Bathrooms have always captivated me in being small rooms with drama and presence. They are often the first thing people renovate  in a home as a “small” renovation. Bathrooms are often the gems of a home next to the Kitchen and increase the resale value exponentially. If you can make a buyer feel like lighting some candles and hopping in for a bubble bath you have checked off a big item on their list.

To me a bathroom is just as much about texture and sparkle as a bedroom is. Playing with the texture of floor tiles and reflection of counter tops as well as ornate qualities in a one of a kind mirror can look astonishing next to snuggly towels and slippers. Treat your bathroom like a spa with scented candles, texture,  the sound of running water and the heat of a nice warm towel. Spare no expense in the luxury of the bathroom and you will surely start your day off on the right foot.

Purple Color Scheme

Purple and Violet colours of femininity, strength and power.

Purple induces sleep and relaxation, lowers body temperature and decreases sensitivity to pain. It symbolizes dignity, royalty and ritual. Its best use is in areas of rest, relaxation and meditation like a spa, yoga studio or bedroom.

Violet can sooth serious mental conditions, over-excitement and over-stimulation restoring peace and calm and inducing deep relaxed sleep. Violet symbolizes humility, creativity, imagination and spiritual enlightenment.  This color is best in areas of quiet thoughtful activity like a craft studio or reading space.

The Plaza Hotel NYC

On my last trip to New York I had the joy of doing a tour through the newly renovated Park Plaza Hotel on 5th avenue and central park right in the heart of royal and historic New York City.  This Iconic hotel has been turned into a combination of hotel suites and residences. The majority of the hotel suites face the newly constructed central tranquility garden and the show stopping residences have multi-million dollar views of glorious central park. The renovation cost was over 400 million dollars with custom carpets, Baccarat chandeliers by philipe stark. From the day it opening on October 1, 1907 it was reported to be on of the greatest hotels in the world costing 12 million dollars to construct in its time.

Each suites decor features Louis XV style handcrafted, carved and inlayed furnishings. The bathrooms have 24 carat gold tiles, sinks, faucets and doorknobs and beautiful marble counters and tiles.

Swarovski Bathroom Faucets

I had butterflies in my stomach when I first saw this new line from Fir Italia. Leave it to the Italians once again to take a classic style and bring it up a notch to “ultra-chic”. Dare I say it, but I would take Swarovski bathroom fixtures over a new pearl necklace any day! www.fir-italia.it
