Fun Shower Curtain by Thomas Paul

I have a few strange quirks; one of my quirks is checking out bathrooms. 
I judge a place by its restroom/bathroom.

Clean and neat are of course important, but I want to see something wonderful that surprises me - tile, towels, lighting, wallcovering, cool fixtures, etc. 

It may be a little strange, but I have met others with this same system for  judging a place by the bath.

I like good, interesting design.  Restrooms or baths seem to be one of the locations, maybe because it's a somewhat private or secret spot, that affords the oportunity to surprise or delight guests.

Can you relate?

Restrooms can be kitchy in my book - that's okay.  Visit Pickle Bill's ladies room (lift the fig leaf for a surprise.)

Restroom at the Slanted Door
I love the unisex restroom at the Slanted Door on the Pier in San Francisco.  There are wonderful big chunks of wood incorporated as a shelf in each individual toilet room.

In my mind the restooms at Jackson Triggs winery in Niagara-On-The-Lake stand out   I love the long concrete trough sink (it doesn't hurt that there is a heavy fermenting grape smell wafting through the building.   ;)

While perusing on line this morning I happend upon this fun, funky graphic shower curtain by Thomas Paul.   (Great designer by the way.)

Just the thing to liven up a bathroom!

Go big or go home.  I love it!!!

Only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to fun restooms.  I may have a new misssion...find the coolest restroom/bath. 

Or better still, design it!!
