A Selection of Modern Bathroom Vanities with A Little Vintage Flair to Make the … - YAHOO!

A Selection of Modern Bathroom Vanities with A Little Vintage Flair to Make the … - YAHOO! introduced a selection of bathroom vanities that combine both styles - they have all the minimal, slightly surprising design expected from modern bathroom vanities, but are made in simplified antique and vintage shapes for a modern take on classical elegance.

(PRWEB) July 21, 2012 – the Home Improvement Super Store has made their goal to deliver the right product to the consumer, with that in mind, shopping and home design tips, as well as special product selections are being introduced.

Some homes are so architecturally distinct that they dictate the way to design inside. Victorian, Cape Cod, cottage style, and ranch homes all come with set, expected interior decor, just to name a few. But if a home doesn’t conform to any particular structural form, there is a lot more freedom to choose any decor. Although, it can be difficult to choose a single style, and effectively executing an eclectic design isn’t easy. Especially when it comes to bathroom design, many people are torn between decadent vintage styles and a simpler, sleeker modern design. The opulence of a period bathroom is great for a little R&R, but modern bathroom design often makes for a cleaner finish. introduced a selection of bathroom vanities that combine both styles - they have all the minimal, slightly surprising design expected from modern bathroom vanities, but are made in simplified antique and vintage shapes for a modern take on classical elegance. Designers at HomeThangs highlighted the key elements of successfully mixing the two styles together.

1.    Antique-inspired shape and modern finish. A Vintage Inspired WA3037 vanity by Legion Furniture uses a dresser-like shape, but instead of keeping the elegantly curved legs, it opts to draw out the antique style in the curved bottom edges, and the slight but whimsical coiled handles. White bathroom vanities are a good way to fuse vintage and modern design. White is prominent in modern bathrooms, largely because the color is perfect for comparing and contrasting textures rather than shades. The slight gloss on a vanity, for example, will make it look clean, elegant, eye-catching, and unique when set against more antique white materials, like faux fur rugs, gauzy curtains, or even other white paint with a different level of shine.

2.    Contrast. For a look that truly fuses modern elegance with classical decadence, a Modern Vanity like 203037-B by Bellaterra Home or Aubrey Vanity by Cole and Co should be put in a black and white bathroom. Contrast is key in modern design, and the higher the contrast, the bolder the look. Having a few dramatically vintage pieces, like a black clawfoot tub or a beautiful black accent chair can really ramp up the wow factor, making a space look incredibly elegant, even if all the elements are relatively simple in design.

3.    Texture. The Studded Black Vanity 203057B by BellaTerra is, in one sense, one of the more traditional vanities on this list, with the shape of a French Regency dresser from head to toe… except for the spiky, glossy black studs that cover the entire front face of the vanity. This vanity does dramatically merge two styles.

4.    Balance between the vintage and modern. Whenever two styles are merged, tub, lighting, sink, or even tile or window dressings can push the needle in one direction or the other, but classical/modern bathroom vanities can mingle the two styles in a lot of different ways as well. While the studded vanity has the shape of an antique piece, it probably couldn’t mesh with a more conventionally period inspired bathroom. The Antique Console Vanity BF80010R by Belle Foret, on the other hand, is more authentically vintage. Even though it is a simplified design, it has more intricate detailing on the edges than many similar transitional bathroom vanities, as well as the antique style legs. Here, the black finish is the most modern element.

5.    Wood finish. The Venisia VENISIA-V30-BK bathroom vanity by Avanity keeps the curved legs and feet and the arched bottom edge of some similar vanities, but instead of a pure black or white finish, it opts to accent the black legs and counter with a dark wood grain finish. Though the doors themselves are made of MDF, not real wood, the effect is striking – like a dramatic accent wall, the horizontal wood grain works equally well to tie in vintage wood elements or as an echo for more modern elements, like striped fabric or animal prints.

Many bathroom vanities balance and blend many design elements, and provide a venue for new unique and eclectic takes on conventional styles. With so many modern bathroom vanities to choose from, creativity is really the limit. is not only a home improvement superstore, it also provides expert design tips and a comprehensive shopping guide, taking the ideas from professional interior designers, and offering tips to the consumers on how to pick the products to best suit their needs.

Johnny Depp gives love prezzie to his ex Vanessa - The Sun

The Pirates of the Caribbean star gave the model an antique gold pendant bearing the message “My heart is always with you.”

The couple, who have two children Lily-Rose, 13, and Jack, nine, announced last month they had “amicably separated” after 14 years together.

Even though they never married, it was said 39-year-old singer Vanessa would receive around £100million from Johnny, 49, who is said to have a net worth of £200million.

It is believed Johnny and Rum Diaries co-star Amber Heard, 26, who were reported to have “grown very close” on set, called time on a fledging relationship.

Johnny and Vanessa are holed up at the actor’s £4million home in Plan de La Tour. A source said: “They are having a family holiday to show the kids they are still a strong family even if those two are split or not.

“But the fact he presented her with such a touching gift, it’s almost as if they could make another go of things. Johnny wants to be with his family, he’s a very family orientated man. His kids mean everything to him.

“What they need more than anything is to get together far away from Hollywood and that is what they are doing.”

Johnny has another week before he is due back in New Mexico, US, to continue filming The Lone Ranger.


PBS Boss: Fred Willard Replaced At Market Warriors Over Worries Actor's Arrest Would Cause 'Distraction' - YAHOO!

A top boss for PBS explained that Fred Willard was axed from his gig as the narrator of "Market Warriors" over fears his arrest last week on suspicion of lewd conduct would become a "distraction."

"At the end of the week, when it became known, we actually realized that we needed to move fast because we're taping now," PBS President and Chief Executive Officer Paula Kerger told reporters on Saturday morning at the Television Critics Association summer session in Beverly Hills.

PLAY IT NOW: Was Fred Willard Caught Performing A Lewd Act?

"It's a new series and our concern really is that his circumstance would become a distraction for the series, which we're hoping will have an ongoing presence on public television," Kerger added.

"Market Warriors," which airs Mondays at 9 PM on PBS, follows four "pickers" who hit up flea markets and antique shows across the country, nabbing finds they turn around and sell at auction.

Replacing Willard as narrator of the show is TV host Mark Walberg, who MCs PBS' companion show, "Antique Roadshow."

"We talked to him and we decided that what we would do is bring Mark Walberg, who is hosting 'Antique Roadshow,'" Kerger said. "'Market Warriors' was intended as sort of a series to run in parallel with 'Antique Roadshow' and we'd ask Mark to do both. It actually links the two shows together."

On Friday, according to the Associated Press, the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office said Willard's case was eligible for a diversion program.

The program would keep the actor from being charged with lewd conduct if he undergoes a counseling course.

Earlier in the week, Willard, 72, was arrested and booked at the police station in Hollywood on suspicion of committing a lewd act in public.
