A Bathtub Boat!

bathtub-shaped-like-a-boat-2

The moment I spotted this fun, quirky (yet oh so beautiful and sophisticated!) bathtub boat on Shelterness, I knew precisely what I’d be writing about today. After all, it’s not every day you see a well-designed object that so perfectly beckons you to live that slow, meaningful life you’ve always dreamed of.

Indeed, life is fast. Slowing down for a warm tub sounds like a dream come true – especially when soaking in a wanderlust-inspired object. What do you think, friends? Would you purchase (or build!) a tub shaped like a boat? Or is it a bit too… nautical for your taste? Weigh in below!

Subtle Trends: Nautical Design

I love a good trend, but despise a room with a theme. My favorite spaces (by far!) are those that feature accessories that pull together a space and feature a design trend, yet seem to appear transitional in terms of time and location. In other words, a subtle trend is featured yet not glorified.

In the image above, I've sourced products with a seaside spin that aren't overtly nautical. In other words, boats, anchors and fish are uninvited!
