Honestly, I could feel my stress level dropping while looking at these photos. Classic b&w baths are and will always be my favorite. My tip to Jen is to be sure to use a somewhat dark grout on the hex tiles. White loses the pretty pattern and is HORRIBLE to keep clean.

I love all these bathroom ideas! I really need to upgrade our bath area and these just really make me want to start saving up for it! Have a good weekend!

I could happily relax in any of these bathrooms. I would LOVE to have a clawfoot tub one day. Nothing is better than a bubble bath, sweet smelling candles and good book.


LOVE the last two pics! My mouth is watering. I want to go tackle my bathroom.

I love bathrooms and these amazing ones are making me drool!!!


Did you see this in the NYT a while back? That mega sink fills me with joy.

Amanda {Mocking Bird}

Oh these are glorious.
I need an old bathroom so I can redecorate it hehe


These are gorgeous!

And I'm with you - the black tub is incredible :)

I love classic bathrooms. Not that I don't enjoy showering in a super modern slate and granite job - but there is something about the images above that really speak to me. And I especially love that chandelier in #3.

Clawfoot tubs seem to be more popular out on the westcoast I rarely see them...BUT i so wish i had one!

i've been thinking about painting the beadboard wainscot in my sunroom a light gray color. That first picture inspires me to bite the bullet and do it!


Oh my gosh absolutely beautiful!

Jane Flanagan

I'm crazy for the first bathroom!


I kept looking at the photo with the double sinks...I love that bathroom! And, the bath with the barcart...clever idea!


WOW...what a gorgeous round-up of bathrooms! i love the black tub! on my wish list :)

I love these bathrooms! Love the look of a clean, classic bathroom. Forever timeless...


Oh these baths are absolutely gorgeous - claw-footed baths are my favourite!

Umm, I have a silly question, but I was reading the comments on Blah, Blah, Blahg and you mentioned your "Tasmanian father-in-law" ... is your father-in-law from Tassie, Australia? That's where I'm from! Hehe I'm so daggy about the way I get excited whenever I see "tasmania' mentioned in blogs!

cassandra @ coco+kelley

this might be the most insanely drool-worthy list of bathrooms EVER. i would like #6, please :)

I love your thoughts on this, Anne! And I feel I must put a chandelier on the list when it's time to reno the bathroom.

so many good tips in here. all the images are simply great to illustrate your arguments.
my fav bathroom will have a bath tub like the last photograph, but maybe in baby blue, to add details in gold and silver.

These rooms can be an amazing part of our houses too. They are not only a place where we spend just 5 minutes of our life, they can be a place for relax so, if we want to feel comfortable there, we have to create interiors with a gorgeous vibe like on your inspiring pictures. The combination of black and white looks always chic and elegant. Every room looks so calm, clean and bright. For those who like more colours, you can put there some accessories just to get more life in these interiors.

Best regards,
