This month, we’re celebrating the kitchen at Waterworks.  This gives me another opportunity to talk about faucets for the kitchen, bar, laundry, potting shed and mud room, as I have done in the past. There are so many options available that it is difficult to make the right choice from the many faucets in the market.

The countertop is the pivotal material in the kitchen. It is the most frequently observed item in the kitchen and should provide inspiration with every glance. Choose wisely.

It is not often that one gets to see a contemporary indoor pool.  The first one that comes to mind is Hearst Castle, that extraordinary extravaganza of surfaces and space that make you feel like you are in a fairy tale. The next, for me, is the remarkable pool pictured here, in which every detail has been magically conceived and the experience of being in the space is totally memorable. It bears a resemblance to the Hearst pool, for sure.

Classical architecture at its best. An axial procession through a hall lined with black and white prints leads to a perfectly placed window with a view of the landscape beyond. The sculptural and symmetrical design of the tub, with its burnished exterior and simple footed base, fills the architectural need for balance and proportion.
