Over the course of the five years we’ve lived in our home, we have done a ton of renovations. You could say we bought a fixer-upper. Or maybe I just married someone with really particular taste. :) Before moving in to our home, we gutted pretty much the entire house down to the studs and installed new copper pipes, a full-on electric upgrade, a new kitchen and two new bathrooms. And that we just the start. It’s been an on-and-off-again labor or love. More emphasis on the labor part. A bunch of our fixtures are Kohler like our apron front stainless sink and low-flow toilets. The quality is very high and there are a ton of choices ranging from stylish modern to more traditional styles. I’m not surprised to see Kohler asked Jonathan Adler to design a color series for its kitchen and bathroom sinks. The colors: Piccadilly Yellow, Greenwich Green, Palermo Blue, and Annapolis Navy are not your every day household shades. It’s no doubt that those bold choices wouldn’t go with every kitchen or bath. You’d pretty much have to plan the entire room around the sink! But if one were doing a renovation, it really wouldn’t be terribly hard to have a white subway tile back-splash (shown above) with all-white cabinets and a statement sink, right? It would make for a pretty kick-ass room actually. Any modernists out there think they could make such a statement in their home?
