Lunchtime! Best part of the day -- you eat a little, surf the 'net a little, enjoy some gorgeous bathrooms a little (more like a lot!). In keeping with Bathrooms month and following our Canada Day Lunchtime Fix photos highlighting red and white rooms by Sarah Richardson, I bring you bathrooms from Sarah's House and Sarah 101.
Sarah's House season 1: A dark vanity anchors a neutral palette; light-as-air pendants blend into the space.
Grey and aqua shower tiles complement the turquoise curtains and accent pieces while adding pattern, colour and contrast.
Still season 1, this kids' bath has touches of whimsy in the curvy mirror and texture in the vanity's basket weave pattern. An accent strip of tile proves that a little detail goes a long way.
Last from season 1, Sarah demonstrates how a small powder room can have large impact with a custom tile "rug" and a leggy vintage sink. A skinny mirror and lengthy sconces work to make the room seem even bigger.
Moving on to Sarah's House season 2: the round mirror, sconces and sink bring softness to a crisp, cool space. Alternating tiles in the shower create another point of interest and a touch of colour.
Sarah's House season 3, the farmhouse: there's plenty of storage in this family bath which serves the parents, too. Two antique dressers become twin vanities and a large glass-front case keeps towels and necessities organized and out of the way.
Sarah 101, Classic Ensuite: a striped tile treatment in the shower, along with the detailing on the floor make this space unique. Sarah loves creating custom vanities from vintage furniture and this bath gets a great mix of strength from the vanity and softness from the filigree-inspired mirror.
Which bathroom is your favourite? We love to hear from you!
