Beauty is what beauty does! Meaning, in this case, that not all bathrooms need to be white in order to be beautiful. When dark, good and exotic materials are utilized and mixed with brass, light washed wood and a lot or just enough mirror the opulence of a dark bathroom is not only unique and normally unexpected but, it's also seductive. I'm in love with the Chinoiserie vanities of the bathroom above. I also love the rustic unpolished floor and the detail of the different colore and size marble in the shower below. It's a total dream, isn't it? The bathroom, first and second images, belong to Kim Herbert, Harper's Bazzaar uk editor via Elle Decor. Enjoy!
I am convinced that our surroundings influence our beings and if we put in our homes only what we love based on comfort and functionality beauty will reveal itself. After all, having a warm, comfortably functional and beautiful home to come back to at the end of a long and hectic day, is what we all covet. A happy home which should render us with either a sense of comfort or reward at the end of our busy days.
