medalta – more than a museum

It was a hot day in July when my Mom and I rolled into Medicine Hat to visit the Medalta Potteries National Historic Site. This place is more than a museum. It showcases the ruins of the original factory, the history of Medalta pottery and the items once made there, an art gallery and working studio where you can see pottery being made.

beehive ovens

These kilns were used as ‘hotels’ in the evenings during the Depression by men looking for work.

The main entrance is pretty stylish. (more…)

inspiration – black clawfoot tub

black clawfoot tub

via desire to inspire

I’m starting to plan my bathroom renovations and a painted tub is definitely in that plan.  I love how sophisticated this black clawfoot tub looks in this space.  The perfect focal point in what appears to be a massive bathroom.  The light in the space is amazing and the curtains are hung wonderfully high to emphasize those killer ceilings.

It inspires me.
