Although new, this yellow-and-sage-green bath exudes the craftsmanship of a vintage Arts-and-Crafts bath. A furniture-style vanity features classic Shaker-style doors and drawers, while mottled yellow subway tiles lend a handmade presence to vanity, shower, and tub. The durable stone countertop, tub surround, and
floor tiles offer a neutral presence that clears the way for accessorizing in compatible greens or yellows for a new look down the road.
Yellow Old World Bath
Buttery yellow paint adds a warming presence to a vanity designed with intricate Old World Styling. Upper
cabinets reach to the ceiling where they're capped with elegant crown molding. Below each of the two sinks, cabinets feature mirror-image arched doors framed by turned pilasters on blocks. A black-granite countertop with a double-ogee edge adds a dramatic presence, causing white sinks and accessories to pop against its polished black surface.
Warm shades of gold and brown combined with geometric shapes give this bath a clearly contemporary style. Round
mirrors, conical vessel sinks, curved gooseneck faucets, and spherical hardware create a rhythmic flow of related shapes, as do the hard-edged granite countertop, slab-front doors, square sconces, and glass mosaic-tile floor. The zenlike atmosphere calls for white accessories, although stone or wood offer suitable alternatives.
Warm yellow walls partner with cool blue ceramic-tiles and white woodwork in this bath, creating a look as pretty as a summer's day. The deep gold-and-white damask-motif
shower curtain adds a punch of color and pattern to the otherwise restful space. Pink accents enhance the room's pastel presence.
Gold Bath with Asian Accents
Serene and tranquil, this master bath teams pale gold walls with a massive stone countertop and
backsplash swirled with gold. The sleek vanity features slab doors and open shelves of chocolate-brown stained wood. On the tile floor, an Oriental runner ties together all the colors of the room -- including the red lacquer storage boxes -- with its intricate pattern. In a room like this, accessories can pick up additional colors within the rug (blue, for example) and not look out of place.
Gold Bungalow Bath
White beaded-board wainscoting leads your eye into this vintage bungalow bath, complete with the original medicine cabinet. Above the chair rail, deep yellow-gold
walls create a striking contrast; their color is picked up by the multicolor Oriental rug softening the tile floor. A white pedestal sink and Victorian-style faucet create a subtle silhouette against the wainscoting.
Bright & Beautiful
colors of paint divide this traditional master bath into zones: lemon yellow in the grooming zone and lime-sherbet green in the bathing zone. White surfaces -- the vanity, wainscoting, woodwork, and hexagonal-tile floor -- unify the two spaces. Clear-glass handles on the vanity add a touch of sparkle.
Yellow Master Bath
colors, textures and shapes give this master bath a naturally casual personality. One wall features a life-size mural of aspen trees in winter, with a faint haze of golden leaves in the background. Warm yellow paint and two shades of wood accents keep the room from feeling chilly. The sleek vanity countertop is made from neutral recycled glass, which teams well with the marble accessories.
Sunny & Contemporary
Walls of golden-yellow glass mosaic tiles set the stage for this contemporary master bath's glowing ambience. Above the vanity, mosaic tiles wrap around twin
mirrors and yellow walls. Below, the mosaic tile is repeated as a border along the white tile floo. Satiny silvertone light fixtures, faucets, and cabinet hardware add a soft sheen to the room.
Casual and romantic, this master bath combines a white-painted vanity and woodwork with yellow-and-white striped
wallpaper to create a charming setting. Polished nickel faucets and white marble countertops add an elegant counterpoint to curtains below the sinks and a painted "gingham" floor. Simple white accessories and clear glass containers look right at home in a cottage setting and can easily be switched out for pastel blue, green, or pink to create a fresh look.
A Study in Contrasts
A black vanity provides a handsome foundation for this master bath clad in buttermilk-color
walls and a dramatic granite countertop. A wrought-iron bath sconce punctuates the wall with black; its dangling prisms add sparkle. An old-fashioned transom window above the sink offers natural light as part of the lighting mix.
Variations on a Theme
While subtle, this
bathroom offers a sm art,mix of variations. Cheery yellow paint offers a warm glow, and is accented by woodwork painted a slightly darker shade -- which unifies the space while adding dimension. For a bit of drama, the floor is hand-stained with a checkerboard pattern and different stains add character. The black-framed art, which complements the floor, makes a dramatic contrast against yellow walls.
