How a Shower Drain can make the World a better place

So, we know what you’re thinking. How the heck can a shower drain make the world a better place? Most people barely even know what their shower drain looks like let alone think about them in the context of making the world a better place. Well, maybe shower drains won’t change the entire world but they just might change “your world” and make it a better place. Inspiration can strike at any moment and sometimes in the most random of places. According to Business Insider and Mitch Ditkoff, President of Idea Champions, you get your best ideas in the shower.

 

You can also gain great inspiration from looking at a beautifully crafted decorative Shower Drain as well. There’s just something about looking down at something that someone else created and asking yourself questions like:

How did they create that?
What was their inspiration for that design
What Materials did they use?
How long did it take them to figure out their process?

and so on… There’s a myriad of questions that you might ask yourself so we won’t list them all. But, you get the point.

Another reason shower drains make the World a better place is that they can save your marriage. Wait, first we tell you Shower Drains can save the World, now this?!  How can shower drains save your marriage? Losing your wedding ring down the drain, having to spend extra money on a plumber to recover,  or your ring or buying a new ring is not a good way to build a lasting partnership with your spouse.

Shower drains save your big ticket items from being lost. If you want any additional protection, you can always put a Hair Catcher under the drain cover. Hair Catchers are designed for ultimate protection against clogging up your drains so we know that they’ll work for catching jewelry.

Shower drains like any household item can be boring if you let them, but with just a little bit of imagination and innovation they can be made into something beautiful, functional and inspirational.

Making Waves

If you’ve been keeping up with our blogs, and I know you have because you’re awesome, you know that our Oceanus Series is one of our most popular collections! Everyone loves the beach, and anything beach related. The seaside is one of the most relaxing places one can imagine. The smell of salt, the warm breeze, and my favorite, the waves crashing lightly against the coast. You can hear it right? I know i can!

Waves are beautiful, terrifying and majestic. They can bring a sense of serenity or utter chaos. Sometimes my goal is to become a human embodiment of a wave….but that’s just me. While I spend my time figuring out how to be the wave I deserve to be, let’s talk about you and your future wave themed home. All waves are beautiful, but I am absolutely obsessed with traditional Japanese nami wave art. We all know the ones.

A lot of interior designers, fashion designers and artists are inspired by the beautiful works of traditional Japanese artists and for good reason! The serene-ness of the soft color palettes in contrast of harsh lines are one thing that makes these paintings so memorable. I’m seeing a lot of fashion inspired by Nami waves. Whether abstract or literal.

Alena Akhmadullina Russia Spring 2016 takes a literal adaptation of Nami waves, transforming models into walking tsunami paintings. So beautifully done.

While these are gorgeous, fashion isn’t the only avenue that implements waves. Home decor can easily take a seaside twist. Maybe you aren’t ambitious enough to go all out like some of these creative sea lovers.

Nature Walk

If you’re anything like me, you know there’s nothing more relaxing than a calming walk through nature…Maybe I’m lying, I’m not exactly the woodsy type.

Check out some of these beautiful nature inspired bathrooms and kitchens that even makes a city-girl like me want to pack up my bags and travel to the rain forest.
