Often the lowest priority in interior design, guest baths create opportunities for outside of the box design concepts. Here are some that I would love to encounter as a guest. There is nothing greater than discovering an amazing guest bath that awaits you. It is the gift that nobody expects.
This one is my favorite. If I were a guest in this home I might never leave…. by the look of the window, it is safe to assume that the rest of the house is at least as cool as this bathroom. The piece of furniture converted into a basin is a classic beauty, and the mirror- with that dog painting- so beautiful that it could be a focal point in any room. Makes me want to see the rest of the house.
Calling all decorators or designers with ski lodges, mountain homes, or the desire to achieve that Ralph Lauren feel: search no further, your resource is Heritage Game Mounts.
You are sure to be inspired by the elegant pinterest boards of Rita Schimpff, a talented Texan who sells antler decor and also has a blog dedicated to antler decor: http://www.HeritageGameMounts.com. She is not only super talented, but inspirational and lovely to work with. Below are some of her pins.
I love how British and classic the antlers look above and below.
There are certain fashion designers who have such style that you just KNOW interiors by their hand will be glorious. These three fashion icons did high-end hotel suites so well that the guests will never want to leave.
Dior Suite for St. Regis, New York City
Diane Von Furstenberg for Claridges, London
Armani for Armani Hotel, Dubai
The designers were certainly true to their trademark style in the design of these suites, as featured in Departures Magazine.
I would go straight for the Dior Suite! Which Fashion Designer Hotel Suite would you stay in?
I discovered an interesting natural product to maintain kitchen freshness by increasing the longevity of produce in the refrigerator. Not only does this cube absorb ethylene gas in the refrigerator, it can also be used to absorb smells in other small spaces around the house. What an interesting product:
What is it?
This neat little black cube efficiently purifies and refreshes the air in smaller spaces as it reduces odours. Try it in places such as drawers, closets, the car or your refrigerator.
Moreover, it can be used to keep food fresh by absorbing ethylene gas – try placing it in your fruit bowl and it will stay fresher for longer.
6 x 6 x 6 cm
Tested and documented effect by Danish Technological Institute.
What is it made of?
Kuro Cube is made from powdered and compressed White Charcoal.
This is the highest grade of charcoal available with an extremely high carbon content.
The raw material is Korean oak and the powdered White Charcoal is organically produced and handcrafted in Korea.
How to use?
Remove the plastic cover and place your Kuro Cube straight into your fridge or in any small space you want to deodorize.
Occasionally exposing your Kuro Cube to sunlight allows it to dry out thoroughly and regain its ability to absorb.
Do not use a microwave oven for this purpose.
How long does it last?
Kuro Cube remains active for one year.
How to recycle?
A used Kuro Cube is an excellent fertilizer. Just crush it and mix with potting soil, in order to nourish it and regulate its PH levels.
