What’s not to love about this fun-filled colorful bath.
Interior designer Baily McCarthy describes her brain as half neon, half Coco Chanel black and white – me thinks it’s more 80/20. This delightful guest bath is a peak inside the Austin home created for her family. McCarthy started with the Katie Ridder beetlecat wallpaper leftover from their previous home. The blue tub surround tile pattern turned into a happy mistake – it was suppose to be installed at a 45 degree angel for a quatrefoil look, but the installer made a big oops. As trendy as this design is nowadays, I think it was pure happenstance.
A porthole cabinet mirror and marine wall lights carry on the nautical motif. The modern mirrored vanity from the Waterworks Henry collection reflects the Robins Egg penny tile mosaic – also by Waterworks. The simple, but vibrant, orange rug color is repeated in the traditional border shower curtain and box valance. I especially like the addition of the ventilated built-in laundry hamper that tilts out for easy access. McCarthy’s design style shouts go big or go home… or in her case, go big at home!
