I see a lot of pictures of bathrooms, and I see some delightfully crazy things. Some of the craziest and most delightful things are in hotel bathrooms, where designers have a little more room to push the envelope than they might in a traditional residence. Here are five bathrooms with unusual design elements I would love to steal for my own home, if budget (and square footage) were no consideration.
Above: This tiled shower niche, in a room from the Hotel Pigalle in Göteborg, Sweden, is so beautiful that it almost makes having a shower in the bedroom seem not totally bizarre. Spotted on Lovely Life.
It's not quite as strange as a shower in the bedroom, but a bathtub inside the shower stall still seems a little unusual, at least to us Americans. But I dig it — I'd love a super-huge shower stall, and I wouldn't mind a few of those extra deep storage niches, either. This is the Hotel Covell in L.A., spotted on Domaine Home.
Is this the weirdest shower you've ever seen? I love it. It's like being trapped inside an 80s pop song, in the best possible way. Perhaps not surprisingly, this shower is located at the nHow Berlin, which bills itself as a 'music and lifestyle hotel'.
My next bathroom will have a patio adjoining it. With an outdoor shower. Because sometimes, you know, you finish taking a bath and you just want to lay around in the sun. You could do that if you were staying at the Hotel Sezz Saint Tropez (spotted on Yatzer).
Yep, this is a real bathroom. That exists in a real hotel, in the real world, and not just in your wildest dreams. This magical space is part of the Dedon Island Resort, spotted on Lonny. It's possible (probable) that I'll never have a bathroom that looks like this. But a girl can dream.
