    Lately, on Instagram, we’ve noticed a tale of two bathroom design trends: The rustic bath and the glam bath. While there are some bathrooms that meet in the middle, most tend to lean either one way or the other. Unfortunately, either design style can easily veer off track into cheesy - or gaudy-ville if not completed with premium materials and a design game plan.  Whether you want to create a glamorous bathroom—one that conveys you’re of good stock, old money, and high class (even if you’re absolutely none of these things)—or a rustic bathroom that will have visitors convinced there are rolling hills with wildflowers and cattle just outside the window (even if there are only brownstones and designer dogs), we have some tips:

  • Nickel, Perfected.

    A Hammered Nickel Sink; Perfectly Luxurious, And Perfectly Livable

    A nickel finish sink? So beautiful, yet so many questions! How is this finish achieved? How does it hold up? Is it easy to maintain? How does it compare with stainless steel? Why would I choose Native Trails’ nickel over a traditional stainless steel sink or another luxurious alternative?

Those nicks, dents, and scratches that occur during everyday use make a stainless steel sink look beat-up over time. But with Native Trails, they are practically invisible in a hammered Brushed Nickel sink, or in a Polished Nickel sink coated with MetalProtect®, our new sealer.

    How to Reflect Your Style with the Latest Looks, Finishes and Features

     

    “Don’t go thinking that just because your builder put in the big, wide mirror that it looks good, because it doesn’t,” says Dallas-based interior designer Carla Aston. This begs the question: If those enormous bathroom mirrors are out, what’s in? “Tall, slender mirrors that accentuate ceiling height and look luxurious,” says Aston. Also trending: mirrors in metallics (so glamorous) and reclaimed woods (so natural), round mirrors (so minimalist) and ornate or globally inspired mirrors (so eclectic). In other words, mirrors are now intended to reflect your personality as much as a piece of art might. Continue reading
