Brent Darby






Have you ever found something and known immediately that you had to have it, no matter what? That's what happened to the owners of this bathroom photographed by Brent Darby and featured in Period Living when they discovered the incredible cast-iron Victorian canopy bath at a salvage yard. Despite the fact that its price tag was higher than their entire bathroom renovation budget, its large size created a bunch of layout issues, the floor joists had to be reinforced to take the extra weight, new plumbing had to be installed, in addition to the trouble of getting it inside the house with a forklift...they were determined to have it. I think it was all worth it! I love all the finishing touches, especially the delightful cabinet with the butterflies!

The span of that bathroom is amazing! I do love the tub, but also the towels, cabinet, gorgeous flooring... I've have blue and white on the brain lately, and am wondering how I can introduce it in my home!

Incredible! I have never seen such a unique bathroom - ever! I'm in love with every detail. I'd say all the expenses and work were worth it because this bath is definitely one of a kind. I don't think I'd want it for myself (though I love the sink and love vintage fixtures - perhaps not so large and demanding), but I would love it if a neighbor had it and I could peak in from time to time! :P
