Italians know style, especially in Modern Design. An American husband and Italian-born wife were at an impasse on remodeling their Master Bath in a home previously owned by Tom Landry. The husband wanted to keep traditional aspects, and the wife wanted large-format tiled walls that reminded her of modern design elements found in Italy and Europe. The impasse was confirmed when the husband quietly offered me $1000 to change his wife's mind on the design. We all eventually agreed on a subtly sophisticated large-format tile and keeping traditional molded doors with Austrian crystal door handles, which married both the modern and traditional styles.
