(Just in case you missed this post…There seemed to be a glitch in the system…) If you did already read…thank you!
My first exposure to the reemergence of the sink skirt came while researching ideas for our kitchen remodel. I bought the coffee table book, Patina Farm showcasing the architecture and design of Steve and Brooke Giannetti.
From their website…
“Patina Farm – Ojai CA…Inspired by European country homes, the design of Patina Farm combines Mediterranean architecture with a modern sensibility of space.
Antique building materials, including antique French terra cotta roof tiles and vintage barn beams, are juxtaposed with more contemporary details such as sheets of glass and steel windows. ”
I loved the wood floors in their home and used similar French Oak wide plank floors in our kitchen and throughout the house. Even though we took a different direction in our kitchen design choosing countertops with the feeling of the ocean waves and oyster shells, I remembered their use of natural linen sink skirt.
Old fashioned, yet fresh…an old design trick used in modern ways.
I began watching for images of skirt sinks and found they were all over Instagram and Pinterest…
Thought you would enjoy seeing the many combinations, colorations and fabric patterns…Most photos from Instagram and Pinterest.

Someone tell me if this is an old brick oven/fireplace with a sink and plumbing added!

And the skirts are not limited to just the kitchen and bathroom…in this study, studio the Belgian linen under the counter skirt adds texture. Steve and Brooke Giannetti.
And after this post was published we had dinner at Canyon Kitchen in Lonesome Valley, Cashiers, NC.
A trip to the bathroom…voila a SKIRTED SINK!
