Architect Greg Tankersley and designer Carol Egan conjured a Greenwich retreat that's the perfect blend of pastoral comfort and urban style, with the master bath as perfect proof. The tub by Kohler has fittings by Waterworks, the Hans J. Wegner stool is from Wyeth and the 1970s Luigi Caccia pendant light is from Bernd Goeckler. The Thassos floor tile is from Fordham Marble and the walls are sheathed in Venetian plaster.
Clean up clutter and give your bathroom a farmhouse look at the same time with these distressed mason jar containers. It is so easy to distress a mason jar. You just paint them white, or a light blue or gray, and then use sandpaper to distress them. These are perfect for holding any number of bathroom essentials and really do have a gorgeous rustic look. Take a look at this set that I found on Etsy for inspiration, or you can grab these for just $30 for a set of six.

Over the past four years we have gotten to know the owners and employees at Ace as they helped us through having water in the basement and so many other issues. Each time we come in, they spoil the girls! We spend a lot of time buzzing around there getting supplies for our latest project or quick fix. They offer everything we need and more importantly, are so helpful when I wander in alone and have no idea what I need.
"A dark bathroom balanced with white is a great way to go. Hale Navy is one of my all-time favorite colors. It works perfectly with marble or white cabinetry. White is such a crucial color to consider in a bathroom because it always feels fresh and clean. The darker navy tone also works perfectly with the warmer metal trends like brass and copper."
The first step of yours in picking a color pattern for the bathroom of yours is going to be determining whether the home will show color through color or maybe accent decor. Should you choose to paint a wall a daring color, like white, odds are that you are going to need to tone down the decoration a bit and so as never to overwhelm the room. Should you go with a more basic wall color, such as twine or perhaps gray, you could be a bit much more inventive with the color of the decor.
Adding color to a bathroom doesn’t need to be bright or showy. Choose a light mint color for a lush backdrop. If you pair this with white countertop and cabinets, you’ll have a clean look that lets you play with the floor design. Simple colors also give you the flexibility to accessorize with other pops of color in the guest baskets, towels and decor.

"I always start with the stone when designing a bathroom, and that begins to inform the color palette. Pale Oak partners well with most marbles, enhancing the vein in the marble, but equally works to soften a dark tile. Be careful, it can go gray or beige depending on the light. Personally I love that about it, but depending on the space, it can be tricky."
