When Leslie and Charley Parnell moved into their current home, they knew right away they wanted to lose some walls and give the home a more open floor plan. Working with designers Scott Paterek and Tammie Weaver of Massimo Interior Design, they ended up with a spacious kitchen (which happened to make the cover of our September issue!) perfectly suited to their urban-inspired style. Their bath also received an overhaul that resulted in a walk-in closet for both him and her. Read the full story here, and scroll below to see before images from this west Little Rock makeover.
Room of the Week 9.07.10
For today’s pick: a beautiful bath, introduced at KBIS 2010 (the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show), which was held in Chicago.
This was my favorite room from the hundreds of media images I reviewed in putting together our new product picks for our September Kitchen and Bath issue. When I saw this Kohler tub, which has a BubbleMassage feature (you have to read about it to appreciate it, but it sounds heavenly…), I was ready for a soothing soak.
Seeing the new products introduced each year is always a treat, a preview to what we might see in showrooms and homes in the future. And the shots that show the products in room settings are especially inspiring, a different look than we might find locally. Like this MTI Whirlpool Lydia bath–I loved the look of the tile run on the vertical instead of the usual horizontal.
Or this striking black and white bath, with a geometric Petra tub from MTI Whirlpool. The way the black and white tile was inset in the shower–and how it complements the floor–caught my eye.
