Black Bathrooms

I have black bathrooms on the brain. They are moody and sexy, yet somehow relaxing all at the same time. It all started with Jenna Lyons' bathroom that everyone fell in love with when it appeared in Domino back in 2008, and from there, my obsession has only grown and grown.

I love Emily's recently unveiled powder room in the last image. It actually reminds me a lot of this powder room I designed for school a year ago! (read more about the project here and here) :

How do you guys feel about the whole black bathroom thing? Would you, could you?

I love it! Like you said, it's moody but somehow feels relaxing. Jenna's is totally the quintessential example. Loving Emily's floral wallpaper - so funny how similar your gorgeous design is!

I've actually been thinking about doing my bathroom black. BUT I've heard that it shows all the watermarks and other not so pretty things in a bath. And after I painted my closet black I have to say the marks and stains aren't pretty.
But I really want a black bath!! ;) Love the look

i love this look as well. It is soothing and sophisticated. I love the round-up you did...adored all the bathrooms!

Love them! Bathrooms are such a small space and can certainly make their own stand alone statement. Love the fact that you can play with prints, patterns and colours on a smaller scale and pack a huge punch! What a wonderful set of images you've pulled together!

Hey !!

I love the black bathroom idea, especially cool with that really striking wallpaper! I think the bathroom is one room where it is ok to go black, having a bath in the dark with candles in a black room would be so relaxing and I also think that black ceramic tiles look amazing so YES to black bathrooms !! I love your plan for a bathroom too, your layout sketch is great !
