Though the bathroom is generally viewed as a place to get clean, get ready…..I also see it as a place to unwind, relax. Every winter, when the house is quiet and still, and my hands and feet are slightly frozen, the thought of curling up in a warm bath is bliss. These bathrooms, with their old fashioned style and beautiful designs would only further encourage this feeling.
I found this photo from a blog that is simply amazing. Expect more photos from there in the future. The combination of blue, white and silver brings a cool and calming effect. The cute little details of the vintage style door handle to the sweetness of the tap labels is what makes this bathroom so lovable.
Though the look of a chandelier in the bathroom is beautiful, I think it is a waste. I would rather have it in the dining or lounge room where it can be used and admired more often. It does suit this bathroom quite nicely though. I love the freshness of the white contrasting with the richness of the timber mantelpiece. The bath is just so cute. You will notice more claw-foot baths yet to come. I think that they are the most quaint part of any vintage bathroom.
How amazing would it be to have a bath with a view! Whether the view is of a garden, farmlands, mountain valleys or the ocean….it would be the ultimate place to relax. I love that in this shot there’s a bottle of wine ready to go. You would just have to make sure no one’s planning on going walk-a-bout outside or your not expecting any visitors.
This ladder stand is so handy and lovely to look at. I couldn’t imagine that (if your handy with timber) it would be that difficult to make. You can never have enough shelves in the bathroom, especially if you plan to spend a long leisurely afternoon in the tub.
Who would have thought you could get a beige bath tub? I think the designers have done a great job giving this bathroom an old fashioned look using just white and beige colours. My favourite part of this bathroom is the tap on the bath. Must have a vintage tap to match the vintage tub.
I just love the old fashioned mirrors. The ones with the ability to open to reveal shelves inside. I don’t think I have actually been in a bathroom that has this type of mirror. They are quite rare in this modern age. It might have to do with its small size. The mirror in my bathroom at the moment is around 7 to 8 times larger than this one, so I can see why this style is not commonly used. I think it has a sweetness that the large mirrors miss out on.
Another white bathroom that I fancy. As much as it may look good, the towel closet seems silly to put in the bathroom. Though it would be functional, every time you took a shower or bath, moisture would get trapped within the closet. It’s a shame as it suits this design beautifully.
My favourite part of this bathroom is the shape of the sinks. It reminds me of those Jane Austin movies where a bowl is placed in their bedrooms to wash with. I like the look of having open shelves, using boxes to hold all the miscellaneous things we need.
