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.
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 By the 1920's, they were de rigeur, but by the midcentury, they were outdated, replaced with the more efficient built-in tubs of the 60s and 70s.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.
Sherwin-Williams' 2018 Color of the Year Is Finally Here — And It Doesn't Disappoint. Move over, neutrals: Sherwin-Williams just announced its 2018 Color of the Year pick and it's the opposite of muted and subtle. The company says when picking a hue prediction for 2018, it wanted to speak to the public's growing desire for color that's "both accessible and elusive." The results: a deep and moody shade called Oceanside. "People today have a growing sense of adventure, and it is making its way into even the coziest corners of our homes. We are craving things that remind us of bright folklore, like mermaids and expeditions across continents," says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. "Oceanside is the color of wanderlust right in our own homes."
