I may be dating myself but when I was growing up it was not uncommon for a small house to have one bathroom.  I was an only child so that worked out for my family—I believe I probably hogged the bathroom when I hit my teens but by then we had moved and I had a bathroom all to myself.

This isn’t our family bathroom, ours was white, but this is not unlike the bathroom I grew up with.

Our bathroom was very utilitarian with a bathtub/shower, toilet and vanity with a medicine cabinet above the sink…bathrooms have come a long way baby.

We all decorate our bathrooms much like any room.  Wallpaper beautiful sconces and special touches, like a bouquet of fresh flowers.

Then there’s this…

Joe & Max (aka 3D Joe & Max) are artists who have traveled the globe creating their artworks for a range of clients including Google, Disney, Reebok, Save the Children and Coca-Cola.

Isn’t this amazing?  I’m not sure I’d want it for my bathroom at home, but I could certainly see the appeal if it was on a hotel bathroom floor in Hawaii, or some other tropical destination.

The inspiration for this post came by way of my friend Joyce who sent me these pictures of painted floors {thank you, Joyce}.

So, back to my reality where bathroom decor is concerned…

I enjoy getting ideas for bathrooms as much as any other room in the house.  You never know when you might want to redo your bath. 🙂

I love the collage of mirrors and the piece of furniture for the oversized sink.  The wall faucets are a trend (?) I really like.

Even a smaller space carries big style with free floating shelves and this great vessel sink

I remember the first time I saw a frameless shower door.  I thought it was so great.  This one has a frame at the top, but still, what a beautiful way to encase the shower without it looking like a giant box sitting in the room.

This is one of my favorite beautifully designed bathrooms.  I’m not sure Mr. B. would want to use this bathroom, even better.  It seems to me we should all have our own bathrooms anyway! 🙂

In juxtaposition to the very feminine feel of the bathroom above, I actually love this more rustic bath.  Shown during the Trad Home Napa Valley  tour of 2014, compliments of Cindy at rough luxe style.  Follow the link for more of this beautiful house.

Do you think you’d have someone paint a 3-D image of the ocean with a shark swimming by in your bathroom, or do you go for a more traditional look?
