In the Showroom with DXV...

Visiting a bathroom showroom might not always sound like the most exciting thing on earth unless you're actually looking to redecorate your home, but if, like me and the other BlogTour participants, you get excited about beautiful design, then it is of course a fabulous thing. Throw a party into the equation and you can't fail to have a great time. The showroom in question was that of DXV American Standard and we were invited to a fabulous cocktail party hosted by Hearst and Editor in Chief Newell Turner. So far, so brilliant and so fun as you can see...

However, there was one little problem for me. How do you take pictures when there are too many interesting people to chat to and you're having too much fun? Well, lucky for me, DXV have been an absolutely fabulous company and opened their showroom to me a few days later. So, I had the chance to calmly wander around, take in the details, admire the designs and take my pictures. 

So, if you thought you can't get excited by something as utilitarian as a tap or you think a bath tub is just a bath tub, think again. Looking at how various periods have been translated and incorporated into DXV's designs is a great way to understand more about the company. The range is divided into four design eras: the Classic (1890 - 1920), the Golden Era (1920 - 1950), Modern (1950 - 1990) and Contemporary (1990 - today). Each era has its own distinct style which has been followed to create some beautiful bathrooms, fixtures and fittings. All pieces are all classy, timeless and just beautiful. If you've ever looked at a bath tub and thought "I can so see myself in there with a glass of chilled bubbly", then you surely know what I mean, right?
