Located in Dubrobin, Ontario, Canada on the shores of Ottawa River, project architect Samantha Schneider of Christopher Simmonds Architect Inc. designed this riverside home. Soapstone can add a great atmosphere into the kitchen. I love the palette colors white, metal and soapstone. So simple and harmonic.
This post goes to any soapstone addicted ( like me i think ). I found this house built with an incredible stone wall. Using my imagination and of course photoshop, I added soapstone on the wall and the result is beautifull.
Sometimes when you are in doubt about where or when you could use soapstone, you take a chance to do a design mistake. You already heard that old sentence : Less is more. So, this applies over here.
If you have a small bathroom or you cant aford a soapstone bathtub , you may like this tip. Take only a small soapstobe slab and use as bathtub deck/platoform. This bathroom layout will increase the white color from any detail, like this amazing acrilic bathtub from Calyx, and will put your bath in another style level. I love it.
After two months off, I’m back. I went to Portugal to visit a friend and relax a little bit.
