We are getting closer and closer to putting the finishing touches on The Vintage Round Top's new Boho cottage! As we approach the big reveal in the coming weeks, we'll be sharing sneak peek images of the details chosen for the design of Boho.
When we designed Boho, we were intentional about including an additional full bathroom for guests attending an event at the home or for overflow guests who may be sleeping on the daybeds. We want to make sure that everyone feels welcome and comfortable, no matter if they stay for a couple hours or a couple days.
As far as the design behind the additional bathroom, we created a color scheme in whites, browns, and blacks. This sneak peek image of these metal cubby drawers, which look to possibly be lockboxes, is a great representation of the colors we envision for this room. These metal cubby drawers serve as the vanity in this bathroom and are definitely the vintage element in our modern vintage style.
We can't wait to reveal the big picture in how we designed the use for these drawers, but for now we can talk about how we retrofitted the plumbing inside this vintage metal box. Special thank to Jonathan Dahl Woodworks for helping us build this really great one-of-a kind piece. Jon's work is incrediable and it has been a real treat to be working with a master craftsman!
We wanted to keep the functionality of the drawers, but because of they way we designed it, we had to work with the plumber and cabinet-maker to fit the plumbing inside of the box. It can be daunting to retrofit vintage pieces, but don't be afraid to try it! I promise it's not as scary as it sounds! Retrofitting is great for design but it also allows the pieces to be multi-functional, which is always a plus.
