One More Option

~$299 at Vintage Tub and Bath
Height: 36 inches
Width: 26.75 inches
According to the shop, it's based on a 1922 model. The design appeals to me less than the oval sink below, but it's still a pretty sink. The added height would probably be nice. I'm a shorty, but Darwin is about 5'10".
Another factor I thought of last night: the beadboard on the walls isn't the typical vertical bathroom beadboard. It's horizontal. That will affect things visually. Will the vertical lines and curves of the oval sink below look better with the horizontal beadboard than the more horizontal-feeling Kohler sink? Or worse?
And now, the saddest, most thrown-together Photoshopping ever:
(Hey, it's not my fault. My up-to-date version of Photoshop disappeared off my computer, and I had to bring in the oldie from home while I wait for the IT people to fix it.)
And for Gary, I'll say that I will probably buy another pedestal sink for the half bathroom, but I want to choose the right one for the master bath, since that will be the only one used for more than a little hand-washing.
Also, the half bath used to be the butler's pantry, so I'm considering something more pantry-ish. I've heard of copper sinks in butler's pantries, so that might be an option.
