The Bathroom by Diane Berger by Abbeville Press, Inc.
The home's most utilitarian room can often be the hardest to decorate properly. How do you reconcile the essentials (tub, shower, sink, toilet) and the fundamentals (mirror, towel rack, storage cabinets) with the desire for an attractive, even elegant space for pampering, primping, or taking a long, soul-renewing soak?
The exquisite photos gathered here will show you how, as you peek into beautiful bathrooms ranging from streamlined, ultra-efficient modern to French provincial or English cottage charm to the dramatically theatrical.
Discover how to work wonders with the basic elements; stylish ways to highlight functionality or to mask it altogether; how to introduce distinctive surface treatments; and how to incorporate winning storage solutions.
And if at first glance these bathrooms seem too rich for your means (after all, some were designed for such style makers as Laura Ashley, Rudolph Nureyev, and the Duchess of Windsor), enjoy the stunning visuals and then use the design tips in the captions to glean ideas for your own home.
--Amy Handy Better Homes & Gardens, Winter 1997 Author Diane Berger traces the bath's ups and downs as she chronicles more than a hundred examples of bath design ideas around the world-from straightforward to fanciful-that will help you create your own dream bath. .)
