Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Cool bathrooms from RUM

I really like the "none-bathroomness" of the top bathroom here. The owners decided to skip the usual tile-covered walls, and also used some furniture and decorations that are decidedly not meant for bathrooms, like a chandelier, a Corbusier leather lounge chair, the desk lamp, a vintage chair and a cotton rug. This gave them a bathroom just as stylish as the rest of their home. I always feel it's such a drag to have to skip your usual style when decorating your bathroom, but this proves that you really don't have to! Just use whatever items you have in your other rooms, they can work equally good in a bathroom.


This bathroom below is really nice too, and I think these white tiles and woodfronted tub is quite achievable, even on a budget.

    The first bathroom is to die for! Simply gorgeous ! But must question the safety of a desk lamp on the edge of the tub, however great it looks; Here in France, and I imagine all around the world, all electrics must be two metres from faucets, or any water source...

    I love the chair with books...unfortunately I've never had a bathroom with that much space or that much light. :(

    I really agree with you about approaching the bathroom wih an open mind like the other rooms in the house, I think the same can be said for kitchens.

    The tiles in the second bathroom are from Made a Mano. It's a Danish company, but they have retailers all over Europe and one in the US too.
