An all-white bathroom may be timeless, but it’s also completely expected. Instead, dare to go dark, like in this bathroom featured in Barbara Sallick’s The Perfect Bath. To keep the look seductive without feeling scary, try an airy, open console and clean and classic basket- weave flooring. A round side chair is feminine and functional (especially when it’s upholstered in an indoor/outdoor fabric). Don’t forget the art: a black- and-white reproduction photograph of Portland factory owners sets a romantic, retro scene. “The master bath is the only space in your home that is all about you,” says Sallick. Why not add some personality?
