So after 31 DC’s I’m starting to scrape the bottom of the barrel in terms of classics that I love (I was going to post about the Womb Chair today but it kinda freaks me out a smidge and also I think it’s uggers), midcentury modern or otherwise.
But today I thought I’d post about one luscious lady that has truly stood the test of time: the claw foot bathtub. First created in the 1800′s from cast iron and lined in porcelain they were luxury items that only veeery few could afford. Happily for us that is no longer the case!
As you can see here, the piece fits really well into seriously trad styling but can also hold its own in a crazy contemporary scheme:
I have a serious soft spot for metallic clawfoots but today I thought I’d just stick to the painted jobbies.
First up, how about some dark moody beauts…?
Yummy brass fixtures on the RHS here, and those floorboards!!
Or are you more of an all-the-colours-of-the-rainbow kinda gal…?
[Side note, can we all please give this FLAMINGO WALLPAPER some lovin'?!]
Floaty drapes and shower curtains get the thumbs up from moi:
And I’m seriously enamoured with these cooler shades of green and blue:
More brass fixtures!! Stop it, it’s too much!
So which would you pick…?
It’s my 30th birthday next week (crumbs, not entirely sure how that happened) and we’re using it as an excuse to travel in south Vietnam for a week to celebrate – will try to keep the posts rolling as normal but please humour any hiccups…
Have a happy weekend y’all, what are you up to??
