Jessica Lagrange's black and white tiled bath tub and white towel holder stand
Bath 1 - Love the use of black accent tile laid in a graphic pattern in this small white bath. (above)

I am obsessed with all things black and white lately. Don't know why...but I am. I love the idea of using the color combination in a bathroom. A predominately white bath using with touches of black.  Perfection.  Clean. Simple. Stylish.

So today I bring you the black & white bath...and you decide which one you like best...THIS OR THAT?

russell groves's black and white bathroom with black and white striped tile floor, two pedestal sinks and long mirror with white paneled wall with black dividers
Bath 2 - Love the stripe black and white marble floor and the narrow pencil black highlight tiles used on the wall in this modern bath (above and below)

michael mundy's black and white bathroom with white freestanding tub, black lacquer trimed door,  glossy brass faucet pulls, and carrara marble floors, walls and counters
Bath 3 - High gloss black paint is used on doors and window trim to contrast against the elegant white marble in this classic bath. (above)

mcintyre bills' black white bathroom bath with black tiles on the floor, black and white subway tiles on the walls, a white freestanding tub with white shower curtain and a white pedestal sink
Bath 4 - Half black, half white...polished subway tiles create a two toned look here. (above)
So which of these baths do you like best?  I am gravitating towards Bath 3.  Which do you prefer?  Please weigh in on the comments below!

Happy Monday!


P.S. Hope you had a fantastic long weekend.  I did. Thanksgiving was great.  Loved seeing family.  Then I managed to get a little COCOCOZY work done too (had to apply for a patent and register several copyrights for my new 2013 designs...I know...the lawyer in me came out this weekend).  I saw some friends. And, I also got some rest and relaxation in too.  A great weekend really!

P.P.S.  Now the countdown begins...Christmas is right around the corner!!!

  1. I actually love it all! It's really hard to screw up a black and white tiled bathroom in my opinion...some things just work!

  2. All but the second bathroom for me. I love vintage style baths so the others are more my kind.

  3. Love them all, but prefer the subtle touch of black over the all the black (not the rugby team)look. I just did my WIR all black and I love it, but no one else sees it, so it's a little OTT just for me. I think if you are renovating you should do what you love, and if other people hate it - oh well.

  4. Definitely number 3. It's the least sterile looking one, and it's classic, cozy and elegant.

  5. Number three is absolutely stunning!

  6. I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and the topic of bathroom designs was very interesting to me.Thank you for writing and a special thanks to you and your readers.

  7. I love black and white for bathrooms - the image with the marble and black trim and doors is stunning!

  8. I am pining every one of these photos. These are AMAZING bathrooms!
