Design Inspiration Friday: Art In The Bathroom

Don't you love something to look at when your in a bathroom? Bathrooms have such potential to be a serene or inspirational space. I tend toward the nautical look when it comes to bathrooms, and I really enjoy a gallery wall look in there too. I'm still working on our navy powder room with some art and thought I would give us all some pretty images to get inspired.

The only problem with this bathroom is if you have littles- don't you think this might be hard to keep things in working order and clean with images and prints that low? However, I do love how it's a mixed gallery throughout.

Plates? Yes please! I think of plates like art so they can go on any wall in almost any space.

           I love how all these prints are used like wallpaper- this is amazing!

You can't go wrong with a classic navy and a collection of images.

  1. bathroom design ideas is more than simply a place to prepare meals; it is the essence of your home and an investment in your lifestyle. Whether you are looking to create a bold and punchy contrast or an understated look to coordinate with your surroundings, our team at Kitchen Essence ensure that the result reflects the character of the owner and the home.

  2. The powder room on our main floor was very plain and the toilet is opposite the basin (and opposite the mirror - hmmm). The wall behind the toilet was so bland so I put a shelf above it and then placed a few decorative items on the shelf. I have a picture frame, a blue mason jar and a little white bunny at the moment. I switch out the picture all the time to change it up. For the last year I had some free printables from Emily at Jones Design Company rotating through the frame (if you sign up for her newsletter you get access to her free printables archive - the prints I used are called summer essentials, winter essentials, spring essentials and fall essentials - they are watercolour paintings by her). Right now, I have a different Spring themed free printable in there. Long answer but I can't leave without saying how much I love that blue striped bath up there!

  3. For some reason, the bathroom is where a lot of people spend a lot of time organizing their thoughts, whether while lounging in the tub, having a nice hot shower, or otherwise. So I think it’ll be great if it was beautifully designed, so that they have something to focus on while doing so. Actually, it’s quite hard to choose which among them stands out the most, but the one design by Tim Clarke really amazes me. It’s just simple, yet refreshing. What do you think?
