Need specific inspiration images for shabby chic bathroom.

I need inspiration for an impending South Florida master bathroom remodel. I like a shabby chic style, and I understand the principles, but desperately need specific images for a bathroom that totals 45 sq feet outside of the shower stall, and probably more like 30-35 sq feet once you subtract the water closet.

I think i should fire my contractor, but don't know how to protect myself.

I want to fire my contractor, who is doing a sloppy and unsatisfactory job of renovating my bathroom. I've never been a situation like this before (of hiring someone to do work on my home, and also of firing somebody) and could use some advice from people who have been through this process on whether or not i should fire him, and if i should, how to go about it with minimal collateral damage.

If it's yellow, let it mellow into a hard sandy crust at the bottom of the toilet.

My roommate and I long ago decided that we would not flush pee. Save water and all. The only problem is this: apparently if you let urine sit in the toilet, it turns into a really attractive layer of brown sediment, in a spot that is very difficult to clean with a toilet brush . . . right up to the front of the little recess on the bottom, and right in the back of it as well. Is there anything we can add to the reservoir to keep this from happening? [more inside]

Bathroom GFCI wiring

Our bathroom has a GFCI combo switch/socket where the switch is hooked up to the bathroom fan/light. It's wired downstream of another switch controlling the vanity fixture, and set up so that the socket is only hot when the switch is on. This makes it suboptimal for, say, charging an electric razor or toothbrush overnight, because that means leaving the fan on. What's the best way to change this? [more inside]

Help with bathroom design concepts

We're re-doing our old (master) bathroom. It's small-ish, not that that's here nor there.
