A Note From Jason
Happy New Year, everyone!
It’s hard to believe that 2018 is indeed here already. As our team looks back fondly on what was a nonstop, milestone year for Designer Bath and Salem Plumbing Supply, we are filled with gratitude.
2017 brought the debut of our Watertown showroom with a Grand Opening party as well as a fun and festive Community Open House. We look forward to continuing to share this dynamic space and all it has to offer with you. During the past year, we had the privilege of winning several accolades, including ‘Best of the North Shore’ and ‘Best of’ Boston Home honors. Thank you to everyone for your continued support of our business; it means more than we can say.
Our monthly ‘Showroom Favorites’ series keeps on rolling, and I’m excited to introduce our very first guest blogger of 2018, the talented Jayme Kennerknecht. Jayme is the principal of Kennerknecht Design Group, a full-service interior design firm located in Beverly, not too far from our showroom. One of the winners of New England Home‘s 2016 ‘5 Under 40’ Awards, her beautiful spaces are always innovative and comfortable. Browse Jayme’s five bath and kitchen picks below.
Cheers to a wonderful 2018!
NATIVE TRAILS REDONDO GRANDE BAR SINK
I am immediately drawn to this fixture. It’s something that I’ve specified on past projects to add interest and texture to spaces that otherwise may get overlooked, like a wet bar or a butler’s pantry. I love that the hammered copper adds a bit of shimmer and appreciate that it’s an artisan-crafted piece; there’s a great added benefit of using products that are individually unique.
ROHL MICHAEL BERMAN GRACELINE U-SPOUT LAVATORY FAUCET
This U-shaped spout is an updated classic and a bit more elevated than some other fixtures of its kind on the market. I also particularly love the more masculine, industrial details featured on the tip of the spout and levers.
PALMER SINK LEGS STUDIO CONSOLE
I’ve specified Palmer sink bases numerous times and was thrilled to highlight this product. These particular bases offer a lot of versatility. They’re great for powder rooms where you don’t need a ton of storage – it feels more interesting and lends itself to a more spacious look without having a heavy cabinetry appearance.
FURNITURE GUILD TURINO WALL-MOUNTED VANITY
This was a new product line for me to be introduced to, and I was excited to learn more about the fixtures and finishes they offer. A wall-mounted vanity is always a bit more unexpected. It’s also a great option for a kid’s bathroom, as it allows for a foot stool to be tucked underneath and concealed out of the way.
ATLAS HOMEWARES CAMPAIGN BAR PULL
We know brass is in and it’s probably not going away anytime soon. It’s a handsome pull and the exposed screw detail is a nice embellishment. This striking accessory can be universally-used on any millwork, vanity or storage piece.
