My name is Cynthia and I love interior design, architecture, antiques, all things vintage, all things British (a tried and true Anglophile), a love of things that are time worn and hold secrets of days gone by. I love animals and try to respect their place in our world. I enjoying talking about the most beautiful places in the world, some exotic, some in our own neck of the woods. I love family and friends, music and movies. And most importantly, I love talking about these things with a daily dose of humor because I love to laugh and we all deserve to. So come on...let's go for a stroll.

Rub a Dub Dub - Dream Baths

Bathrooms continue to be a huge factor in house hunting these days.  I personally think that some of the bathrooms in the mega-mansions being built today are ridiculous.  But then, I think just about all of the mega-mansions are ridiculous. I would much rather have an older house with character than these big boxes full of granite, tile, dark wood and no personality.  I must admit that, even though I love my master bath, it is a bit on the small side.  If it weren't for all of the lovely plaster work and murals that have been done over the years, it could definitely pass for one of the bathrooms in a box that you see so often these days.  I should have taken pictures to post here, but that can be for another post someday.  But wouldn't a warm bath be wonderful on a cold day like today? I might just have to take one.  In the meantime, here's some baths that I find very inspiring...for bubbles and for just looking so lovely all by themselves.  I have had many of these photos saved to my laptop for quite some time so I don't have photo or design credits but if you recognize any of these interiors, please let me know and I will add the information.  Enjoy

What's not to love in this bath? Aqua and white claw foot tub, lots of white and beautiful views

Gray and white - lovely

Wayyy beyond anything I could ever imagine - so amazing

I love the dark plank flooring paired with all of the white in this bath

A fireplace in the bath - ahhh

So feminine and a fat upholstered chair... love the beaded board around the tub

I like everything about this bath - the door with the big hardware, casement window, panelling

Parisian Bath by Christopher Noto

Not much privacy but who cares?

A big bath tub and nature all rolled into one

Venetian glass chest, love the curved walls - so old Hollywood

And last but not least, the ducks...I love this picture and had to include it.

Wow! Those baths look like a dream! Anyone would definitely love to have a relaxing moment in those spaces, and soothe their tired body after a day of hard work. All those photo-inspirations look great, but my vote goes to photo #8. The bathroom looks bright, laid back and relaxing. The natural light coming from the casement windows make the space inviting and easy on the eyes.
