Design in Unexpected Places

You never know when you'll be surprised by unexpected design. In this case it was, in all places, the unisex bathroom at Taco Boy in Folly Beach! The two side by side cement sinks look hand made & well done. I like how they painted the sink interior white and the black stones lining the bottom worked as they were clean and fresh looking. Love the industrial lighting fixture against the light blue walls.
Whose the face in the background? -- my husband, with his sunglasses pushed up after he's just asked me, "Can we please leave now?" I should also mention that this was not an icky unisex bathroom but rather well designed. Each bathroom had a completely closed in door (not a stall)and there were two entrance doors into the bathroom, on either side of the sinks, that were half glass.

So glad I'm not the only one who thinks about taking a camera into a bathroom! ;)
I went to a restaurant recently down here in Brazil, and the basin was lined with orange slices - was way, WAY cool. No camera that day - bugger!

Inspiration strikes at any given time. Cell phone cameras are getting better and better. I capture lots of things unexpectedly. Sink with stones to me, represents being at the river!

Love it!

stones are a great way to hide the grime of years that will not come off - reminds me of the stone "tile" that some use now in their bathrooms - my sister has it - it is like bathing in a riverbed.
