something a little different for the bath...





from Remodelista via Bien Cuit

...corrugated metal.  Perfect for that edgy loft/weekend lake house/artist's studio. And what about that mix in the last image? Corrugated metal, crystal chandelier and ruffled shower curtain....

They say it's" all in the mix". It's definitely in the mix with the right "eye". these guys definitely have it!

What's better than grey? Grey stripes, that's what!

I have to be honest, not sure I like the corrugated metal plus I’m wondering if it’s going to rust due to the moisture, it does when used on roofs. Really don’t like the laundry room type sink in the first picture. The last picture actually works because all the components seem to balance each other out. Thanks for an interesting post, got me thinking!

Tanja @ Postmodern Hostess said...

Can't decide if I love or despise the sink in the first pic. It could be fantastic, but as @Acquired Objects said, it could read as laundry room.

Cool idea for a post! Doubt if I'll have the guts to try corrugated metal anytime soon, but fun to see.

An unexpected mix always produces the best results. Have a great start to your week!

I've seen these images before... they are fantastic. I love the corrugated metal especially how it all comes together in the 3rd image.
We built a corrugated metal enclosure in our side yard to hide the trash cans. Now I want to make a corrugated metal address plaque like the one whose house I'm helping to stage.

I love the contrasts, tin can be so fab ...I've seen it in kitchen installs and it is great!

Would like to have this at the lake. Great post.

I am certainly absolutely definitely one day going to use corrugated iron in a bathroom, maybe for an outdoor shower? Harking back to my Australian roots!

So what if it rusts? I'll call it patina.

Interesting! I used corrugated metal for a fashion shoot once and it was awesome, never thought about decorating with it but that last image has me thinking!

LOVE this! Such an edgy look, amazing! And probably not too expensive either, no?

Julie Holloway said...

I love that so much! I tried to get Chris to do our basement bath like the last picture...I think it was real expensive. I love that look. Fun post.

It's different, and I in a world of look alike kitchens and baths, I am all for different and unique!!

Ivy Lane said...

Very different... but I likey!!

I've always thought a chandelier in the bathroom was the ultimate in decadence! I love the mix in the last photo - kind of cool industrial/romantic chic!

Yum!
Especially when mixed with frills like in no 3!

In theory, I should hate this (since I'm not keen on either urban or romantic), but the blend works perfectly!
