Ladders make great bathroom accessories. They come in variety of styles and materials that can set the tone of a bathroom. Here are few of my favorite looks: a vernacular ladder contrasted with a classic claw foot tub, an elegant thin black metal ladders, beautiful wood ladder in a monochromatic wood bath, and last but not least an elegant black ladder with built in shelves in a classic bath.








































































A few posts back I shared with you the amazing pool at the Villa Midgård designed by Stockholm based DAPstockholm.  Since summer is almost over in the Northern Hemisphere, let’s go inside and look at the not-too-shabby bathroom of the same villa.  Here it is:

I can tell how much fun the architects had designing this bathroom.  I adore the random pattern of the floor tiles, the large mirror taking up and entire wall, and the full height window. A floor mounted towel heater, a built-in shelf and two solid wood surfaces complete the look.


I adore the color, that Ball & Farrow paint company calls ARSENIC. We use it in one of our bathroom designs Loft 1, a design inspired by a classic New York 1920 bathroom that so many of us still have for better or worse. Read the backstory if you haven’t in the past. A Loft 1 is currently being completed in NYC and will be posting some gorgeous phots in the next couple of weeks. In meantime enjoy these ARESENIC bathrooms.
