Tag Archives: Inspiration

Every now and then I find a bath that resonates with me.  The pink bath in this image is one of those “vintage” images that is all too familiar to those of us of a certain age. In fact, when we founded Waterworks 40 years ago, there were countless baths that looked just like this and many were far worse.

In mid-March I was in London visiting our showroom, our Waterworks team and clients (and also hoping for warmer weather that simply did not happen). However, the sun did eventually shine and I was out and about looking for inspiration. It’s interesting to note what catches your eye in the moment, and how that changes once you’ve returned home. When I reviewed my photos, it is clear that I was attracted to color in London — in the shops, in the Hayward Gallery and on the street. Bright and happy reds, pinks, greens and blues seem to dominate the spring palette, from the skirts and vests on display at local shops to the flora and fauna on the street.

Fall is a great time for the release of new books, and this has been a banner year. Here are three that have landed on my desk recently, with more to come later.

While Robert and I would rather have been at the beach, we decided to take an excursion to Hudson, New York, on a rainy Sunday. The town is always a place for inspiration. There are so many interesting objects (and some awful ones as well) that it is like going on a scavenger hunt. While I was not looking for anything in particular, it was fun to simply identify things I liked.
