Private things happen in the bathroom, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be fabulous/fun/or luxurious. We’ve all seen the perfect bathrooms with the huge tub and the marble subway tile with the huge artwork hanging below the crystal chandelier, and we can all dream and think “one day”. But let’s be serious, what are the chances we’re ever going to have a bathroom that we could not only fit furniture in, but be able to lay on the floor with our hands stretched above our heads and our toes pointed and not be able to touch either wall. But who’s to say we shouldn’t dream for just that…and these:
I’m dead. I cannot believe how stunning this is. To soak in that egg tub with the floral mosaics to my right and that window in front of me would cause me to become a wrinkly raisin.
How spot on was my luxury bathroom description? This is probably my dream bathroom. I love marble tiles as much as the next gal, but good-ness. This masculine-rustic yet dignified washroom is somewhere I wouldn’t mind sittin’.
Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Why is that chair there? Who cares. That mirror makes everything ok.
The above are “luxury” without being LUXURY. They are the bathrooms of people with taste and sophistication (even when they’re shaving their legs) This is LUXURY:
Beautiful? Abso-freakin-lutely. Obtainable? Errr. Personal? No.
But can we just be fun please? As a late twenty-something forever student, I need to make the best of my non-marbled, non-chendeliered bathroom. So I hit up good ol’ Pinterest:
I don’t have that awesome sink, but look at the wall color, remember it. The white tiles, DOABLE. Shower curtain, OBTAINABLE.
This bathroom image was the beginning of the inspirational images for my washroom. What’s awesome about this bathroom? Um, the prints! So EASY!
K, ready? READY? What do you get when you combine the two bathrooms above, less money, questionable floors, and meh counters?
So I need to 1) change the hardware and 2) change that counter. The bathroom otherwise is one of the only bathrooms that wasn’t horrifying when we were house hunting. It was originally a pale mauve color, ick. We really went for it with Benjamin Moore Habanero. Part of me wishes I went with a mint color but, it’s fun. It’s right at the top of our stairs so it’s a pop. It’s somewhat problematic when I’m trying to apply makeup though, but we all face life challenges.
Here’s some simple pointers to remember when dealing with bathrooms. 1) white tile never goes out of style, it’s not trendy, it’s clean, it’s classic. 2) white towels really spruce up the joint. 3) don’t take bathrooms too seriously. I mean where else could I put that “Poop or get off the Pot” print?
Any other fun and cheap bathroom pointers for the non millionaires out there?
