For a personal, time-touched look, consider repurposing an existing furniture piece instead of installing a new vanity. In this space, designer Lindsey Lang used a deft hand when mixing old and new elements. “I used a reclaimed piece as a vanity and an antique market basket for storage. These older elements pair beautifully with the modern tiles.”
Designer Claire Paquin pays homage to old-world style and charm with the redesign of this guest bathroom in white and gray. A traditional-style white vanity with a dark countertop complements tile on the wall and floor, while the artwork, round mirror and patterned Roman shade help assert the vintage look. The room is classic, clean and comfortable.
In the hallway of this updated home, TriplePoint Design Build included a pocket door as a gateway to the Art Deco master bathroom design used in the next room. The hallway style has a transitional feel, with landscape art and family photographs on display.
Create interest and texture with a collection of everyday and vintage bathroom items. This Victorian Gothic wall cabinet is filled with vintage cosmetic jars, ivory grooming implements, shells, sponges, towels and soaps. “If you have glass-fronted shelves, use it as an opportunity not just for storage but for display of interesting objects,” says Susan Sully, author of the book “Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and Antiques” in which this home was featured. Sully also recommends painting the back of a cabinet a dark color to make light objects really stand out.
Vintage trophies for toothbrushes and other grooming supplies sit on a custom concrete sink in this bathroom filled with clever details. Designer Dana Lynch used hide-covered milking stools and antlers for ball caps to add to the whimsical, charmingly retro feel of this boys' bath.
This master bathroom is a luxurious retreat contrasting classic tile and fixtures with vintage lighting and rich color. The centerpiece of the room is the oval jacuzzi tub with a stunning chandelier overhead. The tile, counters and flooring are crema marfil marble with honey onyx accents.
This newly remolded master bath achieves a 1920s look with the color palette TriplePoint Design Build selected for the design and special features they added to the room. For example, the beautifully patterned accent window seen behind a white storage cabinet brings a sense of vintage style to the space. A display of sunflowers is another interesting touch.
This half bath features a floating vanity against a visually striking wall with a stone mosaic design. The space also includes a large mirror with stone mosaic frame as well as a vintage-style light bulb sconce light.
To make the master bathroom feel a bit more modern, designer Kerra Michele Huerta brought in a sleek glass shower door, a clean-lined vanity and black pennytile floors. The vanity has space for towels underneath and so helps the bathroom stay clutter-free.
Navy porcelain tile engulfs this crisp white soaking tub, while a corner of windows introduces relaxing scenery. Beside the tub is a locally-sourced vintage tool to set lavender or other bath time amenities.
A long vintage area rug adds color and pattern over the master bathroom’s wood floor, and a travertine pedestal table by the tub offers a spot for bath accessories or a beverage to sip while enjoying a soak.
