Smart and sexy faucet
I spotted Brizo's Charlotte electronic faucet at Dwell on Design and it is a true charmer. You’d expect style from this fashion faucet brand and the cocoa bronze cladding with metallic accents delivers that big time. But smart is sexy, too, and Charlotte’s hands-free control is super-smart (and water-saving). There are matching accessories but this faucet is the real star.

Elegant meets practical
Regular Gold Notes readers know I love ceramic and porcelain slab! Until recently, however, all I saw was solid colors with a slight texture. In the last few months, at a San Diego showroom, I spotted a stone look that knocked my socks off! (I'd love this in my master bath!) This stunning porcelain slab from Italian manufacturer, Iris, has all of the beauty of the marble it honors but none of its staining or chipping shortfalls. Iris can clad your vanity or your shower walls. It can go on your floors or surround your tub. Like other ceramic and porcelain slab surfaces, Iris is heat, scratch and stain resistant.

I really liked the new sinks Jonathan Adler designed for Kohler. They were on my must-see list at the recent Dwell on Design show and they didn't disappoint. The shapes show off the fun lines for which Adler is known and the colors are absolutely delicious! This is my favorite.

I love when retro traditional meets modern innovation and the new hexagonal tile I saw at Cevisama in Spain knocked me out. There were the traditional black-white combos and newer combos. The form is familiar and comforting. The size and color tweaks freshen the look. New manufacturing technologies make it low maintenance.
