Lucky me, last year I won a design contest where I won Legrand wallplates, outlets and switches. I was excited to receive the adorne product however they basically sat on my husband’s workbench for a year collecting dust. Then a lightbulb went off (no pun intended), these beauties can be used in our extensive masterbath and kids bath renovation. Yay! Legrand happily sent me whatever I needed to complete my installation. Thank you so much Legrand!

Being a lover of cutting edge details, the adorne’s eyecatching Titanium switch plate and burnished pewter finish takes the bathroom to another level. It adds polish, style and sophistication.

There are  extensive types of finishes and customizable options. The functionality is revolutionary. Combining ingenuity with convenience, the options available allow you to tap, touch, switch or wave. My switches and dimmers are the softap. You can set the light level to whatever you want with a slight tap! I am completely enamored with the adorne product. Here is the whole look of my earthy bath with a high tech product

1986 Bathroom Renovation goes 2015 Earthy Modern

Rugged stone, warm wood and variegated colors. This is the feeling I wanted for my renovated masterbath. We lived with this 1986 bathroom for way too long and it was time for the sledgehammer! It's a testament to American Standard that the toilet lasted a long time! Their products are timeless. A special thanks goes to DXV  of American Standard for all the gorgeous fixtures!



Bye Bye 1986 Bathroom!!


Mind you, my master is tiny; so the material choices were very important. To feel connection to the earth, I went back to the basics giving my masterbath design a more organic feel with a modern edge.

Starting off subtly, the slate stone vanity wall has uneven texture resulting in a truly natural look and feeling.  Pairing the stone with the crisp lines of the DXV Square POP vessel adds a contemporary edge.

Stainless steel accents on the custom Lacava walnut vanity with industrial lighting from Renovation Hardware adds a modern dimension to the space too.

The flow of water was an important factor in this small space. The beautiful flowing waterfall from DXV Keefe’s vessel faucet connects me back to a lake with the sounds of water rippling over pebbles.
