Recently, I was hunting around on Pinterest (nautical furnishings and furniture) and came across an image of an aluminum ship's window re-purposed into a nautical mirror. This picture was linked to a blog written by Courtney Price titled "The Hampton Designer Show-house" where top interior designers turn a New England home into a, as the author describes it, "decorating masterpiece." The house located in Bridgehampton, New York was certainly dressed up in top fashion.
|Authentic ship fixtures re-purposed and used to create this beautiful nautical bathroom.|
By New York design company Melanie Roy Design.
Part of the first floor (bath and mudroom) was designed by New York designer Melanie Roy of Melanie Roy Design selecting a strong blue and white striped wall covering and navy blue walls contrasting white painted wood trim and bathroom cabinet with polished steel drawer pulls and bath fixtures. The mirror and lights above the bathroom sink were re-purposed ship salvage items including a ship's window converted into a mirror (could also be the front of a medicine cabinet) flanked on both sides with 90 degree aluminum caged passageway lights. (see below).
This is a beautiful example of utilizing authentic, high quality nautical fixtures, re-purposed and used once again as part of creating a very attractive nautical inspired bathroom. Kudos to designer Melanie Roy!
