Tiny bathroom design and a contest

A couple of things came through my inbox this week that I wanted to share with you all. First off, some tiny bathroom design help from Irene: "I'm an interior design student that recently discovered your blog and am LOVING IT!!!!! Anyways I was reading your post about the world's smallest bathroom the other day and then it was on my mind all week. I love challenging spaces so i decided to practice sketching and stuff with this space. It was a fun experience and i'd just like to share it with you! Since it was so small i decided to do a minimalist concept while trying to keep the space open. The full length frosted glass windows help bring in alot more natural light and the illusion of space. Also tried to add some storage without obstructing the flow of space. Hope you like it!" First, a reminder of what the bathroom in question looks like:

Irene's plan for this nightmarish bathroom is REALLY smart (and how kind of her!) and I had to share her drawings with you. (Thanks so much Irene! You've got talent so wishing you lots of luck in school!)

I also wanted to mention a huge contest going on at Greentea Design. They recently launched a new blog called The Design Tree and to celebrate they are asking for entrants to write a haiku (a poem that consists of 3 lines: the first line contains 5 syllables, the second line has 7, and the final line has 5 again) or you can simply vote for your favourite haiku, and they are giving away over $10,000 in furniture and cash prizes. !!!!!!!! I'm really stoked about this contest because the kind folks at Greentea have asked me to be one of the judges! So go check out the details here, and in the meantime, here is a peek at the furniture you could win...
