rustic modern black and white bathroom with freestanding tub. / sfgirlbybay

longing for a feminine, but not over-the-top girly bathroom? then this is the post for you. if you’ve seen my bathroom, you know i love a black and white bathroom, but i think even with a classic look like that, you can still add funky and feminine touches — vintage mirrors, nude sketches and portrait paintings for instance, add an interesting and artistic twist. a vintage stool looks chic next to the tub — and a stylish spot for your favorite scented , and perhaps some pretty . be sure to add the softest for a touch of luxury.
