the crisp, white bath

White is my all-time favorite “color”.  It’s so refreshing, calming, and uplifting.  If you are going for a look that is clean and timeless, white is the way to go.  It works especially well for kitchens and baths.

Because the weekends never seem to hang around long enough, I thought I’d supply you with an assortment of bathroom eye candy for your Monday morning.

Pigeon & Poodle: all in the details

Design really is in the details.

The larger pieces always seem to be the main focus of the designer, but we have to be careful not to lose sight of the smaller details and accessories we put into each project.  It’s these pretty little things that give the design character and make it unique.  Even the most minimal or simple designs will need to be carefully refined.

A few months back I found this wonderful accessories company called Pigeon and Poodle.  (Great name, right??)  They specialize in bath accessories, but also carry other home items like frames and baskets.  Their product line is inspired from nature and world travel, so each piece has its own story.  Beautiful handcrafted trays made from capiz shells (as shown below), marble soap dishes, and onyx tissue boxes are just a few of the offerings in their bath collection.

Here’s some of my favorites:

Handa Open Tray - Pigeon & Poodle

Manchester Turquoise Brush Holder - Pigeon & Poodle

Malabar Wastebasket - Pigeon & Poodle

Avignon Mother of Pearl Frames - Pigeon & Poodle

Bali Tray Set from Pigeon & Poodle

Pigeon and Poodle kicked off 2013 debuting at the Atlanta Gift Show, New York Gift Show and Las Vegas Market, and have been featured in House Beautiful.   I think big things are in store for these guys!  Their products are sold to the trade only, but visit their website to see full collections @ .
