I Love Circus Tent Bathrooms




I know you've all probably seen these pictures before but I can't get enough of them. I have a very small {and I mean very small}, unrenovated bathroom at home and another unrenovated bathroom at the beach, one of which I would love to do in this style....one day!!

I know what you mean. Our bathroom is very, very tiny.

I totally agree! I actually have both of those pics in my inspiration book. Love the effect!

I have seen them. And fell in love. Thanks for the wonderful reminder!

I was thrilled to see these pictures. I saw a similiar design in architectual digest a year or two ago and haven't been able to locate the issue. This is exactly what I need to show the painter- thank you!

Yes, it looks very happy and alive. How could you leave these bathrooms in a sour mood?

Haven and Home said...

Hi Ann,I love this look.I love it with the black and white awning stripes.I have thought of doing this in a childs play room using a black and white silhouettes,numbers and letters.then adding colorful bedding and pillows.I think you should definitely do this look.LOVE IT!!!Kathysue,Micasastyle.com,my very small bathroom is featured on this sites design spot.It is only 6X10 and I gave it a ocean spa look.I put everything a large bath would have but with a lot less sq ftg.

Speaking of Domino mag (the first image), did you all hear they're shutting it down? So sad. Last issue: March.

Courtney said...

I think walking into such a bathroom would have to make you smile!

Michele said...

After seeing these photos, SO DO I!

amy b.s. said...

i wanted to do this in our tiny bathroom as well, but with thinner white stripes. it was quickly vetoed by the boyfriend. i'm pretty sure it would have looked amazing though...

samantha hahn said...

oh my gosh...me to Anna...me too!

Pink Julep said...

The yellow one is cute, but the pink one is to die for - that shower situation is gorgeous!

Heather said...

Anna, did you hear about Domino? We need to start an uprising!

Love the bold yellow and white stripes and that chandelier in the first photo is beautiful.

maureen said...

ooohhh love striped yellow! reminds me of a french hotel. i did my daughter's room in that color

coco+kelley said...

i think the bathroom is just about the only place i could handle the circus tent stripes, since it's not exactly a space you have to 'live' in. so very very fun!

MARGARITA BLOOM said...

Wow, those are so dreamy! The bathroom is my favorite room in the house so these are just so cute, bright and cheerful....exactly my style...Lovely blog!

Emily said...

This is a great connection. This is a wonderfully fun look. I am currently working on a small bathroom that I am putting a wild wallpaper in. A small room can handle a loud pattern in it - plus - you don't spend THAT much time in it!
