Tête-à-tête grooming - yes or no?

That's too much togetherness.

Modern Country Lady said...

One word : boarding school.
Rows of kids gargling and brushing their teeth at the same time- and you want to repeat that in your own home ??

.....so..er..no!

Savvy Gab said...

I'm on the same page as the others on this one... that is just plain awkward!

Stand alone bath, yes. Stand alone double vanity face-off, no.

The Buzz said...

Love him but no need to see him floss, brush, gargle and spit!

nkp said...

:-(

ChrisToronto said...

Umm, no.

Petra Voegtle said...

Looks funny - but I fear the floor would be wet all the time - altogether not very practical...

amyoliver said...

No, some things need privacy and space!!

How is your bathroom coming on??

my favorite and my best said...

no. no to the closeness. no to the vessel sinks. no to the jambi head floating mirror...
YESSSSSSSS to the floor to ceiling windows which could only be over looking paris!!!!!

I am guessing this a European design. Thumbs up for original design. A big thumbs down for missing the most important aspect of good design...function.

The sinks are ridiculously close. This surface is barely large enough for one sink. Two equals a lot of water on a wood floor!

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

Oh, I love these posts! This is a no for me - too close for comfort. Next bathroom I am putting our sinks on separate walls!

I wouldn't object to it in a suite in a hotel, but I would throw a tantrum if I had to maneuver around such a contraption at home. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, I sezz.

The Zhush said...

Kinda defeats the whole two sink, two vanity luxury purpose in my book. And that floating mirror...at least in this photo, is headache inducing.

Appletree said...

Is that real? Where is the plumbing? But I do want to look out of that window whilst I bathe...

kristina said...

reminds me of the love toilet from snl.

Sketch42 said...

I dont think its so bad!

Ceci said...

Yes.

Alcira Molina-Ali said...

Ye-No.
I think it's a little close for comfort, though an ingenious and space-saving design.
I sort of need room to work with when I dry my hair, brush teeth or apply war paint.
That said, it just so happens our master bath is large and in charge.
But if the hub and I lived in say, Paris or Cairo, this may have to be an airy option.

An island in the bathroom - I guess there are no original ideas - just recycled ones. BTW, I am with the crowd this week. I really hate this one.

life, in small chunks said...

I really don't care to see the bf brush his teeth...or anything else he does in the bathroom...

Teri said...

No. I can not stand watching anyone brush there teeth, and don't care to see Mark shave.

I always thought I had to have a double sink, and now that we have it we only use one sink. Our grooming routines work so that we are never at the sink at the same time. I guess that comes from all the years we've had tiny old bathrooms.

MyLittleHappyPlace said...

Just what I always wanted - a direct view of my hubster cutting his nose hairs. Pukey.

drollgirl said...

WTF?! i can only imagine how the toilets are situated.

Tim Austen said...

I can see arguments over the angle of the mirror! Perhaps, too cool to be practical.

Savvy Gab said...

Hopefully that mirror doesn't have a blowup side and a normal side similar to the smaller look-alike mirrors because someone would grow a complex!

Eeeek.

Tim Austen - Hello and welcome to this deliciousness!

Copyboy said...

I'm deciding between ornate gator and change pillow. :)

Charlotta Ward said...

Totally! Loving it.

The Down East Dilettante said...

nope. This is where I draw the line on togetherness. I groom alone.

Did I miss any ear hairs?

Jono said...

No. Nononononononono.

It's like the interior decorating God's drunk to much vodka and vomited.

This is the product of interior vomit.

The is just to many ideas that do not correspond with one another.

Brandi said...

Um no, looks too cold. I also don't like the trim around the shower door and where would I set my stuff on that counter?

julietsblog said...

Not a love seat, a love sink.

erin@designcrisis said...

Kristina stole my comment, but this is a big, gross NO.

Raina Cox said...

Jono - Hello and welcome to this deliciousness!

I know it is not very cost efficient or practical, but the house I grew up in had separate his & hers bathrooms and dressing rooms in the master suite. I've always thought it would keep more romance in a marriage to have separate facilities. My parents were married for 50 years, so it worked for them;-)
