A blue bathtub adds personality to a sophisticated bath with a patriotic color scheme.
An especially large bath, with a freestanding blue bathtub in the center of a large window, has me searching for my Mr Bubble. This Fourth of July baby usually shies away from red, white and blue interiors, but this master bath, by designer Mary Watkins Woods, is an exception.
The deep blue double slipper tub is an unanticipated color choice and it’s repeated in the well worn antique Chinese area rug. Given the choice of a white porcelain garden seat as a waterproof side table you might expect a blue and white color scheme. Instead, red is added as an accent color and the comfortable furnishings set this space apart from the typical tiled bath and transforms it into a relaxing sanctuary. One could easily sit in the wood frame chair upholstered in a Scalamandré fabric and enjoy the sunshine. Should that become too intense, the cotton duck roman shade provides light control without changing the atmosphere of the bath at all.
The well-worn rug has seen worse than the occasional damp feet. And the pair of lacquered red coat stands – a surprise replacement for boring towel bars — offer wonderful jolts color as well as handy places to hang towels, robes, or even clothes.
