Fashion shows it, California Faucets knows it----Accessories change the look

ACCESSORIZE - Release Photo(Huntington Beach, CA, November 14, 2007) Giorgio Armani and Donna Karan and Nicole Miller understand accessorizing an outfit gives it great flexibility. Find the right color and style handbag to go with those strapless heals; jazz up your plain jeans with a colorful or glittery belt; wear dangle earrings or go for the big hoops; and don’t be afraid to try on that hat—yes a hat. California Faucets mirrors the kind of flexibility accessories bring to fashion with its exclusive Custom Faucetry™.

Custom Faucetry™ enables you to customize the look of every faucet in California Faucets’ lineup. In addition to the option of mixing and matching any handle with any spout, accessory details including crystal and porcelain are available. And more than 30 decorative finishes makes it just as fun and exciting to outfit your bath as it is to pull together a fashion outfit.  

The faucet you create to suit your taste is like the new ensemble you love even more after adding your personal touch. For example, the art deco style SAN CLEMENTE has a nostalgic look in the Pewter finish and the standard porcelain index buttons (shown). But it takes on a modern flair when dressed up in STRASS® Swarovski® sapphire blue crystal handle inserts and Satin Nickel finish (shown).

Or take the graceful, British-style BELMONT faucet with standard porcelain lever inserts, index buttons, and lift knob. The white porcelain offers a beautiful contrast against a dark rich finish like Espresso Bronze. But change into metal levers and a metal lift knob, and then dress it in English Brass finish and it takes on an entirely different style.

Vintage charm describes the CARMEL faucet with porcelain accents and the rustic Weathered Copper finish. Now create a more modernized appearance. Accessorize the cross handles with STRASS® Swarovski® clear crystal and slip on that Satin Nickel finish. The design possibilities number many with the ability to mix and match and accessorize.

The SAN CLEMENTE 8" widespread faucet lists for $768 in a Special Finish like Satin Nickel. Add $25 per handle for STRASS® Swarovski® sapphire blue crystal upgrade. The BELMONT in English Brass PVD Premium Finish is $910. Metal levers are available at no additional charge. List price on CARMEL in Satin Nickel is $768. When accessorizing with STRASS® Swarovski® clear crystal, add $20 per handle.
