Just thinking about our bathroom mirrors.  Want to have a bit of fun with this!

This has been my DREAM mirror for a while, since I saw it years ago on Elle Decor.  The simple line and the shape is just stunning.

The vintage mirror with chain-link hanger has also been one of the timeless fav.

A bit more traditional, but always a lover of GOLD~

Found this via Urban Gardens – and thought it can be perfect for our bathroom window garden!

Tub in bathroom

Couple post ago, I mentioned the free standing tub we are re-fitting into our space.  It’s much much more work than to just get a new tub, but having pieces of original home is worth the effort.

This is our parlor floor bathroom – planning on black tile floor and matte white subway tile walls, with toto toliet like our top unit.  The awesome West Elm sink we found last year is no longer available, so we need to search for something.

We decided to keep the old cast iron pedestal tub – and whew~  it’s been a lot of work.

– Re-coating the outside with black paint

– Re-glazing the inside

– figuring out placement in the room

– Searching to wall mounted tub trim with shower head

Will share with you photos over the weekend!  For now, here are some inspirations.

Parlar Floor bathroom lighting

Getting into the research madness and bliss as we are planning to start our reno in a month or so!  I’m collecting fixtures for our spaces.

Two choices for the guest bathroom on the main floor.  Momo says we should look for something exotic, moody.

egyptian arabesque lamp

crafted using time-honored techniques, the ornament of these egyptian spheres is inspired by traditional flowing arabesque designs. etched and pierced by hand, the patterns – held to symbolize infinity and eternity – cast dancing shadows on surrounding surfaces.

granada lantern

these glass lanterns are made in a generations-old workshop in granada, spain. each piece is hand forged, and reflects the influence of moorish design that can be observed throughout the region.

Both from here!

Which one do you like?
