New Trend: Organic Sinks

New Trend: Organic Sinks

We had the privilege and honor of living in the town of San Miguel de Allende and experiencing it's magic. This was 10 years ago. And I can only count backwards that fast because my baby, who was born there, is now 9. 

This was 2007, before the massive market decline in 2008, and everyone was riding high. Real estate was on fire down here as people were trying to capitalize on all the ex-pats and wealthy, artistic types looking for a vacation home in Mexico. An opportunity presented itself to buy a piece of land and build a home from the ground up. So I jumped at it. Here's the project.

This was the guest bathroom in the massive foyer (below). We found this stone which already had the top hollowed out. And we bore holes in it for the plumbing. Fab, right?

But I digress. This post is about organic sinks. So I wanted to start by sharing the organic sinks that my architect, Lis Bisgaard and I found and designed spaces around in early 2008. Were we ahead of our time? Well, at least Lis was. Check her amazingness out here.

This last one just slays me. No words. 

Hope you enjoyed this post. Now go find yourself an organic sink and design your bathroom or kitchen (or outdoor shower) around it!
