I love the store at the museum of Arts and Design (MAD). On Columbus Circle in NYC The store focuses on artists and sells a great collection of jewelry and decorative pieces made directly by the artists. While it may sound expensive, it's a splurge but affordable.

I'm voting weathervane, for no good reason.

FYI, my bro-in-law has a great eye for these things and once sold a chair that he bought for $400 for $1200 in the span of walking from the brim field field to the car. Meanwhile, I'm still stuck with my $400 chair.

I'm not a fan of West Elm style, but something in the retro color says "go for it". (You're lucky it's a hot color -- my parents' house has bright pink!)

1. Keep the tub. Update the fixtures to premium quality (well worth the money, BTW). Add glass doors.
2. Paint the floor with a gloss brown-green epoxy slightly darker than the tub, or replace with ebonized bamboo flooring.
3. Tile tub to ceiling with small (glass?) mosaic white tiles. Bonus points for texture, overall or in bands. Extra points for continuing tile around other walls as a wainscot.
4. Replace vanity top with dark butcher-block style top. Keep the bowl, but update the fixtures a la tub fixtures.
5. Replace toilet with more efficient model. Old toilets are rarely worth the trouble.
6. Lose the mirrors and overhead lighting. Side sconces are much more flattering.

Have fun!
