How the other half lives...

The Swarovski crystal toilet (Jemal Wright Bath Designs)

My Mom used to say that a lot. Anytime she would see extravagance in any form she would say, "That must be how the other half lives!" As a child I'd picture someone living in a mansion, surrounded by modern conveniences that Mom considered "extravagance." She and Daddy lived a typical middle class life in the 50's and 60's, but at that time most families managed with one car, one phone and one bathroom. Not so anymore.

The number of bathrooms in new homes often match the number of bedrooms. It's said that the average human being spends a total of 567 hours of their lifetime on the toilet. I know what you're thinking...who figures these things out? Is it a full time job? Where can I apply?

When we were building 4 years ago I visited home centers, plumbing "specialty" stores and perused home magazines for trends. Our house sits smack dab in the middle of the boondocks so we wanted something that looked old and weathered. We decided on the rubbed bronze for fixtures. They look like an old farmhouse to me, just up my alley! I didn't see these in the home centers while I was searching....

Designer Jemal Wright has presented a bedazzling way of ensuring that every single minute of the 567 hours is remarkable. The ultimate of “bling," these bathroom furnishings bring new clarity to the term...


The World's First Chrome-plated bathroom and spa sets, Jemal Wright creates two lines of fully functional works of art. Chromeozone has a chrome plated porcelain base.

This line can have dyes added to match any color scheme, from gold metallic...

to emerald...

...even Texas Longhorn Orange!

Now, this Brushed Bronze is beautiful...

Love the handle...

Really love the sink!

Now which SoftSoap would look good???


  1. Well, it is so nice to see how the other half lives because I won't be seeing it in my house! Think I'll send this to my husband and see if he faints.

  2. I can only do my business on a white porcelain throne - these others are kind of scary! Do you think the crystals at the top would poke your behind??

    Ha Ha

    Have a GREAT weekend Joycee!

  3. Love your Mean Rooster post.

    Hoity for the toidy ... too much.

  4. The fingerprints would drive me nuts!
    I'm not big on gleamy in the bathroom. Have a great weekend.

  5. LOL What will you come up with next!!!!
    My favorite was the bronze minus all the water spots etc....

    Yeah I used to hear that saying too. How the other half live

  6. OMG, now these are something incredibly gorgeous! Nice to see but not to touch! HA..

  7. I bet those commodes are just as nasty to clean as the plain old white porcelain thrones - - - what do you think????
