There was a lot of excitement surrounding the Royal Wedding this past summer. Every time we turned on the television or flipped through a magazine, we were treated to visions of Givenchy wedding gowns, St. George’s Chapel, and lemon sponge cake with butter cream frosting and elderflower syrup. Can you blame us for falling in love with all things Royal? And while we can’t all live at Windsor Castle, we can have a master bathroom fit for a King or Queen. With a little inspiration (and help from Willow Lane Cabinetry) you can transform your master bathroom into the royal retreat of your dreams.
A Strong Foundation
Tile is the obvious choice for bathroom flooring, but for a luxurious look, opt for marble. Consider a soft white marble herringbone pattern, or a black marble basket weave mosaic for an elegant master bath. Other options include porcelain tile with gray or warm gold veining that realistically mimics the appearance of marble. Reminiscent of fine natural stone, porcelain is durable and impervious to water, making it an excellent choice for bathrooms.
A Charming Color Palette
Ultra Violet, Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2018, is a fitting choice. Shades of purple have always been associated with wealth, status and luxury, as it was extremely expensive to produce the dye that created this rich hue. During the rein of Queen Elizabeth I, only close members of the royal family were permitted to wear purple. Today, purple looks absolutely elegant in the home. Other colors associated with royalty and suitable for master bathroom walls include:
- Yellow Gold
- Rose Gold
- Royal Blue
- Emerald Green
Bathroom Vanity Cabinets
While the throne is important, the focal point of a master bathroom is the cabinetry. Look for sophisticated details that will elevate your space. For example, a rich glaze on antique white cabinets that accents traditional raised panel doors, or cabinetry with a dark finish, complimented by decorative embellishments such as moldings, corbels and glass mullion doors. Add traditional brass or brushed pewter pulls and faucets to complete the Royal look.
Carefully selected finishing touches are the crowning glory of any master bathroom. When designing a bathroom fit for royalty, these elements might include a claw foot tub, traditional towel rings and bath hardware, filigree wall sconces, a crystal chandelier, gilded mirrors above bathroom vanity cabinets, damask drapery, toile wallpaper, high-end area rugs, or a well-placed antique wingback chair.
