Black Bathrooms

black bathroom decor ideas via belle vivir blog

Beauty is what beauty does! Meaning, in this case, that not all bathrooms need to be white in order to be beautiful.  When dark, good and exotic materials are utilized and mixed with contrasting elements as brass, light washed wood and a lot or just enough mirror the opulence of a dark bathroom is not only unique and normally unexpected but, it’s also seductive.   I’m in love with the Chinoiserie vanities of the bathroom above.  I also love the rustic unpolished floor and the detail of the different colors and size marble in the shower below.  It’s a total dream, isn’t it?  The bathroom, first and second images, belong to Kim Herbert, Harper’s Bazzaar uk editor via Elle Decor.  Enjoy!
