I started a new pin board for my bathroom makeovers. I call it Ikea Bathroom. Genius. I've been geeking out over hex tiles and free-standing tubs and brass sconces and round mirrors. And you know what else? Fixtures. Bathroom fixtures really interest me these days. Who knew?
I saw this one on Emily Henderson's blog, and it's got me thinking about matte black.
Or how about this little number? I'd turn that on any day.
Or how about this? It's just a humble door knob, but I love how it's flat and modern.
I'm planning on going for something like this, from Smitten Studio, for our guest bathroom.
I just love how the matte black blurs the edges and soaks up all the light. It somehow looks both creamy and moody. It's blunted and rich, and it pairs perfectly with the shiny white and brushed brass. I'd also add some woven baskets or unfinished wood accents for texture. (And I just noticed the hex planter echoes the floor tile. So clever.)
What do you think of the matte black trend? Will we tire of it in five minutes, or is it here to stay (for a while)?
