Get a Look Straight Out of the Movies

If you go see Disney’s new film Old Dogs, staring  John Travolta, Robin Williams, Seth Green, and Matt Dillon, you might fall in love – with the bathroom.

The gorgeous tub behind John Travolta is Matteo Thun’s Lavasca bath from Milan based, luxury plumbing company Rapsel.

Free-standing tubs that become a focal point in well-appointed bathrooms has been a hot trend for a while now. The Lavasca tub is reported to be the lightest bathtub in the world.  Made from titanic resin, this tub weighs less than 100 pounds.  That’s good news if you are considering a second floor bathroom renovation.

The Pulvaie shower also by Rapsel, which I blogged about back in January 2008, is also prominently featured.  To recreate the shower in your own home skip the glass shower enclosure and install a metal ball curtain. I think ShimmerScreen by BCM Architectural offers great choices in both style and finish.

Other items you will want to get this look include the Hansgrohe Axor Citterio Single hole faucet and the Duravit Vero Washbasin.


For the walls you’ll want to select the Robern M Series with Vertical Lights and a mosaic tile in your favorite colors.  I’ve selected color 1270 from the Hirsch Glass Corp. Sparkle Glass Mosaic Collection.

When you are ready to take a nice soak in your new tub, you’ll need a hook or coat rack such as this one by Adesso to hang your robe on.
