So last week I found this shower fixture from Bagno Sasso. Hilarity ensued. Here's the link to the story. We'll wait while you go read it because today's post will lean on it heavily.
OK, everybody back? Excellent, let's proceed.
Now, I spend a lot of time with my clients talking about how to recreate what they really want for a budget they can really afford. There's an art to finding a good knock off and a lot of times it can be useful to take a step back and think about what it is about the spendy original that's so appealing. A lot of times, it's not so much the object, it's the feeling it invokes. I find that selecting the right knock off is a matter of tuning into that feeling.
So if you have your heart set on that many thousand dollar man in the shower from Bagno Sasso, there's a $28 shower curtain from Urban Outfitters that brings up some of the feeling invoked by that original. Here it is.
Many thanks to the terrific Raina Cox, whose If The Lampshade Fits is a daily read. Make it one of yours too.
