Beautiful Bathrooms by Ensemble Architecture

Hearth

i did something unusual when i looked through the website of Australian interior design firm Hearth… i saved the pics to my desktop. ever since the advent of Pinterest i hardly ever save stuff to my actual computer anymore. i used to have folders upon folders of ‘inspiration’ lurking around…
