bathroom details

modern-bathrooms-la-la-lovely

a beautiful bathroom  has to be one of favorite things  (see what i mean).  i’m guessing it’s one of your favorites, too.  i like to look at bathrooms like a little escape.  bathrooms are basically your very own personal spa and a place to retreat to in your home.  retreat, rest and rejuvenate.  hopefully your retreat inclues taking a long relaxing bath.  because, after all, that always feels like a luxury (especially if you are a mom to young children).

while luxury comes to mind, when i think of decorating or updating a bathroom, i don’t think that means that your design style has to be over the top.  in fact, my favorite look combines a mix of modern and rustic with maybe just a hint of vintage or glamour.  nothing too fussy but always memorable.

a total bathroom makeover may not always an option, but making small changes works for most.  one way i love to make small updates for big impact is with bathroom accessories, (as seen in the above image).  often it is the little details that make a big impact.  details like pretty hooks, baskets, soap dispensers, candles, and shelves can make all the difference. keep an eye out for finishes and accessories that really contrast the other design elements in the room.

however, if you find yourself at a place where you can make more substantial updates, then likely a tub or vanity may be on your agenda.  personally, i’m always stuck on the idea of a vintage tub.  however, when it comes to sinks i’m pretty smitten and sold on the look of modern bathroom vanities.  pairing a  modern vanity with a vintage claw foot tub  is my favorite combination at the moment.  and, if you don’t dream of claw foot tubs, like i do, then maybe mixing in a vintage mirror or chandelier may suit your taste.

no matter what your personal bathroom style is or how much (or little) you are able to update, the possibilities and style combinations are endless.

if you could make a big change to your bathroom what would you do?line
