The bathtub. Sometimes the tub is just part of a shower/tub combo and other times the tub is the focal point of a bathroom. I recently stayed in a hotel with the most beautiful stand alone tub. That got me thinking of the fact that the stand alone tub is not a usual design choice for the bathroom so I wanted to find some inspiration. Why don’t we all have tubs like these?
The Santorini home of hotelier, Costis Psychas, is about as perfect as I can imagine. First, it is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, Greece. Second, it has a history; it used to be the warehouse for a pumice mining operation that was on the Santorini Island and part of it used to be under water. Third, the inside is so beautifully simple and cozy (also, I’m a sucker for the rounded ceilings and arches). A lot of love went into the restoration and renovation of this space. Fourth, did I mention it was on a Greek island? OH! And the bathtub?!? Oh yes. : )

While browsing Pinterest today, I came across the most fabulous bathroom EVER!! HEAVENLY!

Ahhh, the bathroom. It seems that the bathroom is very often the place where people will be a little risky with wall colors, decor and such. Here are some fabulous bathroom setups.
I am not really sure it can be called a bathtub because it’s unlike any tub I have EVER seen. I came across this bath area via Pinterest (and they found it via The Messes of Men who got it from French By Design who thanks Architectural Digest, WHEW!) and I just had to know what it was made of. Apparently, it’s a giant piece of granite hollowed out and sculpted to be a tub. Not the least expensive tub around but what an exciting, unique and beautiful design.
