I like Daphne Osena Paez. When I grow up, I want to be like her. I'll wear beautiful clothes every day, have a house with a red door, design something (shoes maybe), have a TV show (on the lives of fabulous women maybe), and have lovely little girls.
Anyway, I was watching her design show, Urban Zone, last Sunday and she featured the house of architect Ed Palma. I promptly got obsessed with the sink. I have no photo but let me describe it: It's a slab of cement covered beautifully in mosaic tiles and its middle gently slopes downward so that the water runs off to a hidden drain. The slope is so subtle and the tiles are ingeniously done that you'd think it was level. The faucet hovers over this slab and your first thought is "Where's the sink?! All the water will splash everywhere!" But you get the surprise of your life when the faucet is on and the water just pools in the center of the slab, shimmering against the dark silver tiles before gently running off to a secret place.
I love it. I want it. One day, I'll have Mr. Calma make me a sink like that. Daphne did tell me a tilted sink is easy enough to make. Till then, I've been looking at sloping sinks and Kohler faucets online and this one looks cute:Vince just read this post over my shoulder and said, "I don't want you to be Daphne. I like you." Sweet!
