...and it's also partly guest editor month. With the editorial big guns on a well-deserved vacation, AT continues its coverage of the sizzling bathroom scene, with help from Design*Sponge's Grace Bonney, Personism's Jen Bekman, and, insofar as he's able, AT's ghost in the machine, Paul McKinley.

Our bathroom competition turns a corner this week now that all the contestants' entries have had their fifteen minutes of fame. As soon as we can sort out the HTML, we'll move on to the next stage, in which AT readers vote on their favorites and choose the first-, second-, and third-place winners. Stay tuned!
