Black - copper & bronze | Blogtour Sponsor Barber & Wilsons | NKBA


During Blogtour we stayed at city boutique Hotel 'On the Ave'. I loved the hotel and had a wonderfull room with a huge bed on the 8th floor. I really enjoyed the bathroom, there was a huge bath! But I especially loved the stainless steal sink and shelves.Maybe because at home I have this boring white sink in my bathroom and ditto tiles. 

To be honest I only love my shiny white cabinets and the huge mirror and I would love to update it a bit.... more black and for a totally different effect a copper or bronze sink and copper faucets to give it the hotel feel I love. I remember how we always tried to hide the copper pipes in our kitchens. But nowadays it is totally hip and trendy to keep them in sight as an industrial future. If you are not into this industrial look,  this weathered bronze tap  by Barber&Wilson might be something for you. Many more taps on the Barber&Wilsons website




During blogtour I learned one thing... there are some really great design professionals out there! Through the presentations we got from our sponsors and the talks we had with them during the events, I got a different look at the process of designing in this industry.
Special thanks goes to Barber & Wilsons for being one of the kind sponsors of BlogtourNYC. Barber & Wilsons is a Family-owned independent company with 100 years of experience in the manufacture of water fittings.
