Bathroom Inspiration from The Boundary Hotel

Posted on | August 21, 2009 | 12 Comments

I just spotted a few lovely baths that caught my eye over at Remodelista. Greg really wants to use external shower faucets where the pipes come out of the wall like the image above. Our current bathroom have the pipes inside the wall. Our bathroom stall wall is an exterior wall exposed to the elements. Meaning the wall has little shelter from the freezing outside elements. He’s fearing the pipes could freeze if we kept the pipes in the wall. In this worst case scenario we would have to knock out the shower tile to fix any burst pipes if they were to ever freeze. This issue could be solved if we designed the pipes to be inside the shower stall like above. I think the pipes look kinda cool and industrial.

Wiscasset, Maine: The Marston House & Treats

The Marston House: Wiscasset, Maine

I’m skipping around a little bit but I promise to add all my new Maine spots to my growing list over here. When we were returning home we stopped by The Marston House in Wiscasset, Maine. The store on the first floor of an old house turned B&B has a nice collection of antique linens and objects from France. The space is filled with the most intense but lovely perfume of lavender. Greg made me promise to plant a whole crop of lavender next year. I was inspired by the set of antique pressed flowers prints framed with fabric tape and glass. Reminded me of Amy’s lovely diy botanical print project I spotted over at design*sponge. So simple and beautiful.

Just across the street from The Marston House is Treats a specialty food and wine shop previously run by The Marston House owners. Greg and I bought a few bottles of wine and a very yummy cookie. Take a peek inside even if you don’t buy anything. The space is totally cute.
