First, it was slow food, the slow food movement and then slow homes and slow design in general. As slow food gained prominence, so too did the "100 mile diet" and local food, so it makes sense that the local focus would make its way to design as well.
Remodelista shows us a great example of the 100 mile bathroom remodel in San Francisco. Mixing vintage and locally manufactured items into their ideas for modern bathroom design, they've come up with a whole new take on bathroom design ideas. Hop across the jump to see some of their bathroom design photos.
The sink is designed by San Francisco architect Bruce Tomb, who created it for Infinite Fitting.
Sonoma Forge, located in Petaluma, 40 miles north of San Francisco, produces hand-forged faucets, exposed shower systems, and bath accessories. The list goes on, to include everything from a towel rack to a toilet paper holder to the bathroom tile in the top picture, from Heath Ceramics in Sausalito, all created within the specific 100-mile radius. If you're thinking about a green remodel, you could do worse than the 100 mile design diet; find a salvage yard near you and get more inspiration via ::Remodelista
