Bathroom Decorating

Next to bedroom decorating, bathroom decorating is a tie. Especially in the master bedroom and bath. You need a flow from one room to the next.

So in our house, I repeated the wallpaper and fresco theme. I chose to place artwork and pictures that I had owned for a while in my bath. As the picture indicates, these pieces blend well.

We installed a mahogany stained square transom over the door that leads into the dressing room. This looks architecturally interesting, and allows natural light to enter the windowless dressing room during the day.

The wallpaper and fresco border are a repeat in the bidet and toilet area, which has a half moon circular wall in this small room.

I adore relaxing baths! My husband organized all of my bath potions on a shelf in the bidet/toilet area to reduce clutter around the Jacuzzi tub. And I installed two small half-moon and square glass shelves to feature Renaissance angel statues, delicate Egyptian perfume bottles and a basket of rose bath salts. The cherub angel shelves are made of resin, but look like stone to match the aged look of the fresco border.

Since that part of the house faces east, we decided upon a 7’X6’ cube glass window to allow natural sunlight to come streaming in over the Jacuzzi tub, which accommodates two adults nicely. We bought fluted wood and rosettes to frame this window and painted the wood work bright white. It makes a strong contrast against the faint blueness of the cloud wallpaper.

It looks framed, and was very cost effective. The other two bathrooms also have distinctive mirrors, which look custom and not a “Builder Built” house.

One of the distinctions of wealthy, custom-built homes is good lighting. And when it comes to bathroom decorating, good lighting is very important. Homes, generally built by builders really skimp on lights, especially nice ones. In our bath we chose two six light fixtures (one over each sink) and installed dimmers. They are on each end of the seven-foot bath counter. I always found my prior bathrooms to be dark when I was putting on my make-up, but no more! I really love this bathroom! 

Oh, and don’t forget to tell your plumber if you want two shower heads in your master shower! You know what for….
