It’s Throwback Thursday!!

In the 1950’s Sunset Boulevard and Cinderella were playing on the big screen.  Families were moving out to the suburbs and kids watched Howdy Doody on 12 inch black and white TV sets.  The median family income was $3,300 a year, and milk was still delivered to the doorstep. 

Here’s a look at a 1950’s bathroom…no pampering going on here!!

There’s no comparison to today’s bathroom which is not only functional but a room you want to go in and never leave!

This gorgeous contemporary bathroom which was designed by Divine Kitchens is cool, sleek and has sophistication written all over it!  This bathroom recently seen on Houzz, features Quoizel’s Downtown Collection.    Gleaming glass ball accents complement the opal etched glass drum shade and shiny chrome finish, bringing a soft modern sensibility to your home.

Instant Holiday Makeover!

The holidays are fast approaching and there is no time for big renovations.  However, here are a few of Quoizel’s popular items that can change the feel of a room in time for your guests to arrive.

The featured mirror is classic European elegance with its refined design fit for royalty.  The hand-forged iron is twisted into graceful curves and can easily transform any foyer, hallway, bathroom or bedroom.  The matching bath fixture celebrates the beauty of light with its warm graduation of color.  This fixture can be mounted as an uplight or downlight and is part of Quoizel’s very popular Duchess Collection.

Freshen Up the Powder Room…

The holidays are here and entertaining is in full swing! 

Although you and your guests will be cooking in the kitchen, eating in the dining room and relaxing in the living room, it is the powder room where your guests will need to freshen up.  What easier and economical way to brighten up your bathroom than by replacing your bathroom fixture. 

Quoizel’s very popular Pacifica Collection is as soothing and serene as the ocean itself.  Whether your company is staying over for the evening or just slipping away for a few minutes, this design will make them feel like they have stepped into a relaxing spa.  The pure white acid etched glass has a unique oval shape, and it is embossed with a fluid wave pattern.  The Empire Silver finish has a subtle, satiny gleam to it, and the simple backplate does not detract from the Zen-like feel.
