Funny you should ask. I haven't seen this application before, but I have to say, I kind of like it. In the right environs it could be really interesting. Do you happen to know if it was a-making use of what's already there situation- or if it was created to serve this very purpose?

In our basement we actually have one of those round widgets/ knobs (yes, I think that's the technical term) protruding from one of the walls. I believe it's there to turn off the water in case of emergency. Anyway, it is in one of the main living areas and we weren't going to build a false
wall to contain it since access was necessary. So we just left it and treat it as a hook for the Mister's billiard accoutrements. And I've kinda grown fond of it!

I think it's very creative.

Paul Anater said...

It's a little too Apartment Therapy.

I think it was made to order... no need for all of those knobs... But I'm not a plumber. :)

Under the right conditions, it could be considered whimisical. Not a look for my house, I'd just put a screen in front of it, if I had to live with it. But to each its own, right. I'm just gonna say it... it looks kooky!

I wonder if this is someone's version of the industrial look?

ModFruGal said...

Eh. Not for me...could maybe work in a loft conversion, but even then...it's a little industrial chic goes too close to shabby chic. Throw a shovel or a floral in there and it's over.

Not my thing, but I am sure it is lovely for someone else.

I find it too contrived.

No no and NO.

Keri Batchelder Hoffman said...

Ick. Trying too hard.

Anita Davis said...

meh.

Oh, Readymade... what will your readers think of next? A recyclable bra made of snow cone holders and bungee cord elastics?

Naomi said...

If it was against a brick wall, I might dig the whole industrial look. But against the white wall, not so much, for me.

I would find it cute in the coffee house/cafe bathroom installed on their reclaimed brick walls and concrete floors. but in your house!? NO WAY JOSE.

Who is this Paul guy and why does he suddenly have the best comments?

I totally thought it was from AT until I saw the credit. and I was shocked. This is dumb?

susieq said...

Yes, Paul is the wittiest and wisest.

Paul Anater said...

Gee, thanks! I owe everything I am to Raina.

Lacey said...

Ugh, I am not inspired. I will, however, take that umbrella and graphic scarf.

Cristin said...

damn plumber's wives think they're so clever.

Designers' Brew said...

Karly--me too! I totally thought it was AT until I looked at the credit. And yes, Paul is my new comment hero.
