lovely vanity...
more marble than I could ever wish for (read: afford) but the sketches and personal items just make this space delicious

Marble is my least favourite finish, I've even had it torn out before, it reminds me of gravestones

Yes! And a very spacious space since my baths are small closets compared to this one.

Yes, it is lovely. I love the art work too. But for a petite shorty like me.... I would never be able reach the sink. This looks beautifully styled but a bit impractical in real life to me:)

I love it! Marble is just such a classic - do up a room with marble and you won't have to retile forever! love the addition of the art :)

Love all the drawings and accoutrements on the bench! One of my favorite designers - his pre-fall collection is fabulous!

Agree - so beautiful. I have a friend who found 2 inch thick marble for her kitchen counters from a salvage place and got it for a steal. I covet it!

I have not seen this photo before. I'm really into single sink vanities now....(I know most people prefer two)...but just look at this beauty....tons of space to personalize....and less cleaning?!!! k

Great look! I love the artwork in the bath, but would be a little nervous of the moisture.

Delicious indeed...just like the name, Giambattista! How fab is that name!? (and by fab, I mean sexy!)

the space looks very personal & I do love marble...but just in white or gray.
