Occasionally, I come across a vintage bath that is so compelling I like to post a single image. In this bath for Barbara Hutton, I loved the choice of book matched marble with just the right amount of activity on the surface, the contrasting color scheme, the classical ornamentation on the soffit over the tub and the brass tub fittings. Great design choices never go out of style.

Generally, I am not a fan of “vanities”. They often look like kitchen cabinets that have been transported into the bath. I fully understand their practical aspects; much needed storage, counter tops for amenities, decorative hardware, space fillers… However, what I prefer is something that looks more like furniture and is more compatible with furniture in the adjacent rooms.
