Such a simple and smart detail, this band of clerestory windows. Not only do they mark the transition from wall to ceiling in this casual bathroom, they also provide an escape route for moisture. A small criticism: the spindly legs of the console sink aren't up to the task of supporting the solid feel of the architecture here. I'd have gone with either a wall-hung basin or a contemporary pedestal design.
