Boy oh boy, have we ever got the blues… but we don’t want to trade them for anything. Instead, we’ll just bathe a few bathroom walls in them. Perfect timing to cool a space down for summer, no?
One of our favorite fellow design blogs, Design*Sponge, shares a sneak peek (above) into the bathroom of Kelly Osborne of See Jane Work, an office organization and style site, with its sweet cottage blue cabinetry and miniature subway tiles.
There’s a purity about the space, just as there is in the classic American bathroom shared by Better Homes and Gardens. The beveled windows, walnut-hued finish-outs and small bursts of silver keep the light blue hue defined and contrasted against, giving it a balance between masculine and feminine.
Of course, there’s the other end of the spectrum as well, as illustrated in these two rooms; they’re practically lunar, they’re so sleek, dark and minimalistic. We suspect these are the sorts of bathrooms in which one listens to classic rock or smooth R&B when getting ready for an evening out; a distinctive sound with a discerning curve could find its place bouncing off of tiles like these in spaces with few fabrics to absorb sound.
Something tells us there’s a resounding absence of, say, Yanni:
Whether inspired by sky, sea or something else altogether, a blue bathroom does nothing if not provide a calming effect. And in a space where we start and end the day, that’s a perk with which we wouldn’t mind showering ourselves.
