Discovered via Design Skool , an appealingly retro Scandi shower from Lundagård, an 1860s timbered house in Finland. Aja and Christian, the owners of Lundagård , disassembled and rebuilt the house fifty miles from the original location and renovated the home themselves. We especially like the minimal and well-considered shower, which features antique fittings and locally sourced materials. For more on the project, go to Design Skool . Above: Christian made the black shower curtain rod from old metal fittings; the ceiling is lined with wood sourced from the surrounding forest, protected with a coat of white linseed-oil paint. The ceramic tiles are from Finnish company Pukkila . Above: Dornbracht's Tara Black Edition Wall-Mounted Shower Mixer with fixed riser and cross handles approximates the fixture used at Lundagård; see the Dornbracht website for dealer information. Above: Curved Shower Rod with Shower Liner and Hooks Set in black is $37.49 from Overstock. Above: Organic Seersucker Shower Curtain ; $130 from Coyuchi. Above: French Enamel Door Sign ; $19 from Souvenirs of Paris. Above: The wall-mounted Franklin Brass Tuscan Ceramics Soap Dish is $8.95 from Amazon. Above: Christian used Vinyl Surfacing from Upofloor for the shower floor, shown here in color 670; contact Upofloor for pricing.
