Bathrooms lend themselves to personalization due to the function they serve. A bathroom should be a place where an individual, alone and at rest, feels completely comfortable, content and calm, no matter what image the greater space endeavors to project. Here are the ones that caught our attention lately.
Not everyone has the luxury of an enormous shower room like the one pictured here, but that doesn't mean that we can't take inspiration from its striking décor. Large slate gray tiles look great even in a small room, as large tiles generally increase the look of space in confined quarters. In this example, striking color is washed over the top of the sombre ceramics in the form of bright blue LED lighting. LED lights are great for use in bathrooms, and programmable sets will even allow you to change their color to suit your mood or the time of day.
In the spirit of highly individual design, the 'Be Yourself' contest, brainchild of industry leaders, challenged visualizers to create the ultimate bathroom. This concept by Deluxe Home Creation Studio was the viewer's favorite and it's not difficult to see why. However, starting with images of grandeur is not such a bad idea. Even for a personal/residential project it is possible to gain inspiration from images such as these and scale them down to fit comfortably within standard spaces, keeping elements such as a simple water feature or simulated rain shower as part of the fundamental ideal.

What should we do if the space to renovate is long and narrow? Decorating such spaces can be a bit puzzling but it's possible to create a fantastic look with style. This bathroom is a good example of such renovating, just look how fresh, luminous and modern it is!
Sometimes choosing a theme for a room can be the best inspiration for getting it to feel exactly how you'd like it. For bedrooms, one great theme is going with a country vibe that will make you forget the bustle of life outside the bedroom door. Keep the walls sunny and bright by choosing a pale yellow paint color and decorate with landscape photographs and light wooden furniture. Use antique touches, like a delicate chandelier and curvy nightstands to make sure the room doesn't feel too old-fashioned or frumpy.
This swivel stool is great for a space with geometric accents but it can also serve as a fantastic focal point when surrounded by clean lines as pictured. Vintage-finished brass legs and waxed wood seats work equally well within rustic environments or simple contemporary settings. Natural wood finish, sleek curved legs, and minimalist construction make these stools a nice statement piece for any interior, especially if you're working around similar natural wood tones you might want to emphasize.
