A Note From Jason
Happy February! It may be brutally cold out there, but at least we are getting more sunlight as the days go on. Spring will be here before we know it. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, my home will soon be filled with presents and cake. We’ll be celebrating my son Gunnar’s 6th birthday. Where does the time go?
This month’s blog is a little different in an exciting way. Our guest blogger picked her favorite items by using the virtual tour feature on our website. By doing so, she was able to select from both our Watertown and Beverly showrooms. As we reflect on the ways that we have needed to pivot since the start of the pandemic, we are proud of the new initiatives we’ve implemented to enhance our customer experience and accommodate various shopping approaches, including the rollout of the virtual tour, Zoom appointments, and the online wishlist. Now our clients have the opportunity to view displays and choose items from the comfort of their own home!
Without further ado, we’re happy to introduce our February Showroom Favorites blogger: Jessica Chabot. Jessica has over 20 years in the construction and design industry. A graduate of the Boston Architectural College, Jess started her design career as a kitchen and bath designer and then spent eight years with a custom residential construction company. Currently, she is applying all of her experience and expertise as Senior Designer at Katie Rosenfeld and Company. She works with the team to create and execute high-end interiors. Jess lives in the burbs with her husband and two daughters. When she isn’t using her magic design wand to make people’s dreams come true, she volunteers as the president of the New England IFDA chapter and sits on her town’s Planning Board. We are thrilled to share her favorites with you.
Wishing you all a warm and loving February.
STONE FOREST CALMA MARBLE SOAKING TUB
How can you not be obsessed with Stone Forest’s Calma marble soaking tub? With its stunning veining, the tub presents an “old-world” feel with a modern look. It would pair nicely with almost any style and would be a beautiful focal point in a bathroom.
ROHL ELONGATED HIGH GLOSS MAHOGANY TOILET SEAT
Often an overlooked part of a bathroom, I am thrilled to see wood toilet seats making a comeback. This particular mahogany piece from Rohl adds a level of formality to the space. Apart from a design standpoint, they are also much more comfortable to sit on.
DXV RANDALL WIDESPREAD BATHROOM FAUCET WITH CROSS HANDLES
Everyone knows brass is back. Oftentimes, however, clients can be fearful of living finishes — they shouldn’t be! There is something charming about your faucet having “lived.”
HOUSE OF ROHL SHAWS CLASSIC SHAKER FARMHOUSE APRON FRONT FIRECLAY KITCHEN SINK
The tried and true “farm sink” is a classic. House of Rohl is the industry standard for this style of sink. The Shaws Classic Shaker Farmhouse Fireclay piece is a must-have.
HOUSE OF ROHL PERRIN & ROWE EDWARDIAN ERA OVAL THERMOSTATIC TRIM PLATE WITH VOLUME CONTROL
IN POLISHED CHROME
My love for House of Rohl pieces continues with this Perrin & Rowe Edwardian Era selection. Right now, I’m really into shower trims that have an all-in-one backplate for both the volume control and thermostatic valve. You can’t go wrong with this streamlined look — and may I mention – less to clean!
