drexel-declaration-clockDrexel Declaration furniture is one of our favorite midcentury designs, because of the lovely way it bridges modern and traditional styles. This Drexel Declaration grandfather clock, though: Decidedly modern — heading toward flower power even! All photos: UrbanAmerica on ebay.

drexel-declaration-clock-faceI hadn’t even focused on the fact that there was a Drexel Declaration grandfather clock — although now that I go looking I see it in our catalog (link below).

lanshire-clock-movementThe clock is 60″ tall, 14″ wide, and 9″ deep. The clock movement is Lanshire.

I love the look of these copper bathtubs. As you look through the selection of images, you’ll notice that the copper tubs actually work with a number of different approaches to design, from modern to rustic and everything in between. Copper has such a classic, rustic look, but with the right shape tub, it would look perfect in the most modern of bathrooms.

Copper also makes a great material for bathtubs because it holds heat so well. There’s a reason its been a very commonly used material, especially in the days before porcelain took over for the go-to material for bathroom fixtures.

Take a look at our copper bathtub gallery and see if it inspires you to take this design plunge in your own bathroom renovation!

Walk-in showers are becoming more popular in modern home design, because they have a very simple yet beautiful aesthetic that instantly make a bathroom more streamlined and sophisticated looking. It’s not easy to install a walk-in shower into a bathroom that hasn’t been built with one in mind, because the floor and plumbing all have to be specially designed to accommodate this kind of shower set up.

Walk-in showers have a very open, airy feel to them, and look fantastic in bathrooms that get plenty of natural light. Glass is the most common material used when designing these kinds of showers, since it adds to the openness of the design. Because of that element of their design, they can make bathrooms seem much bigger and more open.

Here’s a collection of images showcasing some of the most amazingly beautiful walk-in showers we could find, so hopefully you find some great inspiration for your bathroom design!
