My mother is remodeling her bathroom so that has given me an excuse to look at some pretty bathrooms at pinterest. She is turning an unused bedroom into a bathroom, and the old bathroom into a large closet, pretty neat! Actually, she has her eye on some large vintage wooden dresser with a mirror and built-in candle chandeliers and are furnishing/deciding where to place everything around that piece of furniture. I think that sounds wonderful, imagine taking a bath in that setting!

We don't have any plans on remodeling the bathroom any time soon, and it's kind of annoying even thinking about remodeling the bathroom yourself when you only have one. If you had two bathrooms, well that makes it a lot easier, but when you just have one, what do you do? I can imagine people go away for a week and pay others to do everything. But what if you want to remodel it yourself? Not the most convenient situation, especially not if you don't get it done within a week!
from rainy days and blankets, via pinterest (what a neat name for a blog, right up my alley!) love the art on the wall, such a neat contrast; tiled walls and then framed pictures and paintings!
Pinterest is really getting addictive. It's quite easy to loose track of time, and somehow it's more fun the more you do it, I think. After looking at my dream bath board, I definitely see a clear pattern. What I like more than anything is subway tile, either in white or carrera marble. But what I've seen lately that I really like, are darker accents in combination with that subway tile. Wrought iron windows, or chairs or structural accents in some way. Like this awesome walk-in shower:
from la dolce vita via pinterest. This house by the way is gorgeous in every way, shape and form. I just love the use of art throughout that house.
I also like this bathroom, however it's weirdly on the edge between feeling classic and feeling dated:
from designsponge via pinterest. Kind of funny, as I went looking at the source, I realized several rooms from this article (designed by Lauren Stern) have been in my inspiration folder saved on my computer for ages. I love that kitchen, unsreasonably much. I also adore that arched wallpaper hallway. Overall what I love about this bathroom as well as many of the rooms in the article is the use of brass accents and nice vintage details. In terms of this bathroom, often I prefer lighter grout on the subway tile, but here I think the dark grout works well, especially in combination with the brass accents and the wooden vanity.
Here are two other bathrooms that are so very different but I like them both for various reasons:
this one from design is mine because of the tiny space and the ultimate charm and character.
and this one from the estate of things because to me, this is the definiton of a luxurious bathroom. Of course the cherckerboard floor and brass accents don't hurt either!
So those are a few bathrooms which I think are just gorgeous. I'm sending these to my mother!
