It is my never ending challenge to find perfect seating for the bath.  The chairs are often over scaled and the stools too small and precious.  You can imagine my surprise when I visited the elegant showroom of George Cameron Nash in Dallas this October and found not one, but five candidates for the “perfect perch”.  George’s showroom is visually pleasing on every level and easy to navigate.  The furniture and fabrics are displayed by collection and George always adds his own personal touch to make each piece appealing.  George either adds a pop of color (Chinese red is his personal favorite) in the form of decorative pillows, or upholsters in well coordinated collections of patterns.

After a couple of weeks of inspiration and party posts, we are back to talking about the bath!

Those of you, who know me, know I have a tile fetish (probably easier to manage than one for shoes).   I love the natural ingredients from which tile is made; earth-dug clays, silica, sand and water.  I also love the fact that clay can be transformed by the human hand into an object of enduring beauty.  It can be squeezed and molded into any shape and applied to many surfaces.  And tile grids provide the opportunity to configure a square or rectangle into impressive wall patterns.

I was inspired to write this post after seeing Betty Lou Phillips’ new book, French Impressions. She loves words and monograms and has embroidered them on towels, embedded them in mosaic floors and painted them on her grandchildren’s lockers.
