REVIEW:THE PERFECT BATH BY BARBARA SALLICK



THE PERFECT BATH
by Barbara Sallick
Rizzoli New York, $55.00
October 2016
Reviewed by Teresa Hatfield
Author, Splendid Sass



Barbara Sallisk, co-founder of Waterworks, is no stranger to the design of fabulous bathrooms.  Her work is spectacular!

I am certain many of you have already heard about this book and are familiar with Barbara's work, but let me tell you what I found in this book.  There is something for everyone in the design world.  The fixtures, the furnishings, and the art are on spot.  These are not just bathrooms, they are living rooms.

While you will find three of my favorites below, the book is full of everything you would dream of in a bath. Watch for its release in October.   
ENJOY!

REVIEW: INSON DUBOIS WOOD INTERIORS



Inson Dubois Wood Interiors
Photography by Mark 
Roskams
Foreword by Christopher Hyland 
Rizzoli, New York $75.00
Reviewed by Teresa Hatfield
Author, Splendid Sass




I can't say enough wonderful things about this book.  The eclectic mix, with so many beautifully color coordinated textiles, accessories, and furnishings is stunning.  And I was taken by the sculpture, which is my first liven art.


Not only does Wood also use shades of orange, the cover is orange.  Yes, I was also thrilled about that. 


You can preorder, or watch for my update when the book is published in October.


Below are just three of the exquisite rooms in this book which contains 318 pages of beauty. 

ENJOY!

My heart is broken for France.  It is time for change. Love you, friends.

Time to stop sugar-coating things.
