Re: La Tortuga...updated 08-31-14

I LOVE,LOVE, LOVE the colors of "La Tortuga" The interior of "The Breeze" is Aqua, lime green, battleship grey & dark brown" (would post pictures if I can ever figure it out) Friends call it"Miami Vice---hippyfied" and I would love her to look like "The Turtle" on the outside.

Hey Bansil, the hide-a-toilet shelf and drape is a very clever idea and a great use of space. Who says there have to be walls for a bathroom? You've got me thinking about how one might design a complete bathroom around a multi-use area without permanent walls. Jack
