It seems as if bathroom remodels are on-going projects for me, having just completed a few with a few more in the works. In sourcing for inspiration, I often have to find bathrooms that are both functional and practical. Here are some that are fit the description!

A simple, refined classic bathroom will always remain timeless.

Clients often request plenty of storage, having a vanity with deep drawers & cabinets is practical.

If room allows, open shelving facing the tub offers great storage for accessories & towels.

A well lit bathroom is a must, this one offers flexible lighting in the way of a pendant, recessed, & sconces.

An interesting solution to maximize space and accommodate a tub & (double) shower combination!

Bathroom Love

Just had to share these images – I was looking online for inspiration pictures for a bathroom remodel I am currently working on when I came across these bathrooms done by a San Francisco based interior designer. Love the fresh and creative look of these bathrooms!

Awhile back, I featured a post titled “Hanging by a rope…” – with some fun, hanging beds.  I came across another image on ohdeedoh of a room with not just one, or two – but three hanging beds! Fun!

I’ve been on a bit of a Kate Spade binge lately, having recently purchased a new handbag, wallet, coin purse, iPhone case…so hard to resist when everything is so cute!  Next thing you know I’ll be sleeping in Kate Spade…or on Kate Spade! (Bedding, that is!) Launching in 2011 is a new bedding collection from Kate Spade New York.  The collection is punchy and graphic and as quoted from Kate herself, “I really went back to the original DNA of the brand for my inspiration — bright colors, bold graphics and beautiful combinations of the two.”  (The collection will retail from $129-$179.)

And while on the subject of home, check out these photos featured in Elle magazine of Kate Spade’s creative director Deb Lloyd’s Brooklyn townhouse, where she hosted a soiree to toast the brand’s launch of their new scent Twirl.

Lately, I have been doing an incredible amount of furnishing sourcing for client projects – today specifically researching and sourcing area rugs, pillows, and poufs.  In my “internet travels” I came across Calypso and loving their home goods section, especially the collection of area rugs, pillows, and poufs – coincidentally everything I was looking for!

…comes a beautiful selection of bedding that are all made of natural fibers and kind to the earth.

The company happens to be called “lazybones” from Australia.  I was fortunate to have been introduced to these lovely quilts and duvets through a client of mine.  It just so happens that I am currently working on a work/live loft space for an Australian who represents the line in the states through her showroom the “Rose Showroom.”

Tracy Hocking is the owner and designer for lazybones.  Her love of clothing and fabric design from the 1920’s-1950’s has been the inspiration for the bedlinens (and also the line of sleepwear and clothing collections) that she designs.

The line is also sold at Anthropologie stores nationwide.

Bathing Beauties

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!
