Hotel Bathrooms

hotel bathrooms

I love hotel bathrooms. I mean love. So when it came time to redo our own bathroom, I looked to some of my favorite hotels for inspiration. In my book, London hotels are the ones to beat, with those gorgeous polished nickel fixtures and  creamy palettes that age so gracefully. But I’m also partial to New York subway tile—it’s so good if a little masculine. Plus, I’m married to a New Yorker and don’t live in a luxury London hotel, so subway seemed to make sense for our project. So I’ve split the difference and used warm, antique whites and polished nickel with rich, creamy subway tile and a vintage hex floor that’s time appropriate to our 1921 Los Angeles home. Can’t wait to share the finished product, but in the meantime a sneak peak at the elements:


  1. Beautiful references. The wallpaper in Henry’s bathroom was totally inspired by Soho Grand. Anxiously awaiting pics of the finished result!

  2. Am DYING to see this. Dying!

  3. Well, good luck with that! We have been remodeling for a year and it has been trying to say the least. Can’t wait to see the your new bathroom!
