"small space big style" showhouse inspiration (and some small space tricks)

CA home + design recently interviewed me for their site about the design inspiration behind my showhouse bath, so please click over to read: "Meet the Designer: LA's Christian May on the Small Space Big Style Showhouse".
 

and before you click to their site and see my elevation of the room (and some small space tips), here's some images that inspired me...
andree putnam's iconic bath for morgans hotel. sourced here.

michele de lucchi's 1981 "kristall" table, sourced here.

collection of ettore sottass vases for bistossi, sourced here.

 and, yes, i admit to humming this cheese fest of a song during the bath's conception...
