Discovered at SF Girl By Bay, this artful, grounded, homely home – on the very excellent Rip & Tan blog
(kettle on and settle in, you’ll want to spend some time exploring Rip & Tan)

This is perfection – those tiles (absolute faves), the sinks, the floating timber vanity, the drawers instead of cupboards…

Beautiful laundry (really dig the vertical shiplap clad cupboards) by the same designer – Australian interior stylist Catherine Heraghty (The Stables). If these two give you the feels, go here for even more bathrooms by Catherine

Little wonderland for a big imagination.

This bathroom manages to feel both heritage and very now, thanks to the aged brass and the tiles that read a little as masonry (the benchtop is tiled, too – see?)

Stunning entrance from the same home. That brick floor tiling is a genius move, especially teamed with the powder blue.

And because I couldn’t help myself – the kitchen from the same home. Love the deeper timber alongside the blonde timber ceiling, the patina’d (maybe not a real word) brass handles, the textured subway tiles. More of this inspiring house here.

You know I have a thing for itty bitty kitchens.

Concrete tub – yaassssss!

Designed by one of my all-time favourites, Vincent Van Duysen. Steel framed windows as a wall? Um, yeah.

Now that’s my kind of laundry.

Another space that perfectly balances an air of tradition with a touch of modernity. We’ve got the timeless solid butler sink, ye olde bronze faucets (can anyone tell me what that spigot is for – is that a sprayer?), the classic country-style black cup handles, I could go on… with that pinky taupe paint, fish scale tiles (I love them ‘upside down‘ like this) and Aesop hand care.

Edit: The sink mixer is this one, an Ionian bridge-style tap in English Bronze, and that little side tap is indeed a sprayer –  the hose pulls out over 1m long. Huh. The more you know!
