This week in Remodelista Reconnaissance, our quest concerns a clawfoot bath in
the London home of designer Lonika Chande. True to her joyful way with color, the bath makes a statement in all-over rust red, quite literally down to its feet.
What’s its story? Read on.

The Sighting Above: The monochrome bath in Lonika’s historic London cottage makes a statement against a blue backdrop. (The WC is painted entirely in Gravel Pit from Dulux.) But where to find such a bold bath? The Source Above: The answer? London-based bath company Aston Matthews. The bath is their Astonian Verona Two-Taphole Cast Iron Roll-Top Bath with Regal Feet (currently available for £1,529.10). Above: Yet the Astonian Verona bath has unpainted feet. Here’s the twist: Each of the company’s traditional cast-iron baths comes primed and ready to paint in any color. The one in Lonika’s cottage? It’s painted in Callaghan from Little Greene—cast-iron feet, too.
