Mid-Week Design Inspiration: Antique Metal Tubs

I like the rustic quality of antique metal tubs with their authentic, aged patinas. You have to admit there is something inspiring about old and weathered, metal tubs. If you are not sure, just look at these gorgeous pictures:

I wish I had this outdoor tub and shower! The country setting is the perfect backdrop for this weathered bathtub. Wouldn't this be a very relaxing place to bathe (as long as no critters decided to join you)? (photo from toast.co.uk)


Here is another outdoor galvanized metal bathtub. I think it would be much nicer to soak in this rustic bathtub than a modern, chlorinated hot tub. (photo from http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/)




This bathroom is actually the set of the movie, "The Holiday". I have not seen the movie but I came across this photo on http://www.cotedetexas.blogspot.com/. Isn't this the most charming bathroom? I love the metal tub, antique dresser and stone wall (basically everything about this space)!


Looking at this galvanized bathtub in a screened-in porch transports me to a simpler time. (photo from a New York Times article)


I also adore this well-seasoned, antique wash tub holding flowers. (photo from http://www.wiltsiebridgestore.wordpress.com/)


...and this beautiful, slightly rusty washtub holding white hydrangeas (my favorite) - what a lovely combination! (photo from www.thefrenchapartment.com )
