So many considerations go into creating a beautiful bath that is not only a sanctuary but also a reflection of you.
Michael Pierce Architect
Fixtures and faucets, tile and towels all help define the personality of one of the most-used rooms in the house.
Timothy Corrigan Design
But, for adding the special spark of mood-defining impact, adding art is a necessity.
Anne Miller Design
The black and white floors and traditional bathroom vanity in this bath go a long way toward defining this space. Adding the Venetian mirror and staid art adds to the elegant feel.
One Kings Lane
In regard to bathroom art, we love keeping it simple. This stunning black and white Picasso adds whimsical style.
Karyl Pierce Paxton Design
Even more than just what’s hanging on the walls, bath accessories make a bath feel super luxurious.

Phillip Gorrivan Design
We’re quick to jump on board with pretty much anything nature-inspired. This stunning piece looks amazing on the wall — and the clear glass ensures that it fits in with any decor.

Munger Interiors
So… we know we said a second ago that we love simplicity in bathroom art. But when the bathroom vanity, floors and furniture are super clean and sleek, throwing in a show-stopping piece of modern art adds that instant wow factor.

Curtis and Windham Design
Nothing personalizes a space quite like art. What a great way to wake up — or go to sleep — dreaming of exploring the world!

Modern Craft Construction
A stunning piece of contemporary art is a fantastic, whimsical contrast to the more staid elements of a traditional bath. The art also adds so much light and personality.
Urban KaleidoscopeThe best thing about art is that beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. In a space as personal and private as the bathroom, having art that makes you excited to wake up in the morning really is the most important thing! What’s hanging on your bathroom walls? Thanks for making us a part of your day!

In Good Taste:Drummonds

We all know that to-die-for bathrooms sell houses. But we think they’re so much more than that. The bathroom should be a sanctuary, a haven, a place to actually be by yourself for a second!
Of course, we don’t all have the budget for a solid carerra marble bath. (We know… Seriously? Amazing!) But, even if our baths aren’t cavernous and one of a kind, it’s always nice to get a little inspiration for those special touches that make it feel relaxing.
In the drool-worthy bath category, we think Drummonds designs all-stars. That’s why their work is in good taste this Tuesday! 
Tubs come in all shapes and sizes these days, but, for our soaking, there’s nothing like a cast iron tub. This one looks perfect for relaxing in bubbles up to our necks!
We’re fans of the bathroom/sitting room combo. If you have the room, why not? Who wouldn’t want to get out of the tub beside a roaring fire?
This stunning double sink is one of those incredible combinations old and new that add so much character to a home. It’s pretty obvious that all of Drummonds’ products are handmade.
Bathing is great. Bathing with a view is better. Did you see that hardware? We think our hearts just skipped a beat…
Talk about juxtaposition! This combination of rustic beams and upscale finishes is like nothing we’ve ever seen…

And we think it’s fabulous! That marble tub is incredible, but we’re even crazier about that fantastic towel bar. The ladder look is amazing and practical. Who can get by with only one towel?  
What does your dream bath look like?

House Tour: Beaufort Update!

 So, you know we’re dedicating our Wednesdays to house tours. We thought this Wednesday might be a good time to give you a little update on the Beaufort house! If you’re thinking What? This is PROGRESS! check out our before pictures here and here. Obviously, this is only primer on the walls and a couple of spindles have been painted white to test. But it’s amazing how big of a difference just a little white paint can make!
 Our original plan was to rip out this fireplace and start over. As it turns out, it was going to be a major structural deal, so we’re experimenting with other options. It’s amazing what an eyesore it was before and how much better just this little tester paint looks! 
 Dark half bath door primed! 
 The upstairs master bath is painted, and I am obsessed with this color. It’s one of the only times in my life I walked into a room and thought, “Yup. Nailed that paint choice.”

Here’s another view.
 The floors up here were painted brown, so we’re exploring some options. They might possibly be able to be sanded and refinished, but we’re trying a little white paint just in case it doesn’t work. We love it! It’s so fresh. 
 The bathroom has been painted too. And, no, this fabulous chair isn’t staying… We’ll auction it off to the highest bidder 🙂

Untold baths are going to happen here, just admiring the view out the window!
 Little Will’s bathroom tile is finished as well!
 We think the gray grout looks great!
 Laundry room! It’s small for a reason, people.
 The lighting is clearly not finished in Will’s room. Sorry for the horrible pictures.
 We might seal these window frames off and leave them looking rustic. We think it would pair well with the built-in ships beds. This is one of those times, like normal, where we walked in and thought: “We picked that color…”
The blue lines in the hall wall are the site of the future third floor demo, affectionately named the “stairway to heaven.” And, let us tell you, when you get out on that widow’s walk, you feel pretty close to it! We’re hoping to bust that ceiling out this week.
The floors in the kitchen/mudroom are down. We can’t wait to see this place with a pair of chaises!
We’ve come a long way, baby. 
As a reminder, here’s the old kitchen. Ahhh, memories!
The upstairs guest room with shiny, new paint! Is it weird that I miss the pink walls?
Mom and Dad’s bathroom floor is down and the tub and tile — sans grout — are in! 
Shew! We can’t wait to show you even more progress in a week or two when we go back to check on things. 
We’ve still got a ways to go, but it’s safe to say that this project will be finished one day… Thanks for visiting us today. We hope you’re having a wonderful day!

Beautiful Bathroom Showers

Jenny Wolf Interiors

 

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a great day. With Fourth of July right around the corner, it’s time for sandy feel, pool time and plenty of guests. All we know is that our showers are getting ready to work over time!

Patrick Ahearn Architect

 

We do some of our best thinking in the shower. We don’t know if it’s the warm water or the quiet or the lack of multi-tasking but we always get the best ideas in there. But that’s just the beginning. 

Traci Rhoads Interiors

 

The shower is one of those places where function is really important. But when it can be this beautiful too, then the shower can quickly become a favorite spot in the house!  Isn’t this shower door amazing?

A rain shower head is so calming and perfect for refreshing skin after a long day of fun in the sun. It can turn a simple shower into a spa-like experience! And who couldn’t use more of that?

Jeff Herr Photography 

 

 

Handheld shower heads are our new go-to, simply because they make cleaning the shower and bathtub an absolute breeze. With showers getting bigger and tilework more intricate, an easier clean is a must! Nothing makes it easier to reach those far-off shower corners where grime can accumulate.

Bria Hammel Interiors

 

This rustic bathroom ceiling juxtaposes beautifully with the marble tile to create a one-of-a-kind experience that is utterly chic.

From simple tile to luxurious marble, there’s the right shower for any decor and feel. And a garden seat is one of our favorite spots for stacking towels.

We love the chair in here and the extra storage under the sinks and basket for putting spare towels is a bonus! There never seem to be enough towels!

Marble tile in a herringbone pattern makes the shower fun and a little bit different, while a soaking tub is perfect for unwinding after a long day.

We used a simple subway tile in Little Will’s shower with a soft gray grout and love it! The color makes it easier to clean and in an old house it’s simple yet functional. The stool is his new favorite thing. Not only is it useful, but the teak is also beautiful and water resistant, which is a must in a bathroom.

But there’s no reason to stick to just one material. Mixing and matching for a totally custom look is so much fun.
