Layering pink and green print fabrics creates a romantic bathtub alcove for an ultra-feminine bath.
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 with multiples than with a more common single fixture and their strong statement is matched by the generous use of floral 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. Softening the space are the large floral print curtain panels at the arch, held open by rope trim and large tassel tiebacks. Brass accents add to the warmth include a freestanding Victorian style tub filler and ornate claw feet resting gracefully on a basket weave tile rug. White hexagon tiles with pink flower accents and a double border adds even more feminine appeal.

Please don’t tease! Give us details – where did the drapes, plumbing fixtures and lighting come from ?
I’m sorry, Sandy. I don’t remember what magazine I had torn it from way before writing about it. The curtains are most likely custom. The chandeliers look vintage, but could easily be replicated with reproductions.
