Traditional Home magazine featured an inspirational section on bathroom vanities and when I saw them it was like I died and went to vanity heaven!  Not only are the vanities themselves beautiful but the bathrooms are too.  I’m definitely feeling inspired by these! Looking forward to some bathroom projects in 2010!

This bathroom in Texas features antique mirrored tiles on the face of the vanity (what a great idea!) and Carrera marble (my favorite all time classic).  I think the wood floor really gives this bathroom warmth.

Using a trestle table as a vanity is so completely unique and different! In this Atlanta bathroom, the wood frames used for the mirrors were imported from France and the pavers are stained concrete to give this bathroom an overall Old-World look. I love the pendant lighting and the addition of pieces of furniture flanking either side of the vanity.

This bathroom was designed by Larry Laslo for the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club Showhouse in New York.  The walls are amazing – they are covered in heavily veined Italian marble tiles. I think the frameless mirrors were a good choice – nothing too overly stated, just the right balance, makes the black-crystal sconces stand out on their own.

In a master bath, this custom vanity was installed at each end of the bathroom (with tub in the middle).  The mirror is imported from London.  The sconces are really interesting (not sure of their source).

These vanities are from Kohler and appear suspended (!) against a wall of silver-leaf glass tiles at a beach house in New York. I like the mix of contemporary elements with traditional accessories in this bathroom designed by Eric Cohler.

Are these not {some} of the most gorgeous bathrooms you have ever seen? Click here for more!

Yummy Carrara Marble with the warm hardwood floors. I want to light some candles, and draw a warm bath…and relax for hours.
