Just a little round up of plumbing installations using exposed copper pipes and simple classic cross handles. Although all the images show the rough plumbing combined with vintage porcelain tub or a rough concrete surface, I can also see the copper pipes working beautifully in an all-white minimalist bathroom clad with corian.























































Usually we write about bathrooms.  But today I would like to digress a bit and share with you an amazing house, with an amazing swimming pool.  Take a look at the Villa Midgård designed by Stockholm based DAPstockholm.


The front of the building.

A peek into the pool from the front.  How cool is this?

The bathroom in this house is pretty great as well, and deserves a separate post.  Stay tuned.



I have been looking for bathroom cabinets without mirrors and I came across some cool ones with the Swiss cross graphic. This inspired me to see what other “cross” bathroom items can be found. I found 2 great tiles: one from Ann Sacks and one from Alloy Design. I also found a sweet fabric, that would be great for a shower curtain, as well as a burlap basket that could be used for extra towels, tp rolls or even magazines. Love them!
