One of our first stops on BlogTourNYC was a visit (and fab party) to the new New York showroom of DXV. DXV is a brand new luxury line of kitchen and bath products from a brand we all know and trust, American Standard. There are four collections, the Classic, the Modern, the Golden Era, and the Contemporary. To introduce their new luxury line, DXV partnered with six talented designers, who each designed a room using the new DXV luxury products.
Mary Douglas Drysdale created an all white luxurious bathroom. I love the free standing soaking tub and the curved vanity and vessel sink.
Just imagining myself in this room lowers my heart rate.
Designer Meredith Heron referenced the glamorous Golden Era to design her Great Gatsby inspired bath room. I can imagine this bathroom in a Beacon Hill town house in Boston,with a glass of champagne on the brass side table. It’s both decadent and luxurious yet at the same time functional and modern for today’s life style.
Marilyn Russell was inspired by industrial chic for her bathroom. Raw elements, earth tones and metals appealed to the masculine while the color orange and round shapes was a nod to the feminine. “Akin to yin and yang, this masculine space is tempered by the circular symbol of femininity”…Marilyn Russell
Marilyn chose the faucet as her starting point and repeated the circular shape around the room.
Corey Klassen also chose an industrial chic vibe for his bathroom. I love how the all white fixtures (the chic) contrast the with darker copper penny tiles and porcelain wood-like wall tiles (the industrial).
Cheryl Kees chose over the top glamour for her bathroom. Starting with a peacock blue velvet mirror she incorporated everything from glamorous faucets and hardware to luxurious mill work, tiles and lighting. Cheryl says she wants to walk into her bathroom every day and feel beautiful, pampered and luxurious. I think she accomplished it!
Susan Serra looked to Scandinavian design as her inspiration for her kitchen for DXV. The clean and simple lines of the cabinetry along with the sculptural forms of the lighting and accessories and most noteworthy the DXV pot filler, completed her “Modern Cottage” kitchen.
As you can see, even though all six designer rooms are completely different “style wise”, they are all designed with DVX products. You can see more images of their rooms (along with the products they used) as well as a video of their design process here. It is definitely worth watching.
I think the designers did an outstanding job and would be hard pressed if I had to choose a favorite. How about you…do you have a favorite?
