What: A contemporary white bathroom with a warm wood ceilingLocation: Barton Hills neighborhood of Austin, TexasUploaded to Houzz: April 29, 2014Pulling off wood in a bathroom is somewhat tricky. With all the water kicked around during baths and showers, mold and rot are fears — which is unfortunate, because wood is a great way to warm up a white color scheme, chosen by many homeowners for its clean and sterile look. Architect Eric Barth solved this dilemma with the one thing that can ease moisture concerns: lots of ventilation. For this contemporary Austin bathroom completed in November 2013, he placed the bathtub at one end of the space with an operable window that opens to the breezy backyard.
