I can remember when Waterworks re-introduced 20’s and 30’s black and white marble basketweave patterns to accompany our Edwardian style pedestal sinks. They were a fresh reminder of a retro design and seemed to be the perfect solution for countless traditional small bath floors. They were an instant hit! The demand for them has increasingly escalated over the years.  I am now wondering if it is time to move away from the expected basketweave designs to experience variations on the woven theme. For inspiration, we have looked at the tradition of basketweaving and loom woven fabrics and rugs for pattern and texture.

Every now and then I find a bath that resonates with me.  The pink bath in this image is one of those “vintage” images that is all too familiar to those of us of a certain age. In fact, when we founded Waterworks 40 years ago, there were countless baths that looked just like this and many were far worse.

In mid-March I was in London visiting our showroom, our Waterworks team and clients (and also hoping for warmer weather that simply did not happen). However, the sun did eventually shine and I was out and about looking for inspiration. It’s interesting to note what catches your eye in the moment, and how that changes once you’ve returned home. When I reviewed my photos, it is clear that I was attracted to color in London — in the shops, in the Hayward Gallery and on the street. Bright and happy reds, pinks, greens and blues seem to dominate the spring palette, from the skirts and vests on display at local shops to the flora and fauna on the street.

In this blog and elsewhere, I have been writing about the bath for years. Of course I will continue to do so, but in 2018 I also plan to include more kitchen ideas and images in my posts.
