BATHROOM STYLING: ADDING ART

I spent a good portion of my week styling bathrooms/powder rooms and it had me thinking about how to spruce up even the most basic of bathrooms. Of course you can add the typical countertop accessories (jars, baskets, small vases, trays), but what about adding the unexpected: art! Yes, some people have a frame or two on the walls, but adding a bunch of art to one wall or frames leaning against a wall are typically not seen in bathrooms but look amazing!

I love this neutral space seen in Architectural Digest - the brown tones, paired with a gallery wall and fresh purple blooms keep the space bright and airy without being the typical 'stark' white.

This bathroom has a fun gallery wall with some nude sketches and an antique-looking stool/chair that pairs well with the paneling on the wall. You can see the mix in the space below - new vanity and glass shower, with more vintage inspired accessories! Love the mix - don't be afraid to try it!

I love the look of the leaning frame against the window. In an all-white bathroom, think about adding frames in metallic or wood tones.

This space is FANTASTIC! Tons of art and extra pieces that you don't necessarily see in bathrooms (lamp & wooden chest of drawers)

One of my favourite bathrooms from Pencil & Paper Co. So much detail!

A full gallery wall from floor to ceiling! Maybe too busy for some people, but I LOVE it! The key here is to mix different frames and what you put in the frames, but at the same time try and keep a cohesive colour palette. 

Not art, but look at that vintage clock on the countertop. Makes perfect sense to add to the bathroom if you are always getting ready in there and could use help with keeping track of time! Paired with gold candlesticks, monogrammed hand towels and detailed wood chair, this all marble bathroom MIGHT be one of my favourites EVER!
