In today’s fast paced life, where the everyday stress and strain can weigh you down, we find that there’s one place that can wash it all away and rejuvenate your spirit. We like to call this oasis “the perfect bathroom.”

This design project involved a sophisticated, well-traveled southern woman and her outdated master bath.
When we asked our client what she envisioned for her master bathroom, she responded with two words, “creamy and dreamy.” With that being our only direction, we decided to illustrate creamy and dreamy by revisiting a classic design that would exceed her expectations and give a new definition to these two words.

John Whitmarsh’s new collection of tiles for Cle is all about breaking boundaries. He has taken the raw, authentic textures of nature and handcrafted each individual tile to create unique tiles with imperfect surafces. His inspiration comes from those surfaces which one often overlooks- telephone poles, rough wood, street signs.  In an Q+A with the “tiles” in Interiors & Sources Magazine, they explain that “John pays homage of the beauty of our imperfections. He loves us just the way we are.” His tiles create a work of art on any surface and will give any space a completely unique look. The tile’s pet peeve? “Narrow-minded silly folks who think that tile needs to be shiny in order to be beautiful.”

The term “powder room” dates back to the early 18th century, when a closet sized room was used for people to have a private place to re-powder their wigs. That expression continued through the Victorian era. Since any bodily function was not talked about in public, ladies would excuse themselves to and “powder their noses”.

Today, with real estate being a competitive market, the powder room has become an essential selling point and a GREAT space to do something special….here are some of my favorites..
