Dear Debbie, we are building a cottage in the woods, which is our dream forever.
We use recycled wood and any other recycled materials as much as possible to complete the room.
Do you have any sources or ideas for the kitchen and bathroom?
Dear Hannah and Doug, I admire your adventurous spirit and know what it feels like to realize such a dream.
I have been decorating a 800-year-
The old villa and farmhouse in Tuscany have been for three years and I have been to countless quarries and salvage yards, various flea markets and roadside sales to collect materials and furniture for my new home.
When I searched the internet, I stumbled upon the local footprint.
Net, a company that produces the most amazing sinks and cabinets.
Their works are craftsmen.
Made from natural and sustainable materials such as copper, concrete and recycled wood.
For the kitchen, they have a hand made concrete sink, reinforced with jute fiber, which is very strong and sustainable.
These sinks are about 40-per-
Lighter than standard concrete.
Antique and hammer copper sink as farmhouse sink and trough sink style has real hand made
Simple and engaging gouging quality.
For the bathroom, the vanity and mirrors were made by craftsmen using recycled winemaking materials and recycled barnwood.
The Bordeaux wall-mounted cabinet displayed here used to be a wine barrel.
The oval sink installed below has bronze or handmade
Dip brush nickel finish.
Each Bordeaux frame has the seal of a unique barrel manufacturer.
You will get the "wow" factor combined with process and sustainability;
Perfect for your handmade home.
Dear Debbie, I have a child in my 50 s. era bathroom.
Above the sink is a large chrome mirror and glass mirror and the cubicle under the mirror is in poor shape and I want to replace the whole unit.
What is my choice?
Dear Francis, look at the new LED-lit mirrors;
They are slim and provide high quality light to film cameras.
Everyone looks great in these mirrors.
The mirror is hung on both sides with a modern open frame to place lotion, soap and beautiful toiletries.
These containers and the wonderful smell they send out add an inviting sense of luxury to the bathroom.
