Bathroom design ideas

21 Feb

I don’t know what it is but the one room in the house that I don’t get very excited about designing is the bathroom.  I’m just not that motivated to think about it. So, I did a trawl and tried to “collect” the images that had the most visceral appeal — without really over-thinking it — just going for my first-blush reaction.  Here’s what I think are the recurring elements in the ones I picked:  I like bathroom “furniture” rather than that built-in look.  I seem to like a simple color palette.  I like a more vintage / timeless  look rather than modern (and I know the photo with the glass shower below is a contradiction to that but I selected it because I like the simplicity of the shower design and the wall inset for shampoos, etc.).

Because I’m having a hard time mustering up enthusiasm for this room, please send me a pic or a link of your favorite bathroom for more inspiration!
