Luxury Twist

A recent visit to B&C Select at the Laguna Design Center seemed more like a visit to Rodeo Drive when they shared the exquisite line of faucets, knobs, and door handles by THG. Known for their use of precious metals, stones, and Lalique crystal, these jewels are right at home in the most luxurious baths in the world, mega yachts, and private aircrafts.

To add some serious BLING to your next high end kitchen or bath project visit the folks at B&C Select to view the entire THG line. The entire collection can also be viewed at www.thgusa.com

For the love of DOG

I'm guilty of having two of the most pampered pooches in the OC and I am constantly on the look out for great new pet products and design trends to spoil not only my own hounds but also those of my design clients. From kitty condos to puppy compounds the sky is the limit and just when I thought I had seen it all I stumbled across this...

The folks at Bradco Stainless Products re-create cluttered drawers into organized storage for everything from aluminum wrap to k-9 cuisine. This clever pet feeding drawer keeps clean bowls and kibble at the ready and they will even engrave fido's name on the lid. Integration is the key to an organized and efficient kitchen so ditch the tupperware and add this slick functional pet feeding drawer to your list of kitchen improvements.

Elements of STYLE

Artist Allison Berger uses age old glass blowing techniques to create one of a kind pendants for her custom chandelier installations. Etched by hand, each pendant is an artistic interpretation inspired by the translated text from Leonardo Da Vinci's sketch books. Groupings can be arranged in a multitude of configurations, creating a truly custom contemporary crystal chandelier.

Nestled in the foothills of Phoienix, AZ is a study of harmony between nature and structure. Designed by Chen + Suchart Studio as an homage to the iconic Camelback Mountain beyond, their innovative design combines architectural vision and a commanding view to achieve this contemporary masterpiece.
