Moder Fall Wreath
I despise a naked front door -- it's like going without earrings. Just absurd!
Fall is ripe with bold pops of oranges, reds, and golds -- add subtle touches of blues and greens with this feathered wreath from Pier 1.

Choose Your Element with Dornbracht and Sieger Design
If you’ve a yen for performing your daily bathing ritual in the loving embrace of wondrous nature, try it for a day or two (or a week, if you’re the intrepid type). You’ll soon discover that the idea of being caressed by random falling water while the morning air nips at your bare skin is not all it’s cracked up to be. Besides, the season for outdoor bathing is nigh on over—unless you live in the Caribbean, perhaps. But failing that—and mindful of a realistic re-appraisal of the notion—how much better to indulge in facsimiles of same, albeit in a controlled and heated environment. Just so, The Elemental Spa collection of Bathroom Fittings by Sieger Design for Dornbracht distills the best of cleansing au natural into a tempting trio of water delivery devices.
KOS’ Shower Cabins Invite Bliss in the Bath
Italian bathroom manufacturer KOS would seem to enjoy the idea of a universal narrative for the bathroom experience. How else to explain the opening image on their homepage—looking out from a rain spattered windshield onto a vast expanse of river, over-layed text reading, “An original point of view. A story about Design, Water, Life, and People”—or the succeeding montage, which would seem to imply the bath-style of a happy threesome, or, at the least, an extremely close family. Speculation of lifestyle choice aside, KOS is known the world over for their sublimely inviting tubs, basins, mini pools, and showers, and especially so for the A&D coup of the “Shower Cabin.”
Wall Piercing Lights by Flos
Walls give us separation and containment. Along with roofs, which we might term a horizontal wall, they house us. They establish the frontier between inside and outside, architecture and nature, guts and exoskeleton. In the past, some architects have defined success (at least partially) as protection from the elements. Seepage would have equaled error; historically, we have shunned any erasure of the clearly defined edge. But that liminal space should be mined—and this exploration is exactly what Flos is doing with their Wall Piercing lights.
