southern comfort - the bathroom

A fireplace, soaking tub and eclectic collection of found objects makes this bathroom the homeowners haven. Plenty of storage and amble counter space keeps the space tidy while the large skylight provides plenty of natural light. The separate water closet and large steam shower keeps complete the room. A pair of etched glass doors allow natural light to filter between bathroom and bedroom.

This bathroom has been published in Trends as well as Better Homes & Gardens magazines, appeared on HGTV's "I Want That Bath" and received a national design award from Residential Design Build magazine.

This is a simple tile, white with what it seems a gray grout. You can find them in pretty much any tile store, it is hard to tell, if they are high end or not, but, if you are willing to spend the money, you can find them at Walker Zanger, Ann Sacks or any other high end tile retailer.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Home Design: What's Your Story?
Even items in your bathroom can tell your story. Where is the engraving from? Was the plant stand an inheritance or flea market find? Is the clock in your bathroom an attempt to overcome chronic tardiness?

And use a glass door so the light filters into the bathroom.
Becky Harris added this to 10 Vintage Touches for Your Bathroom
This charming candle stand adds an unexpected touch to the bathroom, making it feel more like any other room in the house.
