A while back we featured the 1900s cabins of
Manka’s Inverness Lodge in West Marin. Now, as part of our Golden State week, we’re revisiting the full bath in each of the large cabins, each one complete with a clawfoot tub, an outdoor shower, and vintage fixtures. Here are some ideas for re-creating the look.

Materials Above: Benjamin Moore’s Steam paint is $39.99 a gallon through Benjamin Moore. For more ideas, see our post Architects’ 10 Favorite Warm White Paints. Above: Farrow & Ball’s Pitch Black paint is $110 a gallon from Farrow & Ball.
Fixtures Above: Victoria & Albert’s York Bathtub is crafted of a composite material called Englishcast, a blend of volcanic limestone and resin that results in a naturally white tub. It doesn’t have a surface coating that can chip or peel, and has better insulating qualities than traditional cast-iron tubs. With white feet and a chrome drain, it’s $2,990.30 at Quality Bath. Above: The Native Trails Palomar Vanity Top with Integral Sink is made of a cement and jute fiber concrete; $933.75 at Quality Bath.
Bath Furniture Above: Restoration Hardware’s Kent Medicine Cabinet is available as a wall-mount or inset cabinet in white or charcoal; $295 to $495. Above: Myson’s Lekoro Classic Electric Towel Warmer in polished chrome is only 18 inches wide; $1,124 at eFaucets. For more, see our post Remodeling 101: Towel Warmers. Above: The Restoration Hardware Pharmacy Large Bath Cabinet in white mimics a vintage-style cabinet like the one seen at Manka’s Cabin; $1,475 at Restoration Hardware.
Lighting Above: The Burnside Industrial Cloth Cord Pendant has the option of different finishes and cloth cord colors; $129 for the pendant at Rejuvenation. Above: Pair it with the Opal Flat Glass Reflector Shade for $149.99 at Rejuvenation.
Accessories Above: The Pittock Single Robe Hook in polished nickel is $39 at Rejuvenation. Above: A set of three Maxima Turkish Combed Cotton Bath Sheets is $58.49 at Overstock.com. Above: A set of six Maxima Turkish Combed Cotton Hand Towels is $38.49 on Overstock.com
