Black Bathrooms

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!
 Mixed with golden details is pure richness.

I love black bathrooms. I remember about 9 years ago painting a bathroom for a French couple and agreeing to do it Black Lacquer,They were so cool and so was that bathroom! Great post!

The floor in the first image and the marble in different colours and sizes in the second one are beautiful! I also love the third bathroom from the bottom: elegant and dramatic. :)

I don't like black shade and color when it comes to bathroom fixtures. I don't like black color at all. I need some bright colors.
