Growing up, I shared one with my brother ( a great way to get your daughters used to the idea of co-habitating with a man ) in college, with 200 other girls ( and we had to yell 'flushing' if someone was simultaneously taking a shower )
Through the years of owning 5 houses I've had, among bland and boring, a dinky Water Closet, housing just the 'loo', the beloved old library in a turret that had been turned into a full bath, by the previous owner (this one I loved and felt like a princess when I got ready to go out) , the weird, too big and very ugly, remodeled bath that I'm in now, along with two smaller full baths, that are tiled with unforunate cheap tile with old shower stalls.
They need an overhaul. All 3 of them. But for now, I'm going to have to stick with paint, paper and accessories to make them fresh. Which got me to searching for images of bathrooms that have been made charming with a little color, textile and ingenuity.......
I kinda like the idea of creating an art gallery in the toidy. (check out that awesome tile, above )
and Ruthie Sommer's just goes ahead and creates a scrapbook in hers.
Wondering what to do with that 'Natural Curiosity Book' you bought 3 years ago and are done having to see it on your coffee table? Check out Steven Gambrel's solution.....
These look like linoleum to me, but that would be a great painted floor idea.
More stripes. This way and That way.
cool. A black bathroom? give me a break. It's so fabulous ( I believe this belongs to @simplyseleta )
UH. SO, so lovely. All elegant and ghosty.
Phillip Jeffries colored grass cloths.
Kate and Andy Spade's adorably smart and chic potty, with Scalamandre's Zebra wallcovering in green. There's that back and white stripe again. hmmmm ....
Don't hold your breathe ( no pun intended ). I need to take down the Imperial Trellis, replace it and recover 3 chairs before I get to this project. Sigh. The cobbler has no shoes. Nor time.
