For some reason, whenever the weather is really cold and wet, I think of this image of our project #EATelmandwillowhouse , perhaps it’s the warmth and intimacy, and the steamy hot water that conjure up the feeling of a sanctuary, of privacy where one evaporates into the ritual of cleaning.
This might sounds kitsch, in designing this bathroom, I have the classical elements in mind - whether they are from ancient Greek, Chinese, Babylonian, Japanese, Indian or the Alchemist - Wood (mù) 🌲, Fire (huǒ) 🔥, Earth (tǔ) ⏳, Metal (jīn) 🔗, and Water (shuǐ) 💧, which were understood as different types of energy in a state of constant interaction and flux with one another, and how they related to observable phenomena.
How many elements can you find here? 😉
