Bathrooms are one of my favorite rooms to decorate. Perhaps it’s because many of them are in classic shades of white. They can be utilitarian and still fabulous. And of course, they should stand up to daily use.
Susan and Greg, whose home I featured in this former post, have such a bathroom. Not only is their master bath beautiful and peaceful, it is functional and a true classic. I’d like to thank them for letting me photograph it to share with you all.
My antique Swedish Gustavian chest found a perfect home in this master bath. The chest provides ample storage while anchoring the pair of open washstands. Mirrors and washstands from Waterworks.
The antique chest is an unexpected complement to this utilitarian space. Antique white ironstone dishes also from my shop.
Slipcovered Ikea chair and antique wood table soften this expansive space.
Carrara marble on shower threshold and the two seats.
Schoolhouse light fixtures, pitched ceiling and subway tiles.
I love the custom tall step-back baseboards.
Hexagonal tiles would have been common in homes of this period. Susan found these wire baskets from R. Hardware.
The built-in linen / medicine closet has upper reeded glass door and glass knobs.
In case you are wondering, the water closet (ahem, toilet :-) is cleverly located behind the shower.
