Samuel Heath Releases Unlacquered Brass

Samuel Heath, British Manufacturer of meltingly beautiful luxury fixtures and accessories, has announced that it will be producing two lines in timeless and on point unlacquered brass. Both collections are available with metal or crystal handles. LOVE!!

What is driving this design trend is the durability and easy care of unlacquered brass. YES!! It is going to tarnish. It is selected BECAUSE it will tarnish. BUT…it can be polished if desired. The homeowners who select this finish are drawn to the warm living finish and can’t wait for the oxidation to occur which softens the shine of new brass. For many of our clients, this is a new finish which they haven’t lived with before and it is being embraced by our most style conscious homeowners and designers. We also love it on modern styled fixtures as well. Check out our Pinterest Board on this design subject…Click HERE

Pete Evens likes to say he can do “CUSTOM ANYTHING”

This used to be a dresser and now it's a really unique vanity. You'll see close ups of the sinks and faucets further down the page.

This used to be a dresser and now it’s a really unique vanity. You’ll see close ups of the sinks and faucets further down the page.

These are pics of a fun project by Pete Evens of Anubis Construction. The clients weren’t afraid to take some chances using an old dresser and converting it into a new vanity. With a few alterations by Pete Evens, it’s a unique base to define the mood of the bathroom.

These sinks were made in Pennsylvania by JSG Oceana. They are made using a similar process as much of the oven safe and thermo-resistant (it can take extremes of hot and cold without breaking) glassware that comes out of this region. They are available in lots of colors and sizes. They also make drop in sinks and undermounts which can be fun when installed with LED light below them.

And I’m sure you wanna see what this looks like with the water on, right…???

Come on...this is a TOTALLY fun bathroom, right?!! It would be such a pleasure to use these faucets daily with the water cascading over your hands

We LOVE wall hung toilets for SO MANY reasons. They are so easy to clean compared to a floor mount toilet. One can sweep or mop right under them instead of around all of the grooves of a regular floor mounted toilet. The carrier on which they are mounted provides several height options for installation so tall homeowners can have a taller finished bowl height and shorter homeowners can select the shorter height. (To be clear: once installed, they are not adjustable.)

There's the drain!! It is installed with the floor tile so that it nearly disappears

The drain is by Quick Drain USA. Look closer…there is NO THRESHOLD on this shower. You can walk or roll a wheelchair or walker right in. It’s so elegant and easier to clean since there are fewer corners to get icky.
