On a magical spring day, I had the good fortune to visit to the newly opened Renwick Gallery in Washington, D.C., to see an exhibition called Wonder. Luckily we arrived early enough on a Sunday morning to avoid the long line, however it is worth the wait to explore the exhibit and the see the newly restored galleries which are part of the Smithsonian.

There is much inspiration to be found on the newsstands this fall. In the October 2015 issue of Architectural Digest, be sure to flip to the bath that Nate Berkus, the hip and talented young designer, created for his own house. I was immediately attracted to the book-matched stone feature wall.

Occasionally, I come across a vintage bath that is so compelling I like to post a single image. In this bath for Barbara Hutton, I loved the choice of book matched marble with just the right amount of activity on the surface, the contrasting color scheme, the classical ornamentation on the soffit over the tub and the brass tub fittings. Great design choices never go out of style.
