Memminger Center:Charleston,SC

This sink reminds me of sand dunes. Don't ask why. Just saw an amazing production of 'Oedipus'. Bodes well for the next few days.

WC:Volubilis,Morocco

A real toilet that flushes here and a nice enough sink with soap. Still have not seen a toilet roll holder with anything in it. Beautiful ruins from 23BC. Known for the wonderful mosaics and early Roman architecture. Muddy after a night if heavy rain, but full of spring flowers and few tourists. Amazing.

I love coming to this hotel's lunch spot on a tiny promontory by the ocean. Half a chicken roti and a small bean salad and I am good to go for the afternoon as Smuggler's Cove. Note the cute ceramic sink with snail shells around the rim from the Bombashay store.

While the 10 bedrooms at the spa have similar dark wood dressers and head boards with organic white linens and fluffy duvets, the bathrooms tend to have their own touches. Mine, which is shared with another room, has this beautiful sink and matching soap dish. This morning my stomach muscles are the most painful. Hope nobody makes me laugh and that we don't have to do eagle crunches in yoga class. Fat chance of that!

The Study Hotel:New Haven,Ct

The best part of picking up a friend at the train on a Sunday is being treated to lunch at Heirloom for making the effort. Great salad with tart apple, shaved brussel sprouts, goat cheese, wheat berries and cranberries. Yum. Like the chickpea starter salad as well. And how chic is this shiny metal sink and faucet?

Mud: Manhattan, NY

I love this!! Never mind that inner courtyard diners just on the other side of the stain glass window could hear every drop if they cared to listen. Note the stacking of the toilet paper and the vase of tight flower buds in the jelly jar. Didn't even care that the sink was so old the stains will never come out. This is my kind of New York find. Looked like a tiny coffee bar from the street, but as one wound down the woodlined walls past the tiny open kitchen, there were four tables inside and a surprise covered inner courtyard with 8 tables. The breakfast was fab as well.

Telepan: Manhattan

First time at this west side trendy neighborhood restaurant. Good food, calm and quiet setting. Think you get the idea from the restroom where the hand towels had the name printed on them and a creamy trough sink. Nice look.

Essex Meadows: Essex, CT

What a surprise this restroom was. Chic and cheerful. Maybe I will have to reconsider my old age plans or not. Happy to report that I was only here for the Essex Auxiliary of Child and Family Agency's 11th Annual Fashion Show. Cute event but I was tired and most of the outfits were not my style. I did enjoy all the children modelling fashions from The Red Balloon- where I used to buy my 30 something children clothing. Glad some businesses have survived.

Hartford Stage: Hartford, CT

Posted in Commercial Space |

WOW! Knew it had been a while since I went to the Hartford Stage, but did not realize they had renovated the lobby and installed all new restrooms. This is only half of the stalls. No more spending the entire intermission waiting for a chance to pee at this theater. Will make for better concession sales! Love this center island with back to back sink arrangements where everyone has their own mirror towel dispenser and trash hole. The play was equally delightful- Bell, Book and Candle with New London's own Kate MacCluggage. Only 4 days left to see it.

Old Lyme Inn: Old Lyme, CT

Posted in Commercial Space |

The newly renovated Old Lyme Inn is the place to be it seems- at least the night I went to dinner. Didn't seem like anyone I knew had stayed home. Loved the Spring Pea Soup which was minty and fresh. Also the lamb chops which were rare and delicious. The interior is much lighter, cleaner and entirely welcoming. Think this will be a great asset to the area, especially when the jazz club in the back gets started.
