This is an incredible way for his legacy to live on forever," said Troy Carter, Entertainment Advisor to Prince's estate in a press release.
Unpopular Opinion: Clawfoot Tubs Are Simply the Worst. Clawfoot bathtubs are beautiful; there's no doubt about it. Reassuringly solid, with lovely antique detailing, it's not hard to see why so many bathroom renovators are wooed by their winsome charms. In fact, we've reached an interior design moment in which one would be hard-pressed to find a recently remodeled bathroom that isn't designed around a delightfully quirky vintage bathtub — call it the Joanna Gaines effect. However, we have a hunch that this what's-old-is-new-again fad is on its way out, for one simple reason: we're starting to remember why "old-fashioned" tubs fell out of common usage in the first place. Clawfoot tubs became a part of our collective design vocabulary as a luxury item of the Victorian era. By the 1920's, they were de rigeur, but by the midcentury, they were outdated, replaced with the more efficient built-in tubs of the 60s and 70s. Now, we're not encouraging a return to the shallow rectangular constructions many of us grew up with, but there are a few reasons that the clawfoot tub is not the bathroom design panacea it appears.
Rich Blue-Greens and Stone Surfaces Transform a Formerly "Cold and Sad" Kitchen. For California designer Caitlin Moran, color was key in renovating a 1920s Dallas kitchen for a childhood friend and her family. “I encourage clients to look beyond a white kitchen,” says Moran, who came up with a budget-friendly update that was more than a paint job but did not require a complete gut. The result: a richly hued space that only looks like an extreme makeover.
