There is an umbrella of sadness over this holiday season. However, this shining light on top of the Rockefeller Christmas tree is a symbol of brighter days to come. With its 25,000 Swarovski crystals and 1 million facets, a lovely combination of art and science spreads its light over midtown wishing all a Happy Holiday.

This all white and very straightforward bath is simple and totally functional. The washstand with its marble top works well in the space, the sconce lights take away shadows, a magnifying mirror is always helpful, and a medicine cabinet corrals all of ones daily needs. The natural light is a benefit but the window is fitted with a simple roller shade. The bead board and French inspired fitting signify a traditional bath and the white paint makes the space nice but bland.
