Rustic Sparkle

Wednesday, January 27, 2010 | Category: Bed and Bath, Design Inspiration, Material Girls Projects

I recently selected this sink for a client’s teeny-tiny Powder Bathroom.  It is so beautiful in person.  I love the hand crafted nature of the bowl, and the way the imperfect hammered finish refracts (is that the correct science term?) light in different directions. 

Here is my drawing of the narrow sink wall (sorry for the small size, if I enlarge it, it skews the drawing). 

This porcelain tile mosaic (also gorgeous in person) will be installed vertically on the entire wall (in the lighter color).

This is a sconce option.  I’m still looking for another mosaic tile for the splash behind the sink, as well as a decorative mirror.  The sink base cabinet is also still up in the air…it’s a process, people 🙂

I just had to share some more photos of Native Trails’ sinks…I really love the hammered nickel finish because it can go traditional or contemporary!   


And the piece de resistance…a GORGEOUS bathtub:

I’m glad you enjoyed my list! It wasn’t easy narrowing things down!

Wow I just love all the basins & sinks. Very different, but not too unusual that they will not go out of fashion. Particularly think the hammered/distressed look is amazing. Great job girls!
