Today, sleigh beds offer more than design; they offer quality materials, comfort and aesthetics, as well as a reason to be proud of your bedroom design that accentuates the perfect shape of the bed. Having passed the test of time, sleigh beds are often regarded as strong visual accents that set the bedroom’s ambiance.

A stone bathtub is a very beautiful choice. It has a unique texture and usually rich colors. It would be a perfect centerpiece for the bathroom.
Lealia Lesage Bathroom, 2017-06-09 14:25:44. The heart of your bathroom is the bathtub. If you have a freestanding bath, one that is not recessed or positioned next to the walls, then why not go for a red one? An old fashioned claw footed bathtub can be given a highly contemporary twist with a splash of red to update it. Complete the look with a funky wallpaper design or some red tiles on either the floor or the walls. Going heavy handed with red can make for a bathroom that is too oppressive, visually speaking. Nevertheless, with a subtle touch a very red bathroom can be pulled off. Select small tiles that have a highly reflective surface so the color does not appear to be even in all light conditions. Use plenty of light fittings, which should be bright white, and set to shine over the red surfaces. Break up your red walls with sections of pure white. Go for a white floor and white closet doors.

In the case of the bathroom, that accent can be the sink. Whether it stands out with its color, shape, texture or design, the sink can become the focal point of the bathroom without much effort. Sometimes the best way to make something stand out is to go back to the basics and use simple materials in a unique way. For example, this stone vessel sink has a very interesting design. Its natural, organic shape along with the use of natural stone as the main material make this sink a wonderful accent feature for any bathroom.

When they were asked to design an extension for a house in Bedford Hills, NY that dated back to 1974, Robert Siegel Architects envisioned the new structure as a modern, bright and open volume, with the new master bedroom framed by floor-to-ceiling windows and with a small terrace on the side. That’s exactly how they designed it. This is the Observation House, a structure situated on a hill, in the highest portion of a village in Bulgaria. The site was chosen for its panoramic views and the landscape that surrounds so, naturally, the I/O Architects team looked for ways to highlight these features and to turn them into focal points. They managed to do that by designing the house with glass walls on all sides.

Shower curtains are a great option for bathrooms that don’t want to install glass enclosure doors or don’t have enough room for the swing of the door. Many shower curtains install on low profile tracks on the ceiling to enable the curtain to stay open while making your bathroom feel larger. Also consider adding a valance or hang a decorative fabric for a formal approach to your bathtub/shower area. These curtains can also have a liner placed behind the fabric curtain to ensure water doesn’t damage the valance and decorative curtain.

It can take years to find the ideal location but when you do everything falls into place. For this residence designed by Hassell, it was the site and views that shaped the building. What better way to enjoy a spot in the mountains with views over the tree tops than from inside a cozy home that has a floor-to-ceiling window positioned just right…This seems to also be the idea that Fearon Hay Architects had when they designed this retreat in Queenstown, New Zealand.

Also, there’s something about the simplicity of their shape that makes them look very delicate and more sophisticated. After all, the tub is like a piece of furniture. It has to match the décor and if you love it you just have to have it.
