Yes or no?

Maybe. It looks nice, but wouldn't the humidity from the bath be bad for the painting?

Laura Zeck said...

Yes!

Laura Zeck said...

Yes!

I love how counterdependant you are. I think you need to pick your tile style. white tile with dark gray grout is wonderful, but perhaps a bit busy when mixed with spanish majorca esque tile. I like the portrait with the spanish tile and the bath. Its just the 4x4 white tile that seems to be a bit out of place. I relate.

Why not? Chacun a son gout.

Maureen Sullivan Stemberg, Interiors said...

Yes! Unless, the portrait is of the woman who resides there.

Nancy Cameron said...

Oui

(you didn't say it had to be in English)

Amy said...

Almost.

Veronica said...

Love the mix maybe in blue?

Decorno said...

susana - so cruel! :)
I am a solid no for me, if someone else wants this look, more power.

Jessica said...

The styling is OK, I guess, as long as you don't look at the modern tub, but the tile looks like a mullet: business on the walls, party on the floor.

Claire said...

I love the way the floor tile resembles a rug. So, yes.

Kerry @ Design du Monde said...

Floor tile-Yes, Painting -Yes, green desky thing-Yes, Tub and wall tile -NO WTF?

Doug Davis said...

Yes. I am into brick joint stacked square tile lately. The painting is not my speed, but bitching about that like those people on those real estate shows who won't buy houses because they don't like the color of the bedroom.

amvance said...

I agree with the others who said the 4x4 tiles are out of place...

Not one thing right in this picture. "ICK"! and "OOPS!"

This should be taught in "decorating school" as a "don't"!!!

Unfortunately.....there is no really good "decorating school"

Now watch everyone insist "Interior Designer" is the correct term!

Mark Hampton, Sister Parish, Albert Hadley, Mario Buatta.......Nancy Lancaster......"decorators"!

penelopebianchi said...

What in the world does "counter dependent" mean??

I have been around a long time in the decorating world......I have not encountered that word......

Please.....I need to know?

My first thought also was about humidity and the painting.
I like the floor tiles; the wall tiles less so.
My bathroom (no tub, just shower) is about the size of an airplane loo, so I envy the size of this room.
Something I see in deco magazines here in France are bathrooms that are IN the bedroom, separated by a half wall, or nothing at all. Just a tub with shower attachment in the corner. They do that here--you shower sitting down in the tub. But I always make a lake on the floor anyway. And I always think: how icky to be in a steamy bedroom, with that humidity all over the bedsheets.
If you want, I'll send you pictures, so you can decide.

my favorite and my best- MFAMB to you said...

fuck yes!!

although. i hadn't really noticed the wall tiles being square-ish. so maybe just HELL YES!

Ivy Lane said...

Yes on the tile, No on the portrait..

smells like nouveau style

Nix the green stool and put in a cast iron tub and it is a yes for me. Love the floor tile. I have been trying to have clients use these concrete tiles for awhile now. Not only fun, but very practical. The color runs all the way through the tile. Couple great companies: Popham and Villa Lagoon.

Now that's my kind of gallery.

Kwana said...

I can say yes to everything, but that stool too be right off the page.

Shawna and Anon May 25, 2012 12:49 AM, an oil painting will do OK in a bathroom. Think about it, Venice was the artistic center of Europe for centuries, and it is basically a gigantic bathtub.

a thousand times, yes!

Would everyone--including you, Jessica--please stop with the "Business in the front, party in the back" shit?

maybe they were trying to work around the tiles? you know, do the best you can, where you are, with what you have, kinda thing? i love the floor, but it could have gone 'quieter' and had more impact.

Jules said...

hahahahaha. NO.

The square tile looks government issued. I don't want to be reminded of the DMV when I bathe.
And the strong pattern on the floor is too much (for me) to feel like retreat.

The painting is pretty funny but better suited to a powder room than the masterbawth. Unless that's a self-portrait in which case, God bless.

LisaY said...

Yes! And I really like the square tiles...getting tired of subway rectangles. enough different stuff going on that some dirty clothes and toys on the floor wouldn't look so out of place

Lisa said...

No. I don't care for the tiled wall.

betina luna said...

It's a yes! Go for it!

ginafly said...

Yes. I think the mishmash of styles is fun. But the painting...really, an oil painting of an old dude to watch you take a bath? Wait, is it a dude?

ginafly said...

Okay, clearly a woman. Still creepy.

LB said...

yes

Gabriella said...

A tad conflicted and precious. No! In my humble and uneducated opinion, people can hang any darn thing on a bathroom wall - it is not a chapel, for heaven's sake - anything in a bathroom could be functional, used daily, not superfluous, and maybe provide some comic relief (aside from other forms of relief). My corrugated and sagging contours would be so definitely out of place in this self-conscious mishmash of a "facility". Quelle blague!
