I was recently asked what I would do in my master bath if there was not room for both a tub and a shower. Would I consider showering in the tub?  The answer is a resounding NO. And my rationale was confirmed the other night when I stayed in a hotel in Boston where I had to shower in the tub.

I was fortunate to catch the last day of the exhibition, SELLING the DWELLING, The Books that Built America’s Houses, 1775-2000, at the Grolier Club in New York.  Richard Cheek, exhibition curator and author of the accompanying book, is a photographer who records the visual history of America’s architecture as well as a bibliophile.

Waterworks and Shelton, Mindel & Associates have collaborated for more than a decade defining a new modern vocabulary for delivering water. Attention to detail, discreet simplicity and technical advances define the designs from .25 with its graceful quarter radii to Opus with its spare and cerebral elegance and finally Formwork, the last design in the trilogy.

For years I have been extolling the beauty of stone for the bath. It is a natural material that comes in a huge range of sizes and colors with multiple opportunities for different surface textures. It is durable, timeless, refined and only improves with age. Clearly, I love stone. Not only is it the perfect material for the bath, but it is perfect for the entry or foyer of the house.
