A Refined Oasis
Is this too good to be true? A spacious, airy bathroom with a large tub, open shower, sitting area with herringbone floor, and a view of the ocean.
A Quiet Respite
A Victorian faucet with cross handles hearkens back to more genteel times when the powder room was actually for powdering your nose. Accessorize with feminine glass bowls, perfume bottles, and sweetly patterned dishes for holding soap.
Fit for a Queen
Create a haven from the pressures of the world with a large tub with plenty of room to surround yourself with the things you love: sweetly scented lavender, luxury soaps, and pretty artwork.
Marble flooring and bath tiles, sun streaming through a large arched window, a soft robe awaiting you at the end of a long soak...what's not to love about this roomy bathroom?
Lucky the woman who has enough space for a beautiful upholstered chair in her bathroom or dressing area. This corner near a bathtub includes a slipcovered chair and small rattan tables.
What makes this bathroom elegant? A luxurious area rug (rather than small, thin bath mats), an upholstered ottoman, a metal shelf display, and marble countertops are some of the classic details.
Curves and Line
Gold makes an elegant statement wherever it's used. This faux gold-leaf wallpaper supports the other decorative choices of mirror, art, faucets, and lighting.
Symmetrically arranged, this bathroom features a curving vanity front. Twin oval sinks are centered under matching rectangular mirrors that have been classically framed in fluted molding. In the tub niche, a triple ivy topiary is an elegant accessory.
Tiled with Style
Tan grasscloth wallpaper, a bamboo-framed mirror, as well as palm and leopard motifs, recall British Colonial style. Mahogany woods and wide crown moldings add to the elegant effect.
Elegance is found in a beautiful arch over the tub, a restrained tan-and-white color scheme, and a Greek key design on the tiled floor.
Though it's a small room, the furnishings in this bath were selected with an eye for elegance. An exquisite Venetian-style mirror, classic fluted pedestal sink, tile molding, and artistic wallpaper all lend an air of sophistication to the space.
Another classic wallpaper design in unusual colors serves as the primary decoration in this bath. White marble flooring and stunning silver-leaf chair are two of the highbrow additions to the room.
Conversation-starter details abound in this tiny powder room. Oversize wooden corbels act as supports for a large wall-mounted sink with a bowed front edge. Walnut wood tones are repeated on the upholstered bench and framed mirror. Gold-framed oil paintings complete the elegant accessories.
An elegant look can often be achieved by using restraint. Here, all-white cabinets gain only a hint of color with bronze hardware and a dark brown marble countertop. White mosaic floor tile has been embellished with a border in brown.
Get a more elegant look in a bath by installing classically designed shelving and cabinetry. Moldings and foot details, as well as uncluttered shelf displays, are details that enhance the look and feel of quality.
Botanical prints, antique furnishings, floral fabrics, fresh plants, and golden faucets are the basis of this bath's English country style. Overhead an arched window and tub surround add a feminine touch.
Here's a new bathroom with reproduction fixtures, offering modern-day convenience with old-world style. A vintage mirror and sconces offer appealing patina and texture while the floral mosaic tile floor adds a bit of color to the space.
