Sure, there are rules (every room should have a focal point; the color puce looks as bad as it sounds), but when you break a few, interesting things happen. While the elements here are mostly traditional—the stained wood floor, framed mirror, woven laundry hamper, double-handled faucet—adding a few mod touches, like the zigzag rug and pendants, gives the room a fresh personality. Clearly, someone’s been decorating out of the box.
Minimal is the message in this stunning bathroom that makes the most of a few key objects. The beauty of a square vessel sink becomes more defined when set atop a rustic painted wood table. A simple gold-braided towel looks luxurious in a graphic stainless rack. Other accessories, from the curvy chrome faucet to the round mirror to the woven basket, band together, as if in a museum still life. But here, the sink actually works.
Can we talk about double sinks for a moment? They can be a relationship saver. Not bumping elbows while brushing your teeth prevents squabbles about toothpaste rights. This bathroom is pretty perfect for that reason alone, but this space has so many other good things going for it, too: the generous vanity, granite countertop, stylish pulls, impressive lighting fixtures and glossy faucets. Did we mention the double sinks?
If you’re lucky enough to have a bathroom with lots of space, don’t feel obligated to fill it with stuff. The luxury of so many uncluttered square feet is what makes this room so appealing; you could practically hold a limbo contest in here. The green wallpaper’s lively pattern is the main decorating element, a sure-handed gesture that doesn’t overwhelm. The bathtub, with a marble surround and graceful faucet, is tucked into the corner, adding surprising intimacy to such a generous space.

We borrowed a page from an art deco playbook for a bath that feels sleek and glamorous. Big black floor tiles set the stage for the dramatic décor. The polished ebony vanity is reminiscent of the period’s allegiance to geometric design, while black columns are a noteworthy nod to architectural influences.
