Hide CaptionShow CaptionThis beautiful red bathroom fits the home's Victorian style and meets the homeowners' needs.
Now it's a bold, Brazilian-themed bath, complete with bright colors, gorgeous natural wood accents and lots of character! Gone is the linoleum, and in its place is heated tile in a small octagon and dot-shaped pattern that keeps with the Victorian style of the house. (Older homes typically have smaller tiles rather than larger ones.) The window behind the backsplash has been exposed and given a stained-glass treatment that adds to the theme and allows in valuable natural light. The radiator pipes have been cleverly concealed by a custom-made art box. A sleek new toilet, much-larger vanity in a dark rustic wood with a gorgeous black granite countertop and plenty of lighting — four recessed lights, a main light and two pendant lights, to be exact — top it all off.
