Now that I have your undivided attention – no melted chocolate, just paint!
The master bath in this Illinois Victorian is contrast of brilliant white and creamy brown. The paneled lower walls and crown moulding are painted bright white. The upper walls, even the ceiling, are painted a dramatic dark chocolate – a bold move that visually lowers the high ceiling and creates intimacy. A vintage clawfoot slipper tub is fitted with a freestanding British telephone faucet. The hexagon floor tiles are another classic choice. The hex tile is repeated on the glass shower floor, while subway tile covers its walls. The exposed shower set includes a porcelain sunflower showerhead and lever handles. Glamourous touches include the 1980’s crystal chandelier, vanity with cushy chair and a gold leaf bracket shelf to hold extra towels – a clever idea.
