On Monday, I was pretty sure I knew exactly what we would do with our bathroom. I'm going for something a little masculine, because we have a more feminine guest bath. I also want it to tie in to the era and feel of the rest of the house; so here are the inspiration images that I've been working with:

I decided making a mock-up would be the best way to pull together all these ideas running around in my head to see a rough idea of how everything looks together. I would also add in some fun accessories like vintage baskets, brass soap dishes, and a white shower curtain with fretwork. Plus, I found a really fun pattern for the hexagonal floor tiles that I'm hoping our contractor can re-create.

Then, reading my September issue of House Beautiful, I was reminded of Miles Redd's amazing door:
Which got me to thinking that if we went with chrome and painted the console the perfect shade of robin's egg blue, it might keep the basic look of the bath just with a hint of color. I'd also throw in some more black accents to make the look a little more cohesive

After pulling both boards together, I think I've made my decision about which bathroom I'm leaning towards, but I'm interested to hear what you think. Any preferences?
