a big, fat sink

lovely, yes?

i've been scouring craigslist for a bathroom sink, longing really for a vintage schoolhouse sink that would accommodate two faucets. well, that hasn't happened. but i did find this:

looks familiar right? okay, maybe not so much from above or in this crummy picture.
but really, this was a hell of a find.
vintage porcelain coated cast iron with a surprisingly modern shape. 22 inches wide, 42 inches long, and 8 inches deep with a big fat rounded lip on three sides.
someday this will be in my bathroom with his and hers wall mounted faucets.

i'm having a not so secret love affair with brass animals.

if i had $5,000, i would solve my dining room woes with this 1970s brass ibex head table with glass top.

first dibs

more realistic, but still out of my price range at $1,000, is this coffee table

dayton's craigslist (yes, really, dayton, ohio!)

unexpected animals

moody and serious, except, hello, light up deer!
(via apartment therapy)

this room is a bit minimalist from me, but i love that basset hound portrait on the rear wall!

sweet like lime

oh, who knew a lime bathtub could be so good?
(via design sponge)
btw, that adorable little stool - saw it with my bff for $12 on sunday - and she didn't buy it!

and for the record, this is a killer tile job. it's so hard to get the tile spaced to make black grout look this good.

black mantle

and keep all the rest of the trim white.
(the brass petal)

oh, and of course, i would take the brown leather wingback.
