Musings by Mindy

Fall 2020

Mindy Sevinor

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It would be an understatement to say that a lot has changed since my last blog in March. While this year has brought many new obstacles and challenges, I think many of us have built stronger relationships during this pandemic — with our friends, our family, with nature — and most importantly for this blog post: with our homes. 

Our homes have become more than just the places where we dwell. They’ve become places where we can spend more quality time building memories with our families. They’ve become virtual classrooms and jungle gyms for our kids. They’ve become our home offices, our quiet sanctuaries, our much needed refuges. 

Here at Designer Bath, our clients are fostering a newfound gratitude for where they live. Their homes are becoming more of a priority and getting the attention they deserve: ranging from full renos to finding that perfect light fixture or faucet to finally creating the dream bathroom or kitchen they have always wanted. Homeowners are focused on making their living space a place that’s more functional and enjoyable for their whole family. We are truly proud to have the opportunity to help people during a time when they need it the most. 

Rolling into fall, we’re looking forward to expanding our showroom offerings. This includes the addition of one of the most-anticipated kitchen lines (and one of my personal favorites): Waterstone Faucets. Their wheel pulldown faucets are super unique and different — there really isn’t anything else like it.

I am so happy I can offer this fall edition of Musings by Mindy to bring some positivity and inspiration into your home. So every time you wake up and turn on your new faucet, you have a greater sense of appreciation for your home. Stay safe — we’re all in this together. 

All my best,

Mindy Sevinor

New In The Showroom


Waterstone is reinventing the wheel with their latest pulldown faucet. This innovative design is an anomaly — it is sure to stop your guests in their tracks.

Inspired by the wheel of a ship, the pre-rinse spray arm is spring-loaded and can reach all areas of the sink. Versatile, elegant, and functional, the faucet is available in an amazing 32 finishes. This piece will be the talk of the kitchen.


California Faucets does it again! Their arched rain showerhead creates a unique, funnel effect adding a touch of luxury to the bathroom. There is nothing else like this on the market. Other thin showerheads can be a bit basic — this one is structural and sleek. Better yet, it’s offered in 28 different finishes.



I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — specialty finishes are what’s hot. Mixed or matte black, they add elegance and personality to a space. This is especially true when it comes to vanity cabinetry. By utilizing one of the many shades of brass, matte black, or a combination of the two, a whole new level of character and personalization is added to the décor. We have now seen this shift carry over into other categories, such as vanities. Not only are we seeing mixed finishes, but now we are also seeing the integration of mixed materials as well.

For instance, the Lacava wall-mounted vanity (left image) shows how finishes can absolutely pop when paired with a bright, white base. Furniture Guild is a great example of mixing metals with wood (right image). While simple in design, it allows room for the finishes to shine. The literal definition of simple but powerful.
