Choose your bathroom

If you are like me and you love to spend some time in your bathroom, then I might think you will enjoy my post of today.

There are so many beautiful bathrooms. To my opinion you should have 2 different bathrooms at your home. A classic styled bathroom and a contemporary styled one.

Depending on your mood of the day, you could take a bath in your classic styled bathroom, listening to some classic music or you could choose to take a bath while listening to lounge music in your contemporary styled bathroom!

In this post I show you some images of bathrooms I really love!

I love the warmth of this bathroom by bringing in a lot of wood as the bath paneling and the wooden shutters.

Are you agree with me that this bathroom is a wonderful place to spend some time?

A bathroom with a fire place! Must be very cosy in winter time!

I so love to see a bath standing free in the room. And the chandelier above the bath tube is just gorgeous.

A combination of paneling and wall paper.

Bathroom of Brooke from Velvet and Linen

I so love the carpet and that beautiful stool Brooke has brought in here! It feels as if you are walking in a kind of living room.

Light oak for the cabinets and paneling. Very Belgian.

However it was not described, I might think that in this bathroom the Morrocan tadelakt technique is used on the walls and for the bath tube as well.

I definitely would go for this technique if I had a second bathroom. If you want to know more about tadelakt click HERE, HERE and HERE.

I do hope you enjoyed my post of today and I would love to hear from you which type of bathroom you prefer.

    Oh, such beautiful bathrooms. I have a hard time selecting what I would love to have. For one thing a fireplace is a great thing, for another some gorgeous view into a garden is aways so relaxing while sitting in the tub….
    Thanks for this wonderful selection!

    Greet, I love your bathroom! My other favorite is Axel's bathroom – what a cozy place to retreat for a relaxing bath. Like a little sanctuary.

    Thank you for providing such great input to my post on casement windows! I love having blog friends in Europe that I can ask questions about authentic European design elements! My sister emailed me and asked about your beautiful library. She is renovating her 1929 house in Washington DC (this is a very old house for DC, believe it or not!) and she wanted to know all about the library in your house – she thought that the paneling and the color of the stain was absolute perfection!

    Thank you for the mention, and thank you for this wonderful post.

    Oh my, Greet! I am over the moon for these bathrooms — I cannot choose a favorite. I adore the one by Axel Vervoord — it's so unique and beautiful. (don't you love his books?) I also love the one just above that, source unknown. That one is by Baden Baden — so so grand… and then, the contemporary ones, because they are so clean and simple, but with such great focus on materials.

    Thanks for sharing these — I hope you are having a fabulous weekend,

    Fabulous images. I saved several of them for future inspiration. I particularly liked the one with the arched tile ceiling over the tub, built- in niche and and curved window transom over the tub. Very warm and creative. Thanks for sharing all. Your posts are always just the best. Happy Sunday, Mona

    Wow!! This is an absolutely stunning collection of gorgeous bathrooms!! It's impossible for me to choose just one favourite, I love them all!!

    The bathroom with the treadmill was designed by Canadian designer Candice Olson on an episode of her TV show, Divine Design. That one has been in my inspiration folder for a while!!


    P.S. I've just launched a new design blog. I hope you'll stop by and check it out.

    Bonjour Greet !
    Avoir une cheminée allumée, ou la vue sur la mer de sa baignoire, quel luxe ! De toutes ces salles de bain je préfère la première avec sa grande fenêtre
    qui donne sur les arbres et les boiseries autour.
    Bonne semaine !

    They are beautiful and very much bathroom 'Porn' but I would be interested to see the styles applied to a much smaller space. Many people including myself have much smaller bathrooms.

    Thank you so much for including are little bathroom in your stunning post. I am so touched and honored!

    Hi Greet,

    I have to agree with your other followers about the fireplace in the bathroom, what an absolutely wonderful luxury, one day maybe! While I was back in Belgium in the summer, my husband and I visited Peter Porters store/design centre and it is the most sumptuous "showroom" I have ever been in, I would have moved in if I could, I remember the bathrooms being particularly splendid.

    By the way, I can't wait to hear your interview on the SRT, coming soon!!


  34. Sanity Fair Wednesday, October 20, 2010 at 1:32 PM - Reply

    My goodness, these are beautiful. I LOVE the ones with fireplaces! So wonderfully cozy! (in temp, if not in size) I remember one home I visited that had head lamps over all the shower doors, for toweling off – wouldn't want to experience any abrupt and uncomfortable temp change! Nice idea, but a fireplace is much lovelier.
    P.S. I'm hosting a Marc Jacobs jewelry give away! I hope you'll stop by!

    The wood-inspired bathrooms give out some Victorian vibe. The elegance of these bathrooms is quite unmatched. The contemporary ones, on the other hands, really befit either the modern luxurious lifestyle, or the simplistic functional one. These days, remodeling focus on a lot of things, like aesthetics, interior design, and functionality.

  43. Frameless Shower Door Thursday, May 26, 2011 at 1:29 PM - Reply

    Frameless shower doors are very economical to purchase and hence they can easily be purchased by the average people. They look very delicate and thin apparently and thus many people are afraid that they would easily break. However the fact is that they are much more strong, thick, and durable than the ordinary glass and this makes their maintenance easier.

    All the design in this post is just so gorgeous and I am sure that it will cost a lot of money to be able to have that kind of bathroom. For me one of the parts of the bathrooms is the flooring. If the flooring has great design the whole bathroom will looks very amazing.

    How I wish my bathroom would look like one of these. I like bathrooms with huge windows not because I don't like privacy, but because it's very relaxing to see wonderful views outside while having a bath. But the bathroom has to be somewhere really secluded for me to be comfortable with it.

    I was really impressed on what I have seen on those photos, really wonderful. The combination of blue and white tiles looks awesome.!I wonder how much the cost of those tiles. Choosing the best tile is such a good way in order to have an attractive and clean bathroom.
