Edda Braune Bathroom October 08th, 2017
The hardest part which I didn't anticipate has been picking a color palette. Our adjoining bedroom is painted chamois yellow and it's tough to find a hue that both works with it and doesn't make me look sick. So for now I'm leaning toward classic white – fail‐safe timeless and always in good taste. The greatest thing about white bathrooms: They look equally appropriate in every design style. I'm not sure yet whether I'll stick with my streamlined traditional look or go into totally new territory but these eight outstanding baths will help me pick a direction.

We each have our own idea of what makes a perfect bathroom. It could be a spectacular view from the tub a spalike ambience classic English country fixtures or rich colors and exotic hand‐painted tiles. Of course for many of us a complete bathroom overhaul isn't in the cards. No matter what look is calling your name there are ways to translate the key elements of the style you love into your bathroom without the high price of remodeling. Let's explore some accessible ideas in five dream bathrooms. Even without the massive square footage or fancy designer you can pull together a gorgeous room with classic crisp decorator touches that are well within reach. Swap out standard blinds for fabric shades and your bath will suddenly feel like a real room. Upgrade your towels for a fluffy version with contrasting piping or grosgrain trim.

Not a fan of large displays of tchotchkes and objets d'art? You can go a bit wilder with color because you won't have visual clutter competing with a bold wall. But bright orange is a tough color to pull off even in a minimalist space. Take a tip from this room and limit the color to one or two smaller walls and pair it with shades of a neutral – such as sage green.

Covered dining. This dining space has a wood alcove built up and over a table creating an elegant dining space that looks like a private dining booth in an upscale bistro. The mix of materials from the timber paneling to the channeled upholstery and stone table adds sophistication to the alcove's slick urban look.

For those who prefer light neutral walls but are on the hunt for an alternative to white beige or gray think about going with a pale green or soft yellow as your main neutral. If the hue has a bit of gray or brown it will work as a neutral. Then add a small hit of bold yellow to really spice up the space.

Use quilt patterns in new ways. A traditional quilt pattern takes on a new use as a wall tile pattern in this bathroom. Designer Suzan Fellman recommends choosing a grouting color that matches the colored tiles as she did with the grout between the red tiles here.

Bring in natural light. "A frameless shower gives the illusion of openness. The less metal the less you notice that a wall is dividing the space" says Alison Causer of Alison Causer Design. "In this master bath I really wanted the natural light to reach every corner of the room. Since we used dark natural stone on all four walls we really needed to keep the light moving around the room". Maximize the view. "This home has a sophisticated and subdued palette with walnut casework throughout" says Kerry Ellis of Benning Design Associates. "It also has stunning views which is why we decided to keep the master bath and shower so open".
