Guest Post: Kristina Crestin Design

Designer Kristina Crestin with Mindy Sevinor-Feinberg at
last summers Designers Shine with Designer Bath Awards.

We are very excited to announce our new Guest Blogger series! At the Designer Bath showroom, we work with a lot of design/build professionals who rely on our team of showroom consultants as a resource to facilitate the completion of their design projects. Some designers are working on dozens of bath projects at a time, and we are there to help them finalize the numerous selections while managing the ordering and delivery process. We thought it would be nice to share some of this collaborative work with our readers. 

Our first Guest Blogger is Kristina Crestin of Essex, MA. You may remember her from our Passport to Design Blog Tour post from earlier this year. Kristina shops our showroom on a regular basis, and has completed many projects with Mindy.   

“Working with Kristina is always an exciting privilege. Every project is different then the next. Her creativity and depth of skills are infinite. I feel that by working with her she expands my potential. Kristina is one-of-a-kind. I always enjoy helping her bring her projects from design concept to completion.”

Guest Post: A Citrus Bright Bath by Kristina Crestin ...

I always have fun working on kids baths – typically it’s an opportunity to take more risks and be more creative. There is also the challenge of being able to bridge the gap in age appropriate design as the kids grow up.

We’ve been thinking industrial fun on this one; playing with color and materials to start. I stumbled upon this cool vintage metal cabinet at Apartment 528 and we were sold! We liked that it was vintage without hitting you over the head with the industrial idea. That led me to the idea of a textured glass to integrate into the shower wall. Initially we were thinking something retro and reeded, but if we can source chicken wire glass we’re going to totally do that! That would be a nice connection with the sconces from Schoolhouse Electric that we like, along with the simple styling of Grohe’s Somerset faucet that I’ve used over and over again.

Cross your fingers that we go ahead with the design! (follow Kristina’s blog to keep track of her progress)
