It'll turn up soon too I reckon.

I think Koi fish patterns need a good raptor in it to balance them out.

That pic didn't help much.

I would have papered the pedestal and sink basin to complete the look.

Did you dream of fish for a week after this job?

Can we start another thread? I'm thinking of one titled, "Have you ever wanted to give a client a dumb slap?"

When I read "Can we start another thread?" I thought you were going to suggest a thread on wild design choices.

OK, that would work too.

To be clear, I wasn't criticizing the installation, just the design choice.

One of the things I like about the vast majority of our clients is that we have a solid enough relationship that I can tell them when they are making stupid choices. Not it those words, at least initially. I'll start out diplomatically....

I don't know. I sort of like it. In a Dante's Inferno, claustrophobic sort of way.

Actually in the arena of opinion, I think I decided along time ago to like everything I install. I kid you not I've seen some bold choices.

The only way I know I will never put my foot in my mouth is to love it even before I see it. Then the only challenge is word choice to describe how it makes me feel. I think I use the word fun and phrase that "It makes me smile" a lot.

Would you rather have HUGE Iguanas at the foot of your bed?

(I'm sure Hunter S. Thompson would have felt right at home waking up and seeing these)





Or these looking at you as you pee?

and then of course, we've all seen this one:

The last house that I painted in Braintree had paper with huge hockey players on the wall. I figured it was a Bahsten thing.
