Austin Texas Residence

The restoration of an 1899 Queen Anne design, with columns and double gallery added ca. 1910 to update the house in the Colonial Revival style with sweeping front and side porches up and downstairs, and a new carriage house apartment. All the rooms and ceilings are wallpapered, original oak trim is stained, restoration of original light fixtures and replacement of missing ones, short, sheer curtains and roller shades at the windows. The project included a small kitchen addition and master bath, and the attic was converted to a guest bedroom and bath.

It was a simple anchor attached to the ceiling.

You're right, that fixture is a reproduction. Unfortunately I don't have any information on it.

Good day, could you let me know the size of the bathroom? How long and how large, thank you.

There is already a great deal of talk about both the size of the bathroom and the tub in another discussion about this photo. Instead of cutting and pasting a lengthy string here, I'm going to let you go look for it. Thanks for asking.

Working in historic preservation we usually source from antique shops, estate sales, and/or auctions with the intent to refurbish.

And as food for thought I'm going to cut-n-paste a similar discussion. imlaurel: "Before you replace a regular tub, decide if you really want to have to clean under and behind a clawfoot. If you like long soaks, some clawfoots don't hold the heat and you spend so much time adding hot water to keep warm that it isn't relaxing."

And we added "We agree with Laurel's comment. It is important to do research first. We work with historic cast iron tubs which have superior heat retention but they are also very heavy, especially once loaded with water."

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Split Your Colors with Two-Toned Walls
You can also get this look without molding. This elegant and chic bathroom proves it can be done with stylish panache.
Danyelle Mathews added this to Ombré Makes the Grade at Home
If you're having a tough time deciding between a couple of paint choices within the same family, try buying them both. It's a quick compromise — simply divide up your wall and get to painting.
Most bathrooms have one small window, or no windows at all, which can make an already small space feel even more confined. If this is the case in your home, think about using color to lighten things up. I like to select two or three shades of my chosen hue and use the darkest color sparingly, and preferably near the lower areas of the room, then go lighter as I work my way up toward the ceiling. This makes the room feel more open, expansive and light-filled, and can help start the day on a cheerful note.
