Create a little escape when you need one – glamorous and bohemian bathrooms

The world has seen better days. Tragedies, war, economic crisis, and everyday stress leave even the toughest of us in need of sanctuary. Somewhere one can go for warmth, solitude, and to literally and figuratively shed a new skin is vital to go out and face the world able to help shoulder it’s burdens and care for oneself.

I know that for me, a beautiful bathroom is a must, and it doesn’t necessarily take a whole lot to create a save haven where you can go in a little rough for wear and come out refreshed. I thought I’d share some photos that inspire me.

I love the “homey” feeling of this bathroom. The plants against the aqua blue is beautiful

These are all gorgeous, but my favorite is the first one. It looks so warm and cozy - the perfect place to get ready in the morning.

I have dreams of a soaking tub that welcomes the real human form. That one is truly incredible. Now, if only I could have a similar one with claw feet. It would, of course, be in a more traditional setting.

I'm in the middle (still) of a bath makeover and, yes, you're exactly right about wanting it to be an escape, an oasis. The two baths in my home have exactly the same facilities, but these days I head toward the one that's done and pretty. Can't wait to have two to choose from! Great inspiration here. Thanks.

I love these bathrooms, but the blinds in the final image are killing me! They could have done something better, I think.

You're right about the blinds - I would've picked something different!
