Black subway tile makes a smart backsplash for this Art Deco bathroom (that's Marilyn Monroe approved). Upper walls are covered in heathered gray wallpaper, a strong contrast to the tiles' glossy finish.
The soaking tub is the highlight of this black and white bathroom. With its updated brass faucet, the tub feels both traditional in appeal and unique and modern in comparison with the recent chrome and silver trend. A black ladder shelf holds towels, and a nearby black stool holds soap and decorative items. Black and white floor tile rounds out the classic but contemporary feel of the space.
When guests need to freshen up, they can head into this pretty powder room. Here, an edgy vanity and mirror give the space Art Deco style, while a penny tile backsplash and wood vessel sink add some natural texture.
