Bathrooms to die for

I have always loved designing bathrooms. This is one of my favorite rooms of the house! As a child I have always loved the intimate atmosphere of this room, where I could spend some time for myself. And it never changed!

Yesterday I was browsing my ‘bathroom’ file, to find some inspirational images in order to prepare a bathroom design for one of my clients.

I would love to share with you some of my favorite bathroom designs

. I have always preferred a classic styled batrhoom as the ones on these images.

Another one of my favorite designers is Barry Dixon. I was so enchanted by these images of one of Barry’s bathroom designs I discoverd at my friend Trish of the beautiful blog Trouvas! Here.

Indeed a new bathroom with an old theme.15-1  Designer Barry Dixon source Trouvais

I am in the middle of preparing the design of a bathroom that is rather more a small ‘cabinet de toilette’. Our client prefers to see a French styled design.

These are only first sketches. I am still working on it!
