    Do you know why there is a Chaise Lounge in the first picture? It just seems out of place in the layout; plus it looks like it doesn’t meet code. Just curious. Thanks!

    Dunsmuir house in California is now an estate that’s open to the public. (Absolutely worth googling pics of the exterior—it’s gorgeous.) You can rent it for weddings and events… So maybe the lounge is for seating in a ladies’ room? Or just staging?

    I can’t say why they put it in there—but I wish my bathroom was sizeable enough for a large piece of furniture!!

      Why would this be in a book entitled “Bungalow Bathrooms?” Dunsmuir-Hellman mansion is hardly a bungalow. Unless this is in another building? Guess I will have to go visit and report back.

    Makes me want to put vintage elements in my bathroom…you’ve got me thinking about it! Thanks for the post.

      In your old house, that would be charming. I don’t think I’ve seen any photos of your bath on your blog?

        Sorry the reply is so late, I’m just discovering better ways to manage this blog! My bath is just a standard tub 🙁 but since you asked, I will work on those pics next!

    Victoria,
    Love it. I agree, the subway tile looks so finished with the cove molding. Counter space in a bathroom is essential to me, Hubby wanted pedestal sinks but he doesn’t have to set his mascara down for second while applying eyeliner! 🙂 Heated floors, I’m jealous!

      They don’t understand that juggling makeup and curling irons only works if you have seven hands… or some counter space!

    I love the modern touches you’re giving your bathroom. It’s all going to come together so beautifully. A little of the old with some of the new.. it makes for a great space. Honestly, these are awesome but yours will top them! All the thought you’ve put into the details will really make the design!

      Thanks Stacey! I’m a little anxious about the sconces we’ve chosen—they’re very modern, and I had to get them from two different sources, (no one had two in stock). So jury is still out on whether I made the right choice.

    I like that you pay attention to details the way you do. Adding a different tile at the bottom of the subway tile is a great idea. Most people wouldn’t consider that.

      I really wish one of these bathrooms were mine. I would absolutely love something with so much character. Especially the green and white one!

    floor tiles that are made of marble are simply elegant.`
