My family and I enjoyed our last trip of the summer at Story Land!
Happy September, everyone!
The summer days are winding down and I can’t believe it’s almost over. With Labor Day fast approaching, it’s the perfect time to squeeze in some final vacation days. My family and I went to Story Land in New Hampshire last week and had a blast. It was a great time – soaking up the fun and sun with the whole family before the kids have to go back to school (yes, it’s that time of year again).
If you have kids of your own, you know how busy this season can be. Whether it’s searching for deals on new clothes or school supplies, it probably feels like you’re racing around trying to get more things done than can fit into the day. Be sure to reserve some shopping time for yourself! Head to our showroom to find that perfect kitchen or bath item you’ve been meaning to buy all summer long.
It’s my pleasure to introduce our guest blogger for this month, David Sharff. David had an early interest in art, history and construction, leading him into the field of architecture. He launched his practice in 1995 with a focus on creating timeless, detail-oriented residential designs and home renovations. Today, his award-winning firm’s designs can be seen enhancing neighborhoods throughout New England. David holds both a BA and an MA in Architecture (1988) from Tulane University, and has instructed design classes at the Boston Architectural Center. He is a registered architect in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). David’s civic involvement includes the Medfield Historic District Commission and past membership of Medfield’s Planning Board. He also designed two houses for Habitat for Humanity. David is a member of the Boston Society of Architects (BSA) and the Builders and Remodelers Association of Greater Boston (BRAGB). We are so happy to share with you his favorite pieces from our showroom.
Wishing you all a happy Labor Day Weekend and a fantastic month!
VICTORIA & ALBERT BARCELONA 2 TUB
I am designing my own new master bathroom and this was the first piece that we chose! It will be the focal point with its clean lines and simple curves. This model is available in two sizes; even the smaller one fits two people.
DORNBRACHT MEM CONTROL AND TRIM
This is my favorite shower control to recommend to clients who want a minimalist aesthetic; the balance of curves and square edges are a simple statement. Of course, this will appear in our new bathroom next to the tub!
LACAVA AQUAGRANDE CONSOLE SINK W/LEGS
If you want a timeless and functional design with a nod to an industrial aesthetic, this is your perfect sink. The simple combination of the white basin with the black legs will look fresh for years to come. Plus, the horizontal rail is the handiest place for your favorite towel!
FRANZ VIEGENER LAVATORY FAUCET
I have paired this faucet in black chrome as an ideal complement to the console sink; it shares the same minimalist and industrial aesthetic. The contemporary form of the cross-handles in black matte are an unexpected detail.
BLANCO UNDERMOUNT KITCHEN SINK WITH DORNBRACHT TARA PULL DOWN FAUCET
This combination is my go-to recommendation for a kitchen sink and faucet. The sink is made of a granite composite material that is durable and stain-resistant, which is a practical change from stainless or fire clay, and is offered in several colors to suit your countertop selection. The faucet’s goose-neck design is elegant and its pull down spray is conveniently hidden and will look timeless in your kitchen.
