Happy August, everyone! The month of August is similar to that feeling of approaching the top of a ferris wheel. This metaphor applies to all of us at Designer Bath in relation to the upcoming opening of our Watertown showroom. The excitement and adrenaline have been building and we’ve almost reached the peak, the culmination of hard work and planning – we truly cannot wait to soon share this new space with you.
Our summer has been busy and non-stop with recent highlights including: our 6th annual Designers SHINE Awards and our sponsorship of the Paddle for Plummer and North Shore Cancer WALK charity events.
Our SHINE Awards, which wrapped up last month, gave us a chance to honor and celebrate the New England design industry and our loyal clients. We were absolutely blown away by the outstanding entries that we received. Congratulations to Mary Michael O’Hare of MMO Designs for winning this year’s ‘Overall Excellence in Design’ Award. Photos of Mary’s project and the five other winning spaces can be viewed in the gallery on our website.
June and July welcomed opportunities to give back to our community with the North Shore Cancer WALK and Paddle for Plummer philanthropic initiatives. The North Shore Cancer WALK is a 10K stroll through Salem, to raise money for cancer research and awareness, while Paddle for Plummer, an all-day paddle boarding event, benefits the Plummer Youth Promise, an organization that builds a sense of family for youth in need.
With a new month comes another installment of our ‘Showroom Favorites’ blog series, and yet again, we are joined by a talented industry colleague. August’s guests, Peter and Desi Souhleris from A&E’s ‘Flipping Boston’, own the property buying and selling company, CityLight Homes, and star in Build.Design.Live’s new show, ‘Bragging Rights.’ Peter and Desi are longtime friends of the Designer Bath family and we love collaborating on projects together. Browse their five bath picks below.
Here’s hoping that August’s ferris wheel ride is smooth and allows you to savor every moment of this season.
Stay in touch and come visit us in Watertown later this summer!
