Sommer Pyne's HydroTap All-in-One Arc in brushed gold
A stunning tap that caters for both filtered boiling and chilled water – as well as hot and cold – was needed for a family home that also doubles up as a film and photoshoot venue. Interior stylist and online retailer of all things homely, Sommer Pyne or ‘House Curious’ as she is known in the online world, certainly has an envy-inducing home. A stunning six-bedroomed Victorian property, the interior is a mix of classic and modern, light and dark, resulting is a striking family home.
With a young family and a home business to run, Sommer values products that are time-saving. Having previously had a boiling water tap in her kitchen, she knows how convenient they are, but having access to filtered chilled water had become increasingly important. “It got to the point where I was feeling so ashamed of how many bottles of water I was buying every week,” Sommer explains. “We drink a lot of water as a family, but the amount of plastic that comes with buying ‘nice tasting’ water is ridiculous. I’ve been used to having boiling water on-tap for a while, so I knew that the next logical step was to have a tap that also allowed us to have filtered chilled water too.”
Sommer’s house is not only used as inspiration for her blog, but it is also a shoot venue and has been the location for numerous projects. With this in mind, Sommer needed a product that not only delivered the water she wanted, but it needed to look as stylish as possible. “It was important that I found a tap that fitted in well with my kitchen. The choice of styles and colours Zip has available is incredible! It was actually quite an easy choice for me though as I have gold as an accent colour in the kitchen, so I chose the All-in-One Arc in brushed gold. I love the fact that I just have one tap to do everything - filtered boiling, chilled and sparkling water as well as hot and cold for washing up - as it means I can retain my uncluttered style."
"The five water types has been a revelation for the whole household! We all enjoy the filtered chilled water, and I no longer have ‘plastic guilt’. The filtered sparkling water is so useful when entertaining and for making healthier ‘fizzy’ drinks for the children."
