Starfish on the vanity

In an existing Victorian attic a new dormer bath and double shower subverts Victorian ideas of privacy with a textured glass block wall along the property line with view of neighboring rooftops.

I love the faucet. Do you know where it came from?

Not certain. Dornbracht and Watermark have plenty of fine well crafted faucets at a price. Not unusual to find similar from the usual cast of characters at Kohler, Grohe, etc. Recommend you take a look at your local plumbing showroom.

These were hexagon, 1", classic size. They were not glossy but given the amount of grout joints, slipperiness wouldn't be an issue, although scratching is. We used a natural or sterling colored grout.
