    Entirely Eventful Day

    There are a lot of things that really work in this primary bathroom found on Entirely Eventful Day—the reclaimed wood floor is definitely one element, and so is the use of palm fronds for a dash of green. What really claims the attention here is the striking chandelier—a minimal, artistic piece. It contrasts with the other bathroom fixtures, yet doesn't clash at all and it definitely fills up the space of the high ceiling. The horizontal wall panels also have an interesting effect, even in this lengthy room.

    French Style Primary Bathroom

    G. P. Schafer

    The most daring style choice in this primary bathroom by G.P. Schafer is the mirror installed in the window. The reason why that works is that the window is quite large and lets in plenty of light, and the mirror doesn't block much of it. Add to that the French doors leading into the space, as well as the large area in front of the vanity, and you have a beautiful, spacious, stylish primary bathroom.

    There's something wonderfully comforting about this primary bathroom by Hunter Holder, via Houzz. It could be the warm wooden cabinets, the colorful rug, or the green plan in the corner; but whatever it is, it works.
