One of my favorite rooms in a house is a luxurious bathroom or powder room. It is one of those rooms where you can let go of some of your design inhibitions and pursue something a little more creative or daring then you may be willing to risk in other parts of your home. Because of their (typically) small size, it is also an easy room to renovate in order to give your entire house a face life.
I absolutely LOVE the round bath tub and gold fixtures in this design by David Collins.
This one by Frank Shirley looks so serene. It is a relatively simple design, but it is executed so perfectly. The tile design on the floor is totally eye-catching without being distracting.
I saw this one in a home designed by John Nash. It’s from a terraced mansion in the UK.
A few from Boston designer, Leslie Fine:
This contemporary bathroom is by designer Rebecca Ascher for a Nantucket home. The beautiful round bathtub is made of volcanic limestone and resin by Victoria + Albert.
I could write an entire anthology about Ralph Lauren‘s homes, but here is a glimpse into the bathroom of his Manhattan apartment. I love the white lacquered cabinetry and the view of Central Park reservoir.
…And a few more faves for good measure
Ceilings are often neglected when designing a home, but they are one aspect of an interior space that can really pack a major punch. I love these unique ceiling designs.
I love coffered ceilings and trimwork detail – so regal and timeless
These patterns are gorg. I love the look of a wallpapered ceiling in a bathroom.
Natural wood is great for a vacation home
…especially when it is in an interior like this. The ceiling in the room of this ski house is amazing, but the entire design is so chic – the wall of windows, the fireplace, the white furnishing – it is my dream ski “cabin.”
A finished wood ceiling is just as special, but can create a more polished look
Beams on a ceiling make the space appear cozy
This orange high-gloss ceiling in designer Jefferey Bilhuber’s Manhattan apartment is definitely eye-catching
My current design obsession is anything transitional, feminine and from the grey or neutral color palette. I love the delicate and ethereal quality of these interiors because they look almost as light as air, but still have a substantial quality to them. Plus neutrals keep everything light, fresh and clean. By matching the color of the floor-wall-ceiling, you can make any space look much bigger.
I also love, love, love this living room.
