Spotlight: Bathrooms

{ images via House Beautiful and Pinterest }

From modern to rustic and from playful to elegant, I love bathrooms. The bathroom, to me, is the showcase of design and aesthetic. A restaurant or home could be beautiful, but if the bathroom is dull or plain it goes down quite a few spots in my book. It is (typically) a small space where personal design tastes can let loose. When I was young my mother had a friend whose house was always simple and orderly. However, her small hallway bathroom was bright blue (including the ceiling!) with ivy plants, flowers, and fairy statues everywhere you looked. It was so out of tune with the rest of the house, but it was great .... a small escape for your fantasies. Above are some very diverse (but very beautiful) inspirations for bathrooms.

East Coast

I'm loving this inspiration board from Snippet & Ink. Although it's a wedding board it reminds me of any type of east coast summer party .... perhaps Nantucket or the Hamptons? Nautical blue and white, seashells, crab, and sailboats? Count me in!

Dream Summer Trip

As much as I adore NY summer nights, most days make me yearn to get out of the hot, busy city. Cocoa Island in the Maldives looks like a tropical fairytale. The elegant, natural design and the clear water is leaving me breathless. However, if you can't get away anytime soon take a look at these Ten Reasons to Love New York This Summer!

French Industrial

These images remind me of the French countryside, but with a modern industrial twist. Love how there are so many little things everywhere, yet it's organized and clean. I wish I could accomplish that with my apartment!
