NATURAL WALNUT
The warmth of natural wood tones in a bathroom can help elevate a space from ordinary to extraordinary. Once again, I always gravitate towards wall-mounted objects in bathrooms for ease of cleaning, but it also can help a tight space feel more generously proportioned.
STONE FOREST BORDEAUX VANITY TOP IN CARRERA MARBLE WITH PALMER LEG SYSTEM IN POLISHED NICKEL
The elegance and simplicity of this marble console sink works beautifully in a transitional bathroom space. The ability to pair it with different legs and faucets offers customization and can make the piece feel more traditional or more modern.
BAIN ULTRA EVANESCENCE OVAL THERMOMASSEUR FREE STANDING TUB
Free-standing soaking tubs have been on-trend for several years now, and can help elevate the aesthetic of a bathroom. This Bain Ultra tub takes things to the next level with the addition of heated air jets – making it the perfect compromise for those who want the comfort of a jetted tub, while preferring the look of a free-standing soaker.
