Interior Glass Wall Bath

Vintage meets modern in a European villa with a glass wall bathroom.

An ancient European villa, with brick walls, was modified to meet modern day needs with a floor-to-ceiling glass wall bathroom. This space is ideal for someone living alone. However, there are semi-sheer curtains that can be drawn across both glass walls to provide privacy.  The bath has a claw foot tub, painted classic black, that’s filled by a floor mounted faucet.  The single vessel sink mounted on a console table turned vanity has a deck-mounted modern faucet. The table has a handy lower shelf and its graceful sabre legs are a distraction from the exposed fittings. … Continue Reading


Chocolate Bath

Now that I have your undivided attention – no melted chocolate, just chocolate brown paint in this master bath!

The master bath in this Illinois Victorian is contrast of brilliant white and chocolate brown. Not widely used since the 1970s, brown is returning to home décor and in a big way.  In this master bath, he upper walls, and the ceiling, are painted a dramatic dark chocolate brown — a bold move that visually lowers the high ceiling and creates intimacy. The paneled lower walls and crown moulding are painted bright white. The high contrast combination is very dramatic. A vintage clawfoot slipper tub is fitted with a freestanding British telephone faucet.… Continue Reading


Blue and White Portuguese Tile Bath

blue and white Lascaux Portuguese tile bath by Joe Nye

While the tile remains the focus in this master bath retreat, other elements help create the mood.

Interior designer Joe Nye based this master bath design on the lavish use of hand-painted Portuguese tiles.  The wainscoting consists of glazed tile from Lascaux, aptly named Blue Flower, with a solid blue border added top and bottom.  The empire tub is paired with an Edwardian style floor-mounted tub filler.  Sunlight streams through a pair of stained wood casement windows topped with a simple roman shade.  A pair of sconces provides soft lighting for evening baths.  Complimentary blue and white striped linen was chosen to slipcover a basic Parsons chair. … Continue Reading


Pink and Green Feminine Bath

Layering fabrics helps create a romantic tub alcove.

Pink and green is a favorite color combination to use for little girls, but it’s seldom seen in grown-up baths.  The not so young will dream about evening soaks in this beautiful space.  Eyes are immediately drawn to the cluster of crystal chandeliers above the clawfoot tub.  The visual impact is greater than the now common single fixture usage and their strong statement is matched by the generous use of fabrics.  Shutters provide privacy on the lower half of the windows with gathered sheers above.  The scalloped edge echos the bottom of the chandeliers, while the pom pom fringe is repeated on the side panels and rod pocket valance. … Continue Reading


Oriental Rugs in Bathrooms

Handmade carpets add a luxurious finishing touch

Atticmag’s bathrooms are packed with inspiration. While the sinks, fixtures, tubs and taps may catch most people’s attention, we rug-obsessed folks naturally zero in on the floors. If you haven’t ventured past the standard fare bath mat then take a gander at these rooms to see how a handmade carpet adds that posh finishing touch to the loo.

This black and gold Oriental rug is a spot-on match for the Asian inspired vanity and gold basins.

The no fuss look of a gent’s retreat is an ideal setting for a tribal Balouch in earthy shades of brown and charcoal.… Continue Reading


Italian Bathtub Chic

I suffer from a serious case of bath-love when I see these bathing beauties

But it’s definitely and eccentrically ultra-modern. Conventional tubs are great, but my wish list has a distinct point of view: special features that, along with great design, really make tubs chic. Every tub on the list is Italian-designed.

It started with this image clipped from a German magazine. I fell hard for the tub-in-the-round luxury and easy to clean floor mounted filler post of the ilbagnoalessi-one freestanding acrylic whirlpool tub.  Bathroom TVs aren’t a new idea but what genius to locate a small screen so that taking a long post-workout soak can be entertaining vs when-do-i-get-out boring.… Continue Reading
