The way in.....the handle is a hand wrought rivet strike found at the Alameda flea market. The perforations in the door give just a hint..................

The shower is lined in bejmat tiles from morocco and the doorway surround is wrapped in zinc.

The ceiling is a flattened barrel vault made of reclaimed French oak. The crystal formations like salt rubbed into the grain.

A trove of linens take residence in a cabinet made of an old window sash. The sculpture on top was on our wedding cake (21 years ago)

The vanity and soapstone sink

The mirror frame is made of parchment (goatskin), the sconces are old mud shoes mounted on a steel plate. The mud shoes are wood, silver, and mother of pearl.
