Country style bathroom love

Bathrooms don’t usually get a lot of space here at Decorator’s Notebook but I just spied this one on Pinterest and it really floats my boat. It looks about the same size and layout of my bathroom – unfortunately I inherited one that was almost brand new when I moved in so I can’t really justify re-doing it. But if I did I’d love it to look like this…

I think what appeals to me is that it’s not actually decorated that much like a bathroom. No mosaic tiles (which I have in mine), no flourescent bathroom lighting (which I also have), no plastic sink unit (you’re getting the picture, right?). I love the natural touches too – the wood, the vintage taps and baskets. This is a bathroom that says ‘relaxing’ to me more than any ‘spa-like’ limestone clad room ever could.

PS – how are we all feeling about Pinterest recently? I notice that they’ve almost entirely divorced the images you pin from their source – the link that used to take you to the website/blog a picture was originally grabbed from has been replaced with an internal link and it takes a fair amount of perseverance to track the external link down. To me this is really naughty… having a clear link between image and source was one of the main things that made Pinterest useful and as someone who believes strongly in giving credit where credit’s due, I have real problems with the ethics of their most recent change. What do you think? What can we do about it?

    Yes I am a bit confused about Pinterest, too. I really like the concept but I am unsure about what they are doing in the background right now.

    As for the bathroom, you´re right, it is very lovely. I think the one thing I regret having bought a house that has been refurbished by the previous owner is that we have to live with their choices now for at least a while. It isn´t too bad though… however, one day I want a bathroom like this… with wooden flooring, a vintage tub and as few tiles as possible (in my opinion, tiles are very overrated..).

    Btw LOL about your plastic sink unit – in one of our bathrooms we have a plastic tub – what is wrong with people?! ;)
