We're still a long ways off from our bathroom reno, but that hasn't stopped me from dreaming of what the space will one day look like. Right now it's a pretty standard out-of-the-box design, slapped inside a 1920s house. My plan is to resurrect some of the original character of the home in the design, with vintage inspired features and accents. 

The crowning jewel will be the clawfoot tub, and everything else in the room will take it's cues from this element. Layer in creamy subway tile, a delicately patterned floor, and you're on your way to bathroom gold. I'm still vacillating between white and black grout, but luckily I have time to decide on all that.

Next to the tub, the sink is probably the next most important thing to decide on. Recently console sinks have caught my eye, and I think the right style will complement the tub perfectly. They feel really timeless and the extra space under the sink will be a perfect spot to put a basket full of towels or extra amenities for guests.

And because no room in my house will be without a healthy dose of color - I'm thinking a lush floral wallpaper will set off the creamy whites in the room beautifully. I love the eclectic feel of this mood board and hope that when the time comes we can accomplish something close to this vision. -b.
