Is this an outdoor shower? - We built a custom home with window in shower wall, and a waterfall wall was to complete this original plan. However we went over budget, and this never was completed. So now we want to build a waterfall or plant a garden. We're still on a budget! We could use some help.

Question about the sink - This bathroom is truly an oasis and the Purist Wading Pool Sink is beautiful! I could only find the base of the sink on Kohler's website - not the shallow basin. Did you specify a basin from another manufacturer? Also, does the basin have a drain that aligns with a drain in the base sink? If not, how does the basin drain? Thank you!

When we did this project, the basin was available from Kohler. It doesn't drain, but simply overflows. It is not attached to the sink so it can easily be moved if it becomes an annoyance. It is more for effect than function, but it is beautiful.

Shower - Do you step down into a tub?

Mark Brand Architecture
Yes, exactly. Originally my client wanted an Ofuro, a Japanese Soaking tub outside. For budgetary reasons, plus the normal editing that goes into a remodeling project. we went with an indoor sunken tub.

There is also a piece of glass between the shower and the vanity.

The purist set up looks pretty on a picture but is highly impractical. The rubber ring at the bottom of the bowl detaches very quickly, the mirror delaminates, and the splashing is common.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Japanese
Style Secret: SerenityIf there's one word that sums up Japanese style, it's Zen — a Japanese sect focused on meditation. Interiors that reflect this influence whisper of contemplation, balance, peace. Lines are simple, vistas unobstructed, light abundant and the overall feel calm. East meets West: Even if the bones of your space aren't strictly Japanese, you can approximate the look by paring down. Strip your space to the essentials: Pack away clutter, undress walls, get rid of superfluous furnishings. Arrange what's left in a way that maintains an open, flowing sensibility.
