The things that were so fun when we had no money to renovate are now such a pain in the ass when we do.....like all these D E T A I L S
The tub is bought (and gorgeous) but I can't find the right tub filler. We are not going very modern - it's more The Beach meets The Bowery Hotel - so I was pretty against waterfall tub fillers, polished chrome, and nickel.
I started google searching bathtubs in Sunset Magazine which is now my FAVORITE magazine and came across this amazing image of what looks like a garden hose faucet as the tub filler.. More digging later, I find out it is Dana Marron's house (I know her) in Laguna and it IS a garden hose faucet used as a tub filler.
Dammit. That Dana. Always been an inspo.
Genius. Done. I'm searching for vintage garden hoses and going to get them oil rubbed. It's going to cost me WAY less and look so bad ass.
