The cover features a custom tub in Dwell founder Lara Deam’s bathroom, designed by her husband, architect & product designer Christopher Deam. The issue also features a selection of kids' bathroom and outdoor shower ideas, making this a useful resource for any upcoming bathroom renovation.

Check out the slideshow below for a brief preview of the issue.
Mill Valley, California, might not be a hotbed of modernism, but it was here, ten years ago, that Dwell came into the world along with founder Lara Hedberg Deam’s first home— now renovated by her husband, Chris Deam. Chris managed to salvage the tub from the house before the renovation and then clad it and the entire room in a luxurious skin of Carrara marble.
HomeMADE Custom Vanity
When it came to this budget-conscious Brooklyn renovation, "the clients asked that the character of the bathroom feel more furnished than built-in," said Ben Bischoff of the design firm MADE. Thankfully Bischoff and company have a penchant for putting salvaged goods to new use, in particular an old chest that has found new life as a vanity. "Though the detailing and plan of the house is modern," he reported, "the clients brought many cherished furniture pieces with them which added a patina to the house's aesthetic and helped express the life and story of their family."
HomeMADE Custom Vanity
Designer Barbara Hill applied her polished take on minimalism to a traditional 1920s house in Atlanta for a transplanted Houston family. The bathtub retains a bit of that industrial-country charm for which Hill is known, the original windows strike a bold graphic note, and a small Nelson pedestal table perched on the Carrara marble flooring offers a nice mid-century touch.
“I put everything that I’ve always loved into this house,” said interior designer Kathryn Tyler of her home in Falmouth, England. That list includes gray grout (an element that one of her clients rejected) she laid down between a serene grid of white tiles from Johnson tiles, a few fine fixtures from Hansgrohe, and an oak shelf her boyfriend requested.
