The best source for this sort of thing is grandbrass.com. They have a stunning selection of vintage, modern, and utilitarian solutions. They have been in business since 1913, they know just about everything, they answer email and the telephone. They even sell true vintage parts, not just reproduction parts. They will buy parts from you too if you have what they need.

Unless you find a unique sink that will allow the faucet to be out of the way, do not put the sink there. I would try for under counter refrigerator/freezer drawers. Kitchenaid and Subzero make them here in the US and they are super expensive. I understand they are affordable in Europe. This will allow you to move the fridge/freezer under the window, and shift the sink to the other wall. Run backsplash or tile of your choice on either side of the window and love it!

Leahman's has several manual washers that are nicer than this. They have groovy retro ones that are furniture, and they have this compact one I have been eyeing for hand washing: http://www.lehmans.com/store/Natural_Goods___Cleaning_and_Laundry___Pressure_Handwasher___23305?Args=

I don't think it would save that much money. It is mostly about doing things with your hands, and being independent. It is nice do something simple - "chop wood, carry water", and to have alternatives.

Pure linen sheets and 100% wool blankets. I am amazed by how much the quality of your sleep improves when you switch from cotton to linen sheets, and from a down comforter to a wool blanket. Linen and wool are both natural temperature and moisture regulators.

I have a deer skull, a driftwood mobile and mounted butterflies in frames in my bathroom. It looks amazing.

This fan is very handsome, and available. Wood and metal, mid century modern feel.
