Good morning, Design Chicers! It is a beautiful day for a book club luncheon in my lovely hometown of Salisbury, NC. When it’s several book clubs together, all the better! The Slightly South of Simple tour is off to a great start because of book clubs and garden clubs, which we would imagine are some of the oldest and most beloved organizations around.

But, sometimes, there’s really no need to reinvent the wheel.

When you’ve got a good thing going, why not stick with it?

Cast iron sinks have been around almost as long as bathrooms themselves, and their enduring style and timeless attitude is a playful nod to the past, one that Ansley, the interior designer protagonist in Slightly South of Simple would love as she redesigns the historic homes in her town of Peachtree Bluff, Georgia.

Cast iron sinks come in as many styles as their are bathrooms.

And hearty, functional design that complements other bathroom stones, metals and textures, these old favorites can easily be dressed up or dressed down to suit any space.

From brightly colored to simple white, cast iron sinks add an immediate charm to any bathroom. Have you ever lived in a house with a cast iron sink?

In Good Taste:Brady Design

1md_0cf4ba_Brady_0500-Low

The more we see, the more convinced we are that paring down, keeping it simple and coming back to those clean lines is the way to go. With the busyness of everyone’s lives today, the mental clutter and chatter that tends to take over, coming home to something sparse and streamlined is almost a necessity. When it comes to getting back to those basic values, Brady Design is tops. They manage to create rooms that feel at once open, airy and perfectly chic. Every detail is perfectly choreographed so that each space feels like a place we couldn’t wait to come home to. From kitchens that wow to living rooms that stun to master bedrooms that would put us to sleep in the best possible way, one look and you’ll see why we think Brady Design is in good taste.
