"I will not apologize for being glamorous."




That is what I think this bathroom is trying to tell us.

Don't you think though...that this will get very dated fairly fast? Not that long ago people were using green and even earth-tone marble ALL over the bathroom. While marble itself is a beautiful thing, the colors come in and out. I think less is more. On the floor or just on the wall..yes. But all over reads mistake.

Anon 10:52 I don't agree. What could be more timeless than Carrarra marble? I think it is stunning and in 100 years will look just as good as the bathrooms in the homes in Newport RI.

Aargh. Not MORE marble.

I think it's sassy, and the headline sums it up perfectly.

I thought Cararra sp? was whiter than this. This seems brown-er. Still pretty but I'm not sure it's cararra (I hear it's hard to find now). It does seem a little overdone but for today it is striking!

and even though it's not my cup of tea...I thank you for posts! It's nice to see some inspiration again post election.

I think it is saying:

"Oh come on, one more line. What can it hurt?..."

Ivy Lane said...

YES! Gimme more marble!

I'm wondering about logistics. How do you hang photos, mirrors, sconces, etc. From picture mouldings?

sort of like "Give me more zebra," was a few months ago.

I won't apologize for loving them.

Love the photos of Picasso, right? in the bottom photo.

Have still not quite worked up to the black crystal chandi...but they look nice here.

No, don't like the sconces, love the sinks!

Don't get me wrong--the bathroom and tile is gorgeous. What I do not understand is the lack of cabinetry with sinks these days. I live in a house with only frickin pedestal sinks. Not only is there no place to store anything, I have to look at the exposed pipes peeking out. Give me a nice solid surface that holds more than a guest soap and a cabinet beneath to hide the plumbing and the TP.

I am cracking up that "the homes of Newport" is now the new aesthetic standard to reach for. I picture someone at Home Depot, asking the paint clerk, "Do you have something more...von Bulow?"

Ha!

I just started a bathroom remodel and ALL I want is MARBLE!!! Carrara, please, thank you. Except I think it's even more gorgeous when it's kept as a huge slab. Stunning.

I'd love to see it without the black-and-white photographs on the walls. The photographs scream "Please publish me, O Great Shelter Magazine!!!"

Is this in a hotel room?
Not to nit pick but the first thing I notice about this bathroom is that the p-trap & supplies are polished chrome & don't match the polished nickel faucet. Why would you go all out making a bathroom so conspicuously luxe & then not bother to spring for matching nickel supplies when they are exposed like this? It drives me nuts!

The faucets are so Kelly Wearstler.

I love the bathroom even though I think those sinks will date FAST - I don't even like them now ( and they're everywhere! ) Nothing wrong with being Glam - we all should stive for it more!

This bathroom looks like it belongs in a courthouse (with all the marble).

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
