WHY IT WORKS - A PB Inspired Bathroom

Happy Monday!  This is a stunning bathroom.  What I love best about it is the use of real stand alone furniture pieces that really help to warm up the whole space.  Let's face it, we all spend a lot of time in here, it should be just as beautiful as all the other areas of our home.


  • Single wall mounted mirrors.  I really think these mirrors are such a nice upgrade from the one mirror panel found in most homes.  If you're remodeling or building a home, this is a great place to upgrade.  It's high impact.
  • Vanity.  I love that this vanity looks like a real piece of furniture, but it isn't.  It adds character and warmth and the exposed legs really help to lift it up off the ground. 
  • Baskets.  Texture is a key design principle that makes a subtle, but big difference in the feel of a room.  The wire baskets in this room are really beautiful.

  • Decorative containers.  I spend a lot of time trying to find really beautiful ways to store and display everyday objects.  It makes such a big visual impact.  Glass canisters, jars, woven baskets and trays are everywhere and at every price point.  Take the extra effort, you'll really enjoy the difference.
  • Lighting.  A good rule of thumb is to mount vanity lighting on the side of the mirrors rather than on top.  The lighting is just much more flattering.
  • Bath mats and rugs.  Consider using regular rugs instead of bathmats.  I really like the look of this natural woven rug in this room.  You'll want to stay away from wool and stick to natural woven rugs, indoor/outdoor rugs or cotton rugs.
