The First Active House in Russia - built to Passivhaus standards, which means that its capacity for energy efficiency is down to, in part, the way the whole building is situated in relation to sun and wind exposure.
I don't know how practical any of this is (books in close proximity to bathing, bathtub in the middle of the room); but wow,is it beautiful! And the books tucked in like that would be wonderful in a huge, gabled attic. designed by Giopato & Coombes
Hand painted silver and gold-leafed cherry blossom mural by artist Peter Costello. February 2013 issue of House and Home. Just beautiful. I think I might try to make a small metallic gold cherry blossom painting for our bathroom!
