Guest Post: Romancing the Bathroom

Hi Folks! I'm in Boston visiting my son at college this weekend. While I'm in Boston, Susi from Design Shuffle is writing a post for me...I think you'll love the info (and pics) she shares:

Hi, I'm Susi, a writer for Design Shuffle, a fabulous social media site for design lovers that promotes interior designers and their work from around the world. I love visiting all these amazing bloggers and seeing the incredible posts they do on design and their own design projects. So much creativity! Today I'll be writing about romancing the bathroom.  The bathroom is such a utilitarian room in our home it is hard to think of it having a romantic style but these romantic bathrooms show it is possible with great decorating ideas.  Enjoy!

A gorgeous antique mirror and crystal chandelier add romance to this white bathroom. Imagine the sparkling light of the chandelier reflected in the mirror at night. Beautiful.

Nothing says romance like a soaking tub for two. This huge tub is centered in the room under a crystal chandelier and faces an incredible view through a wall of French doors.

Romantic pink and warm cream create feminine palette in this bathroom. Floral curtains add a soft touch, as does the wall sconce lighting.

A fireplace mantel creates a focal point frame around the claw foot tub in this romantic shabby chic style bathroom.  Love the mix of natural woods and white painted furniture.

The New Home Decor via
Shabby chic style creates a romantic feeling in this bathroom. Love the canopy above the tub that creates privacy from the window. Gorgeous linens add luxury to bathroom designs.

House Beautiful via
The arched cove for the tub and arched window give this bathroom a romantic European feeling. Fresh flowers in the bath, or any room, add a romantic touch.

Candlelight is always romantic no matter the room. A candlelit bath in a deep soaking tub is not only romantic but oh so relaxing. Love the softly draped curtain separating the tub from the rest of the bath.

Romantic Bathroom via
A fireplace in the bathroom is perhaps the ultimate in bathroom design ideas for romancing the bathroom. Soft lighting, luxurious finishes and plush linens also add romantic touches to a bathroom.
