Bathroom decor is some of my favorite home design projects to obsess over because I love making these spaces my personal retreat that I can relax in at the end of a long day. I love sites like these that provide such a great resource of bathroom decor ideas that fit any decorative style or room size that I am working with. We have been through several homes over the years and this one we are in now may be our final property. For this reason, I want to create an epic space like the master suite in these bathroom pictures. I love the elegant touches like the crystal chandelier over the jacuzzi and the intricately trimmed cabinetry on the vanity.
As you can tell from these photos of our house we are in pretty desperate need of some bathroom decor to liven up the space a bit. We have already started adding small bits of bathroom wall decor (the star fishes on the right wall) but it just isn't enough for this all white space. When we were originally designing the bathroom I said that I wanted to keep everything bright white so that the space would look fresh and clean, then bring in color and design through artwork and other decorative accents. Now is the time to bring these bathroom design ideas into the space but, to be honest, at this point I am not quite sure where to start.
When we started planning out our new bathroom decor, I knew that I wanted something very unique and unexpected. I think that the best bathroom designs have a classically elegant look but when funky unexpected touches to make the space really stand out from your average room. Our designer definitely achieved this by blending luxuries gold hardware, custom tile and a lavish soaking tub alongside funkier touches like wood beams and reclaimed wood vanities. These elements of rustic bathroom decor offset the fancier touches and bring the entire design down to earth to make it approachable and cozy. We couldn't be more please with the finished look and want to carry this style into the bedroom as well.
I like to think that I have a variety of skills as an interior designer, but I have been told lately that bathroom decor is where I really thrive. I have to say that I agree with these statements because I have such a passion for creating elegant and serene retreats to spend the beginning and end of your day in, whether that is picking out the right bathroom wall decor ideas to bring some pizazz to an ordinary design or completely gutting and transforming a space. This is one of my latest guest bath remodels that I am particularly proud of. I think we nailed the small bathroom decor and managed to make a fairly limited floor plan seem open and spacious.
I may be in the minority, but I absolutely love rustic and masculine bathroom decor that harkens back images of the old wild Wild West. Bathroom themes aren't exactly the most popular thing nowadays so I did have some trouble finding photos to inspire our look. This actually proved to be a blessing in disguise because it encouraged us to be super creative and come up with a look that perfectly suited our personal style rather than copying somebody else's design. Here you can see our take on western bathroom decor. I didn't want to be over the top, but rather keep everything simple and rustic in a brown and tan color palette, then bring in run western touches through art and decorative accents.
I have always loved bathroom decor that is a little bit on the unique side, and definitely very shabby chic. My overall style would probably be described as a mixture of traditional elegance with the warmth of a cottage design, so this beach bathroom decor was right up my alley. Unfortunately, we do not actually live on or near a beach, but that does not mean that you can't have fun with maritime inspired accents in your home. In my opinion, I kept things subtle and universal by starting with beautiful beadboard panelling on the walls to give some nice architectural detailing, then a pedestal sink and tub finish off the country style foundation to the bathroom designs.
