Ok…Would anyone else…

…Fall right into that tub

as they were searching for the light so they could pee at 4 am?

bb

…And would any of your neighbors,

Heck even your family members particularly the teen kind

take issue with this?

…Juuust wonderin’

You are too funny! The first pic wouldn't work in my home, I'm far too clumsy to survive that tub.

I think if I fell into that first tub, I wouldn't mind so much...

The Frog Queen said...

I see myself falling gracefully into the first tub, happy and content. Only to wake up from my dream back into reality that shows me falling into that tub and breaking my neck.

I am only graceful in my dreams.

Both of them are lovely ideas though! Thanks for sharing.

Cheers!

maybe the toilet doubles as the diving board ;-)

Mrs. Limestone said...

If I lived there, I would have broken my behind at least 5 times already. I'd never get used to the hole in the floor.

PS: Im guessing this tub has some kind of cover so its all flat floor when not in use. I've seen that in Europe but not so much here in the US.

Melissa said...

I'd be more worried about how many men might decide that first tub is a better spot than the toilet!

Maya said...

You are SO funny! It's true..., I'm still laughing, because I'm actually seeing someone stepping right into it in the dark... Then, in a bathroom setting, I really want to be higher up, not down on floor level while soaking.

Farmgirl Paints said...

I would definitely kill myself in that first picture! I would love the outside shower/tub. But only if I knew no one could see me:o

Laura Trevey said...

I would love to have that beautiful bowl sink!! Gorgeous ~~

Deborah said...

I would definitely fall in that tub in the dark. Vanessa of a Fanciful Twist actually has a tub in her Gypsy Garden. I'm thinking she would love the paint on this one.

Tara Dillard said...

My ankle broke simply looking at the first pic.

Then, the 2nd pic popped my balloon. The claw foot tub in my garden is white with bits of rust. Not fabulously painted.

Pouting, now, I am.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

Pam Kersting said...

OOOOOOOO, that first pic is indeed very dangerous. I would fall and break my neck! Second one is not so bad. Just imagine, bathing out of doors. I kinda like the thought of it! ;-)

Chris said...

Uhhh...yes and yes. Love the idea of both, thank you very much!

katiedid said...

Haha! Too funny! I keep thinking the dogs might use it as their dog bowl.

Kinda like the second, providing ther was "property" between you and the neighbors!

I love that first bathroom - that's a super cool tub. And the second one would be cool at some kind of cabin in the woods where there were no other humans for miles. Although, it seems easier to bathe with the risk of onlookers than to use the potty with others watching. Just sayin'.

Katrina Chambers said...

Hahaha...good post!

Kathy said...

Gorgeous, but oh so dangerous. Taking a bath outside? Not this girl!

Drawn to The Sea said...

Ha! Well now, the first one, definitely an accident waiting for me. The second one has my name all over it... I could be discreet in the wee hours, a little candlelight :-)

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

Ha. This cracked me up. Surely there's some sort of cover for that tub in the floor--it would certainly be a liability in my household in the middle of the night otherwise!

Atticmag said...

Yes I would step right in :D

The blue tub would be super as a planter dontcha think? Jane T.

Love the Decor! said...

First tub is way cool.

Eloise said...

Yikes! I'm sure I could find a way to fall into that tub even with the lights on! It would definitely be a problem in the middle of the night.

The second picture reminds me of the old TV show Petticoat Junction for some reason.

:)

Erin said...

Ha ha! So true, and so funny! I sure do love the way they both look though!

black eyed susans kitchen said...

Funny, maybe, but (and this is my most embarrassing moment) once, when I was at a yardsale, I was walking across a lawn toward a back porch where they were selling vintage wicker. Looking straight ahead, I fell right into their inground pool...so I don't think that bathtub would work for me :)

Ginny said...

Could possibly handle the outdoor tub, but the first dunk . . . I'd be breaking out the concrete mixer!

J - Pacha Mama said...

Pic #1: Am WAY too neurotic to have an in-floor sunken tub. I wudnt enjoy soaking b/c i'd be too busy glaring at my tile groutlines and eyeing the cat hair tumbleweeds...ick! Plus, how do u clean that tub w/o breaking yer back?!
Pic #2: No complaints there as i spend a lot of time soaking in an outdoor tub (a hot tub that is!).

DesignTies said...

YES, I would very easily fall into that tub -- and it wouldn't have to be 4:00AM, I'd be quite capable of managing to fall into it in broad daylight!!

And personally, I'm not really into turning my bath into a spectator sport ;-)

Dagny @ Beautiful Living said...

LOL!! That tub can do some serious damage! My entire family would probably fall into that bathtub - frequently! :D Haha... :)

Mon said...

That first one would definitely be a hazard for me, being cumsy like that and all.... but that second is a dream, to heck with family...

simpledaisy said...

Oh...I love the starfish tub!! And the fact that it's outside....Well that would just rock!

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

I actually knew someone who had a tub, like the one in the top photo!

I loved the Beach Combing post!! Beautiful!

tincupchalice said...

HAHA. That's fantastic! I don't like the sunken tubs ... not at all. The outdoor one I could definitely get in to but in Florida, think about all the humidity ... no thanks! Have a great weekend!

Black Zebra said...

Hi-hi-hi! You KILL Me!!!!!. Yes, I have to say the first tub left me a little confused too..I mean how would one get to that lovely chair thats on- wait-is that a balcony?!?! Wrong,Wrong,Wrong!

Stereos and Souffles said...

That sunkin tub is an accident waiting to happen. I'm thinking you only bring someone there that you don't like.

Lauren said...

hahahahah YES!!! (although i'd love that outisde tub for me!!!)

LIBERTY POST EDITOR said...

That is treacherous looking! Oy

Karen Deborah said...

Girl I would KILL myself with a tub situation like that! DANGER DANGER WILL ROBINSON!!! Totally lost in space. Who designed that? hopefull it is deep enough that if you fall in you only get wet and not injured.

Second picture please. No more broken bones for me.

Karen Deborah said...

ps only the young can fall and not mind! they are still pliable.

Karen Deborah said...

pps, I could get butt nekkid in my yard in a tub that cool no problem. I am shameless. Just think how fine it would be to fill it too full and let it splash on the ground and not make a mess! Yes, I'd love one!!

Maria Killam said...

That truly is a fabulous outdoor bathroom! Wow, where on earth do you find such fabulous images? Loved it thanks!

The Things We Carried said...

I would, I am afraid!

Visual Vamp said...

Love the outdoor tub!
Hate the indoor one.
Vessel sinks are so over and out!
xo xo

Ivy Lane said...

LOL!!! So funny!!!!

Have a Great Weekend! :)

LuLo Designs/Blue Eyed Tango said...

So true on the first tub....maybe when I was younger I could appreciate it more. I have a tub like the second but not outdoors!! Hmmm, maybe it's time for a metamorphosis!

Kath' said...

You are so funny. I would kill myself with the first one in the floor. Or my husband would fall in and then he would kill me.
Loved your site. Come join me at the beginning of Sept. For a blog party at my site at www.lilbitoldlilbitnew.com

Tamara Jansen said...

ABSOLUTELY.....on both accounts :)

C said...

BTW i LOVE the pictures you have on here, they take me away to a daydreamer's delight.... since i am stuck in the middle of these here united of states [nebraska].
so thank you thank you....

I could do the outdoorsy tub, it is so very Byron Bay and hedonistic although a little out there.

And yup I would be the girl who would fall in the whole in the floor in the middle of the night. Nice look though!

Blue Muse said...

You crack me UP, Linda. I am such a klutz -- that first tub would be the literal death of me in the middle of the night - heck, in the broad daylight, too.
But I have to say that I love the porch tub. I would apt for some curtains, however. I guess I'm a prude. haha.

I have an outdoor tub/shower - love it - my kids are all out of the house - and I don't have any neighbors close by. Everyone should have one. That tub in the floor - no thanks - looks like an accident waiting to happen!

CAC muffin said...

beautiful yes
practical not so much

Suzann @ The Olive Cottage said...

Interesting...
Thanks for bringing a smile to my face this evening

I love your blog so much especially since I live in Florida, too.
I am north of the Palm Beach County line in Martin County.
Your photos are fabulous!

i love outdoor showers (and i'm a teen)... great way to get the sand off after a long day on the beach without bringing it inside

Renae said...
