Both Minimalist 2 bathrooms in Chelsea are finally finished. We had couple of posts covering the construction: TWO MINIMALIST BATHROOMS IN CHELSEA and PROGRESS IN CHELSEA. And now you can see the final results. Here is the first bathroom.  It is smaller than a typical New York 5×7 bathroom so it took quite a bit of tweaking. Instead of a cramped bathtub we have a spacious shower. Large mirrored medicine cabinet provides plenty of storage. Over scaled mirrors give an impression of a larger space. Photos of the second bathroom – same design, different layout – coming soon.
































































Once in a while I find myself browsing for washbasins, and I kept noticing that one particular type of basins was catching my attention.  Or rather, it was a series of basin and washstand combinations, by Barclay.  What is it that kept me looking at this series?  Perhaps the simple, geometrical shape of the basins, or the equally simple, but rustic and bold design of the washstands.  Most definitely the striking effect the combination of those two is creating.  I also love the idea of having the basin to the side of the washstand, creating space for a make-up counter.  I am already dreaming of a country house in which I could place such a set…
