Stock Tank Tubs Are the Next Stock Tank Pool. The latest trend to take over Pinterest involves using the stock tanks designed to hold farm animals' food and water as a way to add a country touch to your bathroom. The concept is quite similar to clever stock tank pools, but more permanent, since they aren't drained and covered once the weather cools down. But trust us, you'll be happy to show off this creative take on a standalone tub all year long. Not only will house guests not be able to stop talking about their unique bathing experience, but these tanks are also affordable (they're only around $114 and $138 on Amazon). If you're convinced, there are a few ways to put your own spin on this trend. The galvanized surface (a.k.a. the protective coating of iron or steel that gives the tank it's color) is striking when paired with wood floors and exposed brick. This particular container also features unique grooves and indentions, which easily turns it into the focal point.
This Black and White Bathroom Is a Geometric Showstopper. This Chicago homeowner thought she wanted a white bathroom, but one photo changed her mind. That picture was the elegant black-and-white Bath of the Month in House Beautiful’s June 2016 issue, and when she saw it, she immediately grabbed the phone and called its designer, SuzAnn Kletzien. “That project gave her the courage to go beyond basic white — she was immediately drawn to the contrasting hues,” Kletzien says. Never one to replay a look, the designer stuck to that alluring palette but mixed classical elements, like picture-frame trim on the walls, mirrors, and glass doors, with statement-making flooring and dining room–worthy lighting that will inspire your next renovation.
This California Kitchen Is Made for Holiday Entertaining. Kitchen designer Alison Pickart hails from a long line of engineers — her great-grandfather founded the model-railroad company Walthers — so it’s no surprise that every millimeter of her renovated double-height kitchen, in a 1932 cottage in Ross, California, is as charming and carefully plotted as a train set. “Every area around our farmhouse table has a purpose,” Pickart says. As a parent and frequent party giver, she created “stations” so that nearly every family member can partake in the prep work. In this house, there’s no such thing as too many cooks in the kitchen. “It gets beat up and keeps on ticking,” she says.
