It's All In The Details: Bathroom Edition

Hello! When I reviewed the images I have been filing under "in the details" I realized that they were almost all of little details in bathrooms so I decided to dedicate this post exclusively to bathroom details. Attention to detail is often the key to elevating a design and taking it from merely attractive to totally awesome (dude).

The first three bathrooms have ledges that were incorporated into the rooms that most likely stemmed from a way to hide mechanicals or perhaps they are intentional for dimension and depth in the room. You do not know for sure, nor does it matter because they all elevate the space and look perfect in the end.

This window ledge with the board and batten wainscoting below is charming.

This ledge that begins above the sink and steps down to follow the lines of the slanted roof offers a place to rest your "bathroom things" and looks enchanting at the same time.

This niche ledge behind the tub adds depth and character to the space.

The next two bathrooms have details of a different kind.

The combination of the interior shutter, medieval looking sconces, dark wood armoire, gothic style mirror, and crookneck faucet atop the stone sink all work together to make this bathroom magical.

The last bathroom is dramatic. The straight lines in the room from the black vertical paneled walls and the black herringbone brick floor provide the perfect contrast to the waves of the marble sink spanning the room. The waves are echoed by the faucet and the straight lines and colors of the room are found in the sconces. Gorgeous details indeed.

"It's the little things," as my mom used to say. They sure do add up to a lot!

I will be back tomorrow with the May edition of Library Love.

See you tomorrow,
