sitting here wondering what i might share with you today, when i came upon this great old neon sign on how to be a retronaut. and then it came to me – le bain, the loo, the bathroom – that place occasionally called the restroom. but one can only truly rest when one’s bathroom is decked out as luxuriously as we deserve (like with that lovely reclaimed tub caddy above) and perhaps a vintage clawfoot tub, so i’m rounding up some ideas for doing just that today. viva la bathroom, and a room to rest.

the guardian uk, via the english muse; a pretty bathroom or two from from lonny; a pretty private bath via yatzer; and morten holtum.

neville trickett’s bath; melanie acevedo; a couple more lovelies from lonny; and stylist laura fulmine.

  1. In all the old style clubs in India (think old British Raj-style members only places) the restrooms, were actually that. Places to rest and refresh yourself, maybe after a swim or tennis and before playing bridge or doing the foxtrot! The Delhi Gymkhana Club even has a beauty parlor in the ladies restroom and a barber in the men’s restroom.

  2. When I was married, my brother and I dumpster dived for an old clawfoot tub, and installed it in my giant bedroom ( I lived in a stucco bungalow). It was heaven, my boys and I could bathe, nap and play all in the same big, wonderful room. Those were the days! Thanks for bringing back the memory, Victoria.

  4. So lovely to see the bathroom from melanie acevedo! I remember seeing it in a magazine in a doctors waiting room a while back . I loved it so much I wanted to steal the magazine. It’s so nice to find out who the designer is xx

  5. Once again your post makes me want to do something completely spontaneous!!! in my case its take a relaxing bath which i never do (is it sad that baths are spontaneous for me?) ANYWAY thank you for the constant flow of great inspiration!!
