Bathrooms with Personality

I was looking through the new Coastal Living 2009 Idea House (Seawatch, North Carolina) and the bathrooms stopped me in my tracks. I love the combination of traditional and a little unexpected. The mirrors and sconces make each of the bathrooms fun.

I love the black mirrored vanity in the master bathroom and the choice of putting in a glass tile back splash instead of the usual one that matches the counter top. I must say, I dislike those. But what really makes this room fun is the tall mirrors and sconces. I like how the sconces aren't in the normal expected place either.

This is the guest bath. While I couldn't live with the purple palette, it is fun. The designer, Phillip Sides, had a custom chest made by J.Tribble Antiques and had a slab cut to mirror the shape which adds some personality to the room. But, again what makes it sing is the fun mirrors and one oversized sconce. He could have easily put in two sconces on each side of the mirrors which would have been the expected and traditional solution. The end result is a bathroom that's pretty and playful.

So if you're looking for an easy way to add personality to your bathroom, look beyond the traditional offerings and add accessories, in this case mirrors and sconces, that add personality.
