Beige-ing beauties

I must admit my dream bathroom, if it couldn't be done in Staturio or Calacatta marble like in the previous post (if I win the lottery maybe!), then top of my colour list would be Crema Marfil marble. Crema Marfil marble is a creamy delicious beige marble. It is the perfect beige - not too yellow, not too grey, not too dark and not too light - I'm starting to sound like a nursery rhymn. Just like the classic white washroom, beige is a timeless colour that can be accessorized to suit most any style from traditional to contemporary to modern. Here's a sample of clean lined beige washrooms.

Another great beige - pale limestone tiles were used in the above bathroom. Check out the nice detailing at the base of the shower, they added a 1/2 inch metal edge before the last row of tiles (you can find these at most hardware stores). It's the little details like this that really elevate a bathroom from ordinary to chic. The red flowers add a great punch of colour. Fushia would also look fantastic in this bathroom. For a quick change the red flowers can be switched for little white roses and add fushia coloured hand towels and some pretty perfume bottles et voila you have a girly girly bathroom.

Here's a great example of a way to save money and still end up with a cool bathroom. The vanity is made out of the same tiles as used to tile the room. Repetition, light colours and glass surfaces keeps this small washroom looking fresh and open. Not only are the floor, wall and shower tiles all the same, identical clear glass soap trays in groups of 3 are used in the shower and at the vanity. And the finishing touch for a clean lined washroom has to be this set of Artemide lamps.
Looking at these deep chocolate walls makes me crave some dark chocolate now! Love the undermount sink and how solid slabs were used to encase the tub and tub wall. A few different patterns of stone are going on here - from the countertop to the tub to the bamboo style floor tile, but it all pulls together nicely.
