Sarah Trotter, principal of Melbourne interior architecture firm  Hearth , is the mastermind behind her team's artful conversion of an old garage into a studio apartment —take a tour of the project on Gardenista. We particularly like the brick-walled, tropical bathroom, which embraces the building's past and present. Here's how to get the look. Photography by  Lauren Bamford .   Above: Hearth paired the weathered brick wall with a romantic clawfoot tub (sourced secondhand and painted green) and a large-leafed Monstera deliciosa that together lend the space a tropical vibe.   Above: Sink and storage are tidily combined in a built-in wooden vanity that serves as a room divider: tub on one side, toilet on the other. The large round mirror visually enlarges the spaces. Wooden pegs are used throughout the room for hanging towels.  Above: The vanity extends to the ceiling beams and offers cabinets as well as shelving.  Above: A white stool adds extra seating (plus a way to reach high storage). Note the leather pull —and learn how to make your own here .  Key Elements    Above: UK bathroom fittings specialists Drummonds makes cast-iron tubs by hand using traditional techniques. They can be ordered in four finishes: raw, primed, polished, or painted with a choice of Sophie Conran paint colors; prices for the Spey Tub start at £2,825 ($4,424). For more ideas, see  10 Easy Pieces: Classic Freestanding Bathtubs .    Above: Turn the tub into a shower using a ceiling-mounted  Oval Shower Curtain Ring , available in three finishes and eight sizes starting at $249.95 from Signature Hardware.    Above: The Cifial Asbury Double Handle 8-Inch Rain Shower Head and Hand Shower in nickel finish is $2,080.65 from Build.      Above: The Rondo Pendant by Eglo is made of frosted opal glass; $96 from Lumens.   Above: Ikea's round stainless-steel  Grundtal Mirror  measures 23 5/8 inches in diameter; $39.99.   Above: A  White Canvas Shower Curtain  is $44.95 from Crate and Barrel.    Above: This reclaimed oak  Tub Caddy  comes in a natural and an ebonized finish; $145 from Peg and Awl.
