Love the room. What height are the towel bars behind the tub?

These were set in the field by the interior designer -- they look to be about 30" apart and I would say that the upper one is set at 6 feet above the floor level -- the towel overlap is a pet peeve of mine -- makes drying hard. Most bath towels need at least 36" to hang without having to do lots of folding -- two bars above a tub doesn't really lend itself to this all that well unless the user is on the tall side.

you are correct that the tub deck was slab material and that the vertical surfaces were tile sized. I believe that they both were limestone - and were the same stone. This is a material that the ID specified - and I think it was done through matching a sample. All by way of saying I do not have the name of the stone. Sorry.
Thanks for the question,

What is the width of sides on the tub deck? Thank you

Cathy Schwabe Architecture
My drawings show 4" for both sides but looking at this, and if I were to look at the field sketches, I'd say 6+" on the leading edge/side and 2 inches on the window side.
thanks for the question,

Where did you find these drawer pulls?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Cathy Schwabe Architecture
Hi -
Thanks for the question. The drawer pulls are available from two sources -- Mockett hardware and Tydix. is the link for the section of the Tydix catalog is the link for the Mockett version.
I have always liked these -- very simple, easy to grip and quite unobtrusive.
Have fun --
