I love tile, so attending Coverings, the largest tile and stone expo in North America, is one of my favorite design shows. I attended this past April in Vegas and enjoyed the sexy new styles and smart new standards.
I wrote about them all for my latest Kitchen & Bath Design News Trend Spotting. You can read it here. Lots of eye candy to enjoy!

I wrote a piece for Forbes.com this week on the latest design trends shared by Houzz. Lots of wellness to write about. Check it out here.
“Barndo” style is trending!

I also contributed insights to How to Make Your Bedroom the Ultimate Post-Adventure Retreat sponsored article that appeared in Outside Magazine.
Last but not least, I was quoted in Verywell Health about walk-in tubs.
