We have begun to get submissions for the Contest, but we wanted to prime the pump some more by showing off some stuff we really like in our own house. This is our bathroom in the house we have on Long Island. The photograph is by John Berg, an architect and friend, who took a number of beautiful photographs in Cuba last year with his digital camera. This one is of an empty swimming pool that is shaped like a piano at an abandoned estate on the coast.
Notice particularly how the vibrant blue of the pool makes the room pop and brings out the blue tones in the soft, lavender paint color. We like to do cool colors in bathrooms as it matches the qualities of water. We think this pool picture is perfect here. John does sell his prints (in different sizes) for between $100-$200, and you can reach him at John@bergdesignarchitects.com.
