Painted Clawfoot Tubs

I’ve had a couple of write-ups this week about my bathroom makeover. First on Curbly and then on Apartment Therapy. Damn, some of those Apartment Therapy readers are so opinionated!! There are comments wondering where the toilet roll holder is in the new bathroom and where the shower curtain is! Seriously?? It’s a damn photo and I’m a stylist! I’m not interested in showing you where the toilet paper goes. Obviously we use it! Does it need to be in the pretty picture?  Geez.

I shot my house and that room many times for various publictions including Design Sponge and Anthology Magazine and each time it was in varying state of “doneness”. The pics Apartment Therapy used were probably taken before I’d decided where to put the loo roll and it wasn’t until we styled it for Anthology mag that my husband had built a custom shower curtain rail. So chill, please, Apartment Therapy people! 

Anyway, I thought I’d share some of the images that were inspring me when I designed that bathroom and some that I’ve seen since.
