A Note From Jason
Happy August, everyone!
As Ella Fitzgerald famously penned – “Summertime and the living is easy.” We were living easy and well at last month’s event with New England Home. Thank you to everyone who joined us for our ‘Living Well: How to Hit Your Personal Stride with Home Design, Style & Wellness’ panel discussion. Enjoy some photos from the evening here.
Along with endless days and nights, August is a time for anniversaries and AMAZING deals. Not only does this month mark our 73rd year in business, we’re also celebrating the one-year anniversary of our Watertown showroom. And now for those ‘amazing deals’…
We’re offering TAX-FREE SAVINGS now through August, 11th. Yep, you heard that right. Shop both of our showrooms through Saturday, August 11th, and receive a discount of 6.25% equal to the sales tax! If the state holds an official tax-free weekend, you’ll save the sales tax of 6.25% with a total savings of 12.5% on your order. We’re taking pre-orders now and will process your order on August 11th.
Because rules are rules – some disclaimers to be aware of: *Offer applies to new orders only and cannot be combined with any other offers. Cannot be used on previous purchases. State of MA sales tax holiday rules and regulations apply.
It’s my pleasure to introduce our August guest blogger, Molly Pidgeon, Principal of House of Dietrich, a residential and commercial design, construction and project management company. Molly’s love of design was cultivated from traveling and her fondness for architecture and nature. Take a peek at her bath and kitchen favorites below.
DORNBRACHT AIR SWITCH
I’ve sometimes found that switching devices can be cumbersome, especially when building code requires that you put in supplemental devices that you don’t actually use. I love the simplicity of having an air switch on the counter as opposed to under the sink or on the black splash. What a great way to simplify the form and function of a kitchen. Well done, Dornbracht!
NEELNOX MOSAICS Y SHELF SERIES
The chrome finish of the Y Shelf Series pieces are sexy, and the floating shelf option itself is interesting. I haven’t really seen anyone translate the floating shelf into bathrooms yet. I like the contemporary lines of a floater because they provide a fresh, smart look while still being minimalist and clean. Don’t be confused by the backsplash on this version – there are multiple color and style options available.
HUDSON VALLEY BAIRD 4-LIGHT BATH SCONCE
As someone who is admittedly always drawn to the ‘glam girl’ vibe, I can’t get enough of the updated Hollywood style of this piece. The four-bulb sconce is reminiscent of vintage marquee signs or panel lights on a dressing room mirror. Trés chic and classic.
THG PARIS FAUBOURG FAUCET
I’m such a fan of the black and white accents against the chrome finish on this THG fixture. This faucet has a luxe, designer quality to it. I feel like it could easily say: ‘Chanel’ – swoon. I can envision this in a lot of different settings; a powder room, a nice master bath, it has endless versatility.
PERRIN & ROWE WOODEN TOILET SEAT
This one is all about nostalgia for me. I grew up in a house with wooden toilet seats and I love them. The rich, mahogany tone of this Perrin and Rowe option is so warm and inviting. As a designer, I’m always drawn to natural tones because they add such character to a space.
