“I SPY” Suite of Bath Ideas #1

This year-end, I have created a “suite” of bathroom ideas to share with you!

These ideas come from all my travels near and far, this past year. As you all know, I have a…sort of…fetish about bathroom design. As an interior designer, I find bathrooms the most challenging, given the small space and the all the requirements needed.  Not to mention all the building code issues! The clever part is coming up with the “ah-ha design”- the “wow factor”.

Let’s face it, everyone has to use this room, so it should be in an interesting space – you have a captive audience! These ideas can also be used in other areas of the home, not just the powder room! Let’s go explore…

Always start with an interesting piece of artwork! Nudes in bathrooms – PERFECT!

We will go with the slick and cool, streamline look first.

I love the three patterns of tile and the shift in scale – let’s get a closer look…

Horizontal tiles are HOT right now! The dark matte tile up against the glass mosaic and smooth, creamy marble is so beautiful, right?

Let’s check out a traditional European feel, again, always start with great ART – sure throw a branch in there, why not!?

See the textured venetian plaster on the walls – soft and subtle.

Here the door and vintage mirror set the mood. Old world for sure!

A glass ice bucket for towels and a single flower – simple perfection.

Time for a glass of wine! Cheers!

Be on the scout for “I spy” great bathrooms to be continued…

Have a fabulous weekend!
