the freestanding bath

I've been having a lot of fun going to open houses with my parents on Sunday afternoons. We were checking out a single-family home (I think on Sanchez St.) bordering Noe Valley/the Mission. Oh lord, best old boys' club bathroom ever! White hexagonal floor tiles with black border, cherry wainscoting, cherry-framed mirror and cabinet, pedestal sink, walls in a dark grayish blue (as to BM Newburyport Blue), little white phalaenopsis, and a grand cast iron clawed bath tub with original brass fixtures and brushed black sides. Mmm!

Have consequently been thinking of/wishing I had a clawed or freestanding bath tub.

I love everything about this space, minus the rug, so much pink, and silver fixtures.

A generally very shapely bathroom:


If you know a spoiled little girl who has her own bathroom:

Love the floorboards, alcoves, and the rolly tray! It would also work nicely as a bar...or double as a bar...
