Glamourize with White and Gold

The whole controversy about whether the dress is blue and black or white and gold was a bit tedious..however, it prompted me to consider the subject of white and gold and how much I love it as a 'look'.

I recently did all I could do to convince a client to include brushed gold plumbing fixtures and hardware in a bathroom we are renovating for him...I was elated to hear 'yes, let's do it'...then in the morning I woke to an email which CRUSHED me...he changed his mind!!! Ok, so crushed is a strong word...but I was truly disappointed. I'll show the concept which I pitched in a post coming up soon.

Brushed gold is so gorgeous when used in a contemporary manner...it creates a classic and timeless, yet thoroughly contemporary look to a bathroom. It  adds an elegance and glamour which none of the other metals can quite achieve...
