Classic Traditional Bathroom

Classic design elements work in this bathroom to create a lovely traditional style space.  Traditional design elements like molding, marble and wallpaper are timeless.  A large soaking tub replaces the traditional claw foot tub but has the same feeling.  Blue and white, or in this case, blue and cream, is a traditional color combination and works perfectly in a bathroom.  Blue and white feels clean and fresh.

Wallpaper is a huge trend in design and it doesn’t appear to be cooling off.  Powder rooms and other small spaces are great to try out the wallpaper in your home before you decide to wallpaper a living room or bedroom.  Even doing a single wall in these larger rooms can create a big impact. Wallpaper in the bathroom can be a little trickier given the humidity of the room. Make sure you have a good fan for ventilation.

This whimsical wallpaper features flower and vine motif. The blue and cream wallpaper above a chair rail with cream painted wood below is a look we often see in a dining room or entry.  It also works in the bathroom. Carrying the cream color and wood molding around the tub is a smart design touch.

Make sure the floor relates to the rest of the design in a bathroom since all design elements are important in a small space.
