So, going to the US only served to further frustrate me, but also provided me with endless photos over which to drool and pine. My favourite store without peer was Waterworks, both the stores in NY and LA were amazing and I spent hours in there touching, sighing and gazing. The staff all thought I was a little strange, particularly when I told one breathlessly that she was so lucky to work there. She just looked at me as though I was nuts. But being surrounded by all that bathroom beauty must be so wonderful. I was hoping to take home at least a nice polished nickel toilet roll holder or a hook as a souvenir, but for $400+ even that was out of the question. So all I could afford was a little cake of soap in a heavenly pale aqua and a glass bottle for liquid soap. Ann Sacks had a store across the road from Waterworks and the stuff in there was so exquisite, I didn't want to leave.
So get comfy, this could take a while......and it should come with a health warning for anyone with a weak heart for gorgeous to die for bathroomware.
Prepare to be dazzled!
