God, I have had SUCH uglier bathrooms. Simultaneously uglier and smaller, in fact.

These are beautiful, but I can't imagine installing a system that makes it impossible for the child to reach the books herself. Making books inaccessible sort of defeats the purpose of all the book love that these designs suggest.

Oh, and in my old place, I often send that I would love to have a dishwasher even if it didn't work, as just having a box in which to store dirty dishes would have been a major improvement in my quality of life.....

As someone who just moved to a home with a dishwasher after an entire adult life without one, her suggestion that I get rid of it made me really irrationally angry; suddenly I couldn't listen anymore. It has made such a huge difference in our life, in the cleanliness of our kitchen, in our willingness to cook at home, etc., etc. I can't stop feeling personally attacked by the notion that I would get rid of it. My last apartment had a minuscule kitchen with a single bowl sink and garbage under the sink--and all those things were so bad! Shrink the refrigerator, fine, but don't do the rest! (And we kept the water running constantly to do the dishes too, which can't be ecologically sound either.)
