Call Me Cerise

When Le Creuset’s best-selling hue was introduced in France, decades ago, the master enamellers who crafted the now-iconic shade of red, called it Cerise. When the colour was introduced to North America, its name was translated to Cherry. Although a literal translation, it never quite captured the authentic passion of its roots. Le Creuset now pays homage to its origin. Say bonjour to Cerise.

The Double Ladybower Vanity was chosen by Architectural Digest for its AD Great Design 2017 Award. Martin Brudnizki conceived the vanity with simplicity in mind. Elegant, light and modern, it uses white marble and brassware in a pared-down design.

FUNKY LIGHTING

— SIL’s PICK —

“Bold & Big are making a splash in the bathroom. From floors to backsplash, say goodbye to neutral & minimalist and hello to colour, mosaics and texture…”

Silvana Longo
Editor

The combination of aged brass, marble and a sphere emanating light—what’s not to love? The hand-blown glass diffuser is clear on the outside and etched white on the inside, creating depth and polish… I would definitely add these sconces to a new bathroom. Boone Wall Sconce, $376, Hudson Valley Lighting is available in Toronto at Royal Lighting & Universal Lamp.

hudsonvalleylighting.com

 

A playful mixture of materials and finishes, intersecting lines and contrasting shapes, characteristic of 1980s postmodern design. Three overlapping shapes define the sconce: a textured Venetian glass square, an oversized, bold leaf finished isosceles triangle reminiscent of a Spinnaker sail and a stainless steel circle. $585. Royal Lighting, Universal Lamp.

Emilie Simpson
Art Director

Geometric tiles are still going strong, especially oversized ones. The latest eye-catching collection, Progetto 4D with its deep blue hue, has been all the rage with mid-century fans. These tiles are ideal as an accent wall accompanied by the plain version of the same tile or—for the more daring— on all the walls of the bathroom.

Progetto 4D is available in two colours (shown here in Deep Blue, and White), with four different 3D- motifs, in a matte 16″x32″ format.

Contact ceragres.ca for pricing.

1 The Gone collection, 8″x8″ format

2 The Orchestra collection, 8″x8″ format

3 Hops wall tile Nero in a 3″x6″ format.

Trend Watch: Marble Mix

by Silvana Longo

Marble is a luxurious, timeless stone usually seen gracing the surfaces of bathrooms and kitchens…So coveted, in the past few years I have watched this classic material, real or faux, extend its scope from the countertop and floor to smaller decor and accent pieces throughout the home. But it doesn’t travel alone; marble pairs up with gleaming metallics, warming up the traditionally lux, albeit cool material, with this perfect marble mix. From accent tables to wallpaper, this style story of two becoming one lends sophistication and interest to everyday pieces.
