By Designer Bath




We like make-overs just as much as our customers do! Lately, we have been displaying some new items in our showroom to change the scenery a little bit. We have always had a great selection of wall sconces for the bath on display, but did you know that we also can order pendant lights for over your kitchen islands? And dramatic chandeliers for your bathrooms and living spaces?

Who says a bathroom can’t get decked out for the holidays? We’re not talking traditional reds and greens as much as bits of designer bling like we recently saw at the Glen Magna Farms Designers Holiday Show House in Danvers. Held December 1st – 15th, this show was a fundraiser for the Danvers Historical Society in its continued efforts to renovate and preserve this historic property....

Radiant Orchid in the Bath

December 09, 2013

A classic gray and white bath is the perfect counter point to an infusion of the warm and vibrant Pantone color of the year, Radiant Orchid. Layering in colors like deep amethyst and soft pink – close to orchid on the color wheel – is a great way to add depth to a design that features this stylish hue.
“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating...

Big Gift Idea #1
Trying to come up with an out-of-the-box holiday gift idea for that special someone? Significant others can be the most difficult to buy for, especially when there is a house-to-do-list vying for attention both during and after the holidays.

5 Reasons to Love Loo ...

November 18, 2013

 

By Designer Bath


1. Loo is always there for you. 

2. Loo respects your privacy. 

3. Loo does not judge.

4. Loo inspires a feeling of lightness and well-being.

5. What happens in the Loo, stays in the Loo.
