Next up from bInspired is Matthew Quinn. He specializes in one of our favorite topics around here — kitchens and baths. His bathroom showcase is bigger than my bedroom, but what a luxury if you can afford it. The floor lamp… the shower curtain… the tiling… so beautiful.

Some of Quinn’s inspirations:

Ocean: “So much of growing up in Key West was about the time spent on and under the ocean. The colors, the textures, the pattersn and the shapes are deeply embedded in my design style.”

Metal: “It is such an honest material that can be transformed into almost anything through the eyes of an artist and hands of a craftsman. It can be made to appear as soft as it is strong. Its appearance can be manipulated by content, sheen

Yucatan: “The unexplored raw wilderness and mind-blowing innovation of the ancient ruins.”
