Romantic Bathrooms designs
Gold-hued glass tiles line the wall in a women's bath makeup area. A hand blown glass mirrror and wall sconces were imported from Italy to add a elegance to the space. The walls were treated with a gold luster Venetian plaster for texture and visual interest. The gilded stool and cherry console provide a glamorous spot for any women to use.
This red vessel sink sits a top a tumbled travertine counter top. The warm red walls complement the sink and add an element of surprise in this powder room. The walls are embellished by a gold leaf Modello design. Photograph by Cynthia MacDonald.
This oversized Jacuzzi tub was placed in front of the picture window to take advantage of the view. The window is adorned by a silk window treatment. The neutral fabric was purposely chosen so as to not compete with the view. Photograph by Cynthia MacDonald.
This powder room uses the same color glass tile, which is sandblasted on the lower half and glossy on the upper half. A cast concrete sink and a stainless steel toilet complete the elegant look.
A posh Paris hotel spa was the inspiration for this master bathroom. The furniture-style cabinets are a replication of French country cabinetry prevalent in the south of France during the 18th century. A stunning wall of candle niches offers pockets of glowing light. The therapeutic benefits of chromotherapy have been incorporated through lighting in the tub and shower areas. Piped-in music and a flat screen television mounted behind a tempered two-way mirror complete the experience. Photography by Ric Marder.
