A Neutral Bath

Isn't that photo like a breath of fresh air?  (yes, I know it's a bathroom - ha ha ha - but stick with me)

It's from an amazing home that belongs to D.C.-based interior designer Lauren Liess who happens to have an amazing blog as well.  Everything is so textured and tasteful, neutral but not at all bland.  I would like to give her a call if I ever built my own home...

Here's why I like it so much:

1) Those sconces  - Love the chain pulls, the brass with the black, the contemporary shade on the more traditional fixture...the scale is perfect for making them a true statement in the bathroom

2) The vanity - The vintage look of the weather-worn dresser with antique cup pulls, and all as a vanity??  Crazy good.

3) The mirror - I admittedly have a thing for simple mirrors with metal edges, and I love that this one is rectangular but with rounded corners.

4) The wall-mount faucet - The perfect mix of old and new...the faucet itself looks vintage but the way it's been mounted from a white stone (marble??) backslash is so modern and cool.

5) The tile - The white classic subway tiles with dark grout in the shower, check!!  Dark slate subway tiles on the floor, check check!

6) The herringbone rug - I don't think I will ever tire of a classic herringbone pattern, especially in black and cream.

7) The stool - nothing adds texture to a simple neutral bath more than a well-placed vintage wood stool.  The patina adds such authenticity to the design.

What about you like this bathroom as much as I do?  What are your favorite features?

If you think the bathroom looks good, you should see the kitchen before & after.  It will make you want a full house tour.  Lauren has mad skills!
