    euro dash $

    “The best robe hook is one that I don’t see,” Marsh says. This is why she opts for the $12 Euro from Alno. It measures 1¼ inches by 2¼ inches and comes in finishes such as bronze, polished chrome, and satin nickel. Alno, 818.882.6028; www.alnoinc.com.

    triple play $$

    Because energy efficiency is important, Marsh often specs Marvin triple-glazed double-hung windows. “It’s hard to describe how it feels to stand in front of a window in the dead of winter and still feel warm and cozy,” she says. Marvin uses three panes of glass and a combination of low-E coating, and argon or krypton gas. Marvin Windows & Doors, 888.537.7828; www.marvin.com.

    minimalist marvel $$

    Marsh loves Duravit fixtures because they “offer simple geometry and minimal lines.” While Duravit tubs are squarely in the high-end, Marsh finds them “to be moderately priced for such a high-quality product.” Shown in a Mowery Marsh project above, the tubs come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and cost anywhere from $400 to $1,200.

    stainless steal $

    Vigo gets Marsh’s vote for high-quality undermount sinks at a relatively low price—about $300 and up. The 16-gauge stainless steel products feature undercoating and padding to eliminate sound. “The square-edge design adds a refined contemporary quality ... and the deep bowl is a personal favorite for function,” she says.
