My soaker tub is set up identically to this. Instead of my wrought iron shelf, I would love to do a built in. I've also been torn with beadboard vs. tile for the front of the tub. Turns out I love the beadboard and its cheaper!
White cabinets honed slate counter tops, and black handles. Love the slate counter, cabinet style with lots of pull-out drawers, and wood floors! Per This Old House: Slate is so dense that sealing isn't required. Buff out scratches with an abrasive pad.
this is another idea I saw in that client's house. Useful for stuff besides babies, of course. They don't want to stay all day in those little baskets anyway. Sweet idea for baby organization in a closet. You could even use it as a changing station.
