Both of these bathrooms are featured in the Dec/Jan issue of House Beautiful—an excellent issue by the way–and they are almost mirror images in the use of classic lines and color.
The first bathroom belongs to visual merchandiser Mark D. Sikes. He painted the walls with Benjamin Moore High Gloss Black, which looks stunning with the texture of beadboard under it.
"It's handmade, and the tile makers are like artists, the way they create that glaze. There's a richness and creaminess to it, a warmth that felt right next to the marble floor."
Oh, and that 1920's sink and mirror will do nicely as well.
