Cool looks, new finds or what I love today.

Always on the hunt for fabulous finds, check out what is catching my eye. 
Backsplashes
 
I discovered a great new kitchen website called Beautiful Kitchens where I first found this funky glass back splash designed with red circles. It is from http://www.funkysplashbacks.com.
 
Heath Ceramics, dimensional tile was just what this kitchen needed.
The tile pattern wakes up an austere kitchen with flat one dimensional surfaces.
 
Here is the same pattern by Heath Ceramics, shown in a matte brown. I have always loved this pattern.

The same tile takes on a whole new appearance with a theatrical look. Almost as if a curtain is rising, using 3×9 shaped oval tiles in a custom color. Photo: © Annie Schlechter
This is in the Maritime Hotel, (Matsuri Restaurant), New York City in the Meat Packing District.  
Bathtubs
 
 
  
The clean contemporary lines of The Cube collection appear to have no visible seams. 
Found at Wetstyle.com

Are you ready to submerge? As in, get ready to get your body submerged in a deep tub. 
The BC09 from the Cube Collection is 30″ wide, 60″ in length and 24″ deep. 67 gallons. Comes with a Wenge tray.    A drop in tub available in a 1, 2 or 3 wall configuration. Glossy or matte finish.  
Designer note: I do not recommend this as a tub/shower application.  A 24″ depth is awkward to climb in and out of for a shower, especially for people with mobility problems or small children. 

The BC11, from The Cube Collection. 
10 possible configurations available. 
60″ x 32″ x 17 3/4″, 70 gallons.

 
The BOV02, from The Ove Collection from Wetstyle. 
It’s great that it has a wider ledge to lean sit on and swing your legs over and into the tub. 
72″ x 36″, 65 Gallon capacity to overflow. 

S 1978 Also from the Niche Collection from Wetstyle. 
Clever storage ideas for the tub collections.

  1. Hi,Super-flattered that you've written about Beautiful Kitchens (in your cool new looks post) but we didn't actually make the splashback (we're a magazine in the UK), it was a company called Funky Splashbacks (http://www.funkysplashbacks.com). However, we'd really appreciate it if you'd put us on your blogroll. beautifulkitchens.wordpress.com
