I often (day)dream about bathrooms.
Not ordinary bathrooms where you get in to wash and shower and get out as soon as possible, but bathrooms like beautiful spaces you can stay in for hours.
Just because it's such a beautiful, calming and inspiring place.
My own 'bathroom' is more like a cage with a shower (okay, i admit the shower is quite good) and one small washtub. I am not particular unhappy with, because let's be honest, as a 24 year old student, you don't have to have your perfect dream bathroom yet.
But as i said, i do dream about beautiful bathrooms a lot.
To me, a great bathroom is a place you can totally relax, it feels like a second home and everything in it speaks beauty.
It has to be perfect, not to clean and empty, but not to full of all sorts of little things either.
Lately i am getting more and more into all things that remind me of French style.
In particular the more old French style.
Some years ago i dreamed about bathrooms like this one...
Although lots of white is still very appealing to me, because of it's calmness and freshness, i now find this bathroom too clinical. I guess i need some more colour and prettyness around me to really make me happy.
The bathroom below is a totally different kind of a bathroom.
I have a terrible weakness for baths on 'feet' (that's how i call them), but all this wood is too much for me. I guess it's too dark and maybe even a little bit too old looking to be beautiful to me. Although i do like this bathroom. I won't complain when it was offered to me today. The fact that's it seems to be quite a big space and the sweet antique chair make up a lot.
The bathrooms below are all lovely in my opinion, they all have something special that makes them really calming and inspiring places.
What about a bath outside?
Wouldn't it be great to take a hot bath in a beautiful empty space in the middle of nowhere with a great view?
Unfortunately, Holland is not the place for a bath outside, considering the weather.
This washtub with flowers is absolutely heaven to me. Although it's small, it's so sweet and original, your bathroom doesn't need much more when you have this one.
Luckily there are so many things to decorate your bathroom (a little). Even when your bathroom is not that nice or big or whatever you want it to be, there's always room for a little decoration to brighten it up.
From beautful and luxurious bathtowels to great little vases with beautiful flowers.
What about these antique hairbrushes?
Some inspiration to decorate your bathroom...
Some stores which have great items for your bathroom are: Toast, Anthropologie, Duravit,Ikea and of course your local thriftsores and any vintage stores which not only sell clothes (look out for little vintage vases to put sweet flowers in, small antique plates where you can lay soapbars on.)
I worked on this post for shockingly 9(!) days, because i really wanted it to be perfect. Well, i like it, but perfection just isn't realistic, so i just have to be happy with what i made of it.
Of course i am really curious about your bathroom dreams and which bathrooms i posted you like or dislike.
So comments are very much appreciated!
