i *heart* plumbing fixtures

Paige posted a sink that made her heart go pitter-patter… it was this:


Paige, join the club! I had to have it so bad I bought it in gray (that’s a rubber trim around the sides) and navy.  It’s a precious little sink by Alape – a fabulous German plumbing line.  It’s not on their website… I did however find it here!  It is very light-weight – hard to tell by the photos- but it’s just a simple little glazed steel.

Can’t get enough – here she is in navy:


Our gray one  is in the garage and the navy one is going in a bathroom that is still in the works…


And more advice for your renovation – don’t get all tied up in fancy showerheads… the best on the market is the Speakman… pure and simple and great water pressure!

Only way to step it up from a Speakman – is the Double Speakman!



  1. You are my role model for knowing everything! Seriously. You know everything!!

  2. Seriously!! Where were you when I bought an expensive Jado showerhead that goes drip-drip-drip? I WANT that navy sinkette!! Might have to move up that new powder room date to NOW, please?

  3. You are sensational!!! I have a feeling you are are going to be hearing a lot from me in terms of this remodel. Can I get you on retainer? :)

  4. Very clear description.I enjoyed well while reading.Thanks!

  5. Hi! I love this sink. Where/how did you buy? Did you order it through Architonic? This is by far the best-looking sink I have found in awhile.

    The Alpe sink on your website looks fantastic,I could’nt get anywhere on the link,could you let me have any information on the cost
    & delivery ?

    Many thanks,


  7. Hello to all, how is all, I think every one is getting more from this site, and
    your views are pleasant in favor of new users.

  8. This post will help the internet viewers for creating new blog or even a blog from start to end.

  9. Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  10. As soon as a great two weeks have passed by simply give your ex a
    easy text to simply start a conversation just to see how they’re doing.
