On a recent trip to Chicago, I had the opportunity to stay at the newly opened The Langham, an exquisite luxury hotel located at 330 Wabash (home of a Mies van der Rohe designed building). I have been a fan of the architect since my days in design school. The landmark building is located in downtown Chicago adjacent to the river, 52 stories tall, and boasts over 300 guest rooms and suites. The second floor lobby (pictured above) is a testament to simple refined elegance.

The interiors of Travelle, the hotel’s restaurant, features a bar and lounge overlooking the river, and a dining room on the opposite side.

The hotel room suites are contemporary, yet classic lines, of understated elegance.

The entry features full height closets and a vanity.

Sophisticated furnishings, neutral colors, and pattern such as the links in the carpet and bedding create a timeless look.

I was in awe of the bar cabinet which features a tilt out for the coffee (happy to find my Nespresso addiction here!), a concealed bar fridge below, and the cabinet and drawers on the sides are stocked with all the hotel amenities you could ever want!

The well-appointed bathroom features a wall mounted Geberit toilet, dual Kohler sinks, and Zucchetti bath fittings.

The walk-in shower is completely walled in minimalist stone with both rainhead and detachable shower sprays and a sleek minimal linear shower drain.

A seperate WC features a wall-mounted toilet from Geberit. The European, contemporary design of Geberit’s wall-mounted toilet complement the Langham’s existing aesthetic. Many European luxury hotel designers have turned to Geberit for the sleek design and space-saving benefits for decades, and designers in the U.S. are beginning to follow suit.

Thank you to Geberit for the opportunity to experience The Langham.

Looking forward to attending the 2014 Kohler Blogger Conference early next month in Kohler, WI. We have been invited to stay and experience The American Club, a resort owned and operated by Kohler. In addition we’ll have the opportunity to experience the latest products from Kohler, including a factory tour of the Kohler Design Center. I am looking forward to connecting with several of the other bloggers that I know will be in attendance – and a first time ever visit to Wisconsin! (But first I’ll be starting off with a visit to Chicago where I will meet up with Julia, our Chicago-based blogger, and a visit to her design studio!) More to come on the blog!

As I was browsing Pinterest, I came across this picture of a charming powder room. When I clicked on the source it took me to a blog who’s writer is a Newport Beach based blog. Newport Beach is my hometown and the above image is quintessential beachy, evoking the homes of where I grew up. While it may be winter across the rest of the nation, here in Southern California it currently remains sunny and 70′s. The blue hues like in the above seem to fit in well here, year round.

I thought I would share with our Material Girls readers one of my online design projects, a “Get the Look” feature for a master bedroom. The online design services I offer works for client’s anywhere, looking for design help and direction. Clients email pictures of the room they are looking for help with along with the room measurements (including any other specific requests such as budget, style, needs, or existing furnishings to incorporate). Once received, I provide two furniture floor plan layout options for them to decide on. In this instance, the client chose the one below for her master bedroom:

From there I start selecting the furniture options (in most cases providing several options per furniture piece, varying on pricing – highs and lows) for the client to choose from. In putting together the concept board, I will usually select the best of the best options (as well as it becomes an exercise in seeing how the pieces work together). There are many times I move items around, switch things out, or even update selections as they are decided upon!

Here are a few key pieces of the master bedroom featured above for your own “get the look” -

Pondicherry Headboard with Nailheads from Serena and Lily – this headboard comes in several fabric options to choose from!

“Amelie” Mirrored Nighstand from Horchow – currently on sale!

Meena Table Lamp from Home Decorators – I love this lamp, wish it for myself!

Chloe chair from Room & Board (one great thing about Room & Board is that you can customize the leg finishes on many of their pieces).

 Serpentine Steel Gray Flatweave Rug from Layla Grayce – one of my favorite go to sources for fun and graphic area rugs!

“Maria Theresa” Chandelier from Horchow – another item currently on sale!!

Maison Armoire from Restoration Hardware – so pretty!

Grey Haze Hand Painted Print from Ballard Design.

{Additional accessories and furnishings that are shown on plan, not included in this listing.}

As part of Blog Tour London, we visited the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour in London. During our visit, we were hosted by two sponsors: Samuel Heath and Victoria + Albert. Samuel Heath specilizes in both classic and contemporaty bath fittings and Victoria + Albert produces the most amazing volcanic baths and sink basins. Here’s a highlight from our visit to both showrooms!

The entrance to the Samuel Heath showroom at the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour.

Sleek modern bath fittings on display.

Chic bath accessories in black.

My somewhat iconic (& personal fave) pic of fellow bloggers and blog tour members: Igor of Happy Interior Blog and Will of Bright.Bazaar blog “modeling” for the Samuel Heath showroom.

Just across the way is the entrance to the Victoria + Albert showroom.

Once again, I enlisted Igor & Will to jump in the bath together…

And they weren’t shy about it!

Beautiful sink basins on display at the Victoria + Albert showroom.

And another!

Inside the light filled atrium of the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour.

In conjunction with the London Design Festival, many events were also taking place, including major UK design magazines showcasing at the design centre.

Land Rover UK provided transporation to and from the design centre to other major events.

Just outside the Design Centre Chelea Harbour is a courtyard with the Vaughan showroom.

And there is indeed a Chelsea Harbour!

Thank you to Samuel Heath and Victoria + Albert for hosting us!

The Stoned Bathroom

Posted By Jill-LA | May 26, 2012 | 4 Comments | Category: Bed and Bath, Design Inspiration

Beautiful bathrooms bathed in natural stone…

Gold and glam with Carrara marble.

Lots of veining in the marble floors and walls bring color and interest to this bathroom designed by Steven Grambel.

Carrara subway tiles, always a classic.

Silver accents tie in nicely with Carrara marble too.

Stone tiles and a basketweave pattern tiled shower floor make for a more rustic bathroom.

Dramatic black & white: Carrara Marble with Nero Marquina 3×6 field tiles.

One dramatic slab of stone is like a piece of artwork in this bathroom.

For more natural stone inspiration, check out some of my images from a recent trip to a slab yard here, here, and here on Instagram.

Wallpaper in a powder room or bathroom adds flair and character…take a look at these wallpapered spaces!

Light and pretty, works great above the wainscoting!

Bright and cherry, with lots of pattern!

Simple fixtures…with bold pattern.

An elegant powder room.

A retreat of a bathroom, that is sunny and light filled with a graphic pattern.

A very narrow powder room with a bold trellis wallpaper.

Black and white stripes, so classic!

Stunning with navy blue grasslcoth above the patterned/textured wainscoting.

Another classic striped wallcovering, reminds me of men’s suiting material, for the masculine.

And a bit of whimsy!

Bathroom Basics

It seems as if bathroom remodels are on-going projects for me, having just completed a few with a few more in the works. In sourcing for inspiration, I often have to find bathrooms that are both functional and practical. Here are some that are fit the description!

A simple, refined classic bathroom will always remain timeless.

Clients often request plenty of storage, having a vanity with deep drawers & cabinets is practical.

Roomy shower stalls with rainhead shower heads are a luxury…

If room allows, open shelving facing the tub offers great storage for accessories & towels.

{via Pinterest}

A well lit bathroom is a must, this one offers flexible lighting in the way of a pendant, recessed, & sconces.

An interesting solution to maximize space and accommodate a tub & (double) shower combination!
