Steal This Look: Vintage Bath from Country Living Magazine

Issue 41 · Lighting Options · October 13, 2009

Rough luxe is the design word of the moment, and this bathroom (via Country Living Magazine) illustrates some of the principles. We like the way the owners mixed glam touches (gold leaf trim) with vintage and utilitarian elements (a utility sink, for example).





Above: A strip of gilding at the base of the tub adds a touch of glamour; a Sampler Gilding Kit (covers approximately 10 square feet) is available from Caromal Colours for $40.


Above: A length of knotted rope serves as a door handle.



Above: The owners left the markings from the salvage yard on the vintage door.


Above: Peddler's Wire Basket; $98 at Uptown Country Home.


Above: Rustic hooks fashioned in Vermont from tree branches; hand sanded and finished with predrilled mounting holes (screws included). $40 each at Live Wire Farm.
