Bathroom Inspiration!

Here are some pics of my absolute favourite bathroom in a very long time! I found them on the ever inspiring...."Desire to Inspire" blog!

The one thing that really stood out to me are the quatrefoil cutouts above the windows after reading an incredibly interesting post about them on the "Limestone & Boxwoods" blog! The tiles are beautiful too!



How stunning is this basin...just look at the detail in the vanity legs!

So simple and so gorgeous! This is a very similar colouring to what I have chosen for my new kitchen which seems to be taking forever to go in. I am in my second week of school holidays with 3 hungry boys and zero kitchen! Our local McDonalds will know us by name soon. Tracey xx

I am loving the stone and glossy black looks that have been popping up at the designer blogs lately. Very cool!

Also, I have issued a designer challenge for the lovely design bloggers. Please come join. It should be fun.

Absolutely adore this bathroom -- the quatrefoil windows, the interesting legs on the vanity, the shower enclosure...and of course the tub. It's perfect.

Tracy this bathroom is nothing short of stunning. Love it! My Mandalay fabric swatch arrived so thanks to you I can order some. I know what you mean about the school holidays and hungry children.... I felt like I never left the kitchen!
Best wishes

That bath is stunning. Like you pointed out; the quatrefoil cutouts, to the legs, to the black & glass shower wall makes for one gorgeous space. I hope your kitchen project will soon just be a memory and you'll be back to cooking for those 2 growing boys soon. What would a mom do without a local Micky D's!?

Lovely use of the black gloss in the cabinetry & trim. I hope that kitchen is installed very soon Trace.

Loving it as well, the quatrfoils really do it and I am wondering how to accomplish that in an bath without windoes. Perhaps a mirror combind with Tromp l'oeil
