The Forgotten Gallery

The master bathroom is the room where we start our day. It should comfort and revitalize us, at the same time be an inspiration to the rest of our day.  Renovating a bathroom is much more personal than renovating a kitchen or a home theatre.  It takes more time, more thought.  The best bathrooms come from partnering with your designer and adding your thumbprint through textures, colors, fixtures, lighting, accessories, temperatures, and yes, even art. Strangely, we rarely consider adding art to the bathroom when renovating. 

Art inspires us.  It comforts us.  It excites us.  When we think about renovating a bathroom, we consider many things: design, space, storage, tiles, light, color, textures, which all evoke strong emotions and create the space you want to wake up to.  The options are endless.  It is really a balance between form and function.  Adding art to the walls can assist in creating the emotion in the room.  Add a pop of color for inspiration or relaxation.  Add a cherished family photo for a sense of security and love.  Add piece of art from an adventurous trip.  How about wall art with sayings to inspire you or to add a touch of humor or whimsy to start your day?  A well-balanced room with art will affect all our senses.

So, no art degree or experience needed when choosing art.  Find the colors that coordinate and inspire an emotion.  It doesn’t need to break the bank. Simply choose a painting or print that speaks to you.  The piece of art that puts a smile on your face is the one to buy!  Place it on the wall in front of the toilet or on the wall that you face when in the tub.  Have fun with your selection.  Remember: even a chandelier can be a piece of art!
