This might be possibly the tiniest full bathroom I have ever seen. You can't even stand up in the tub! But where you and I might see only a small, cramped, and rather dreary space, blogger Emily Murray, of The Pink House, only saw potential.

Isn't this beautiful? Could you ever have imagined that that sad little bathroom could look this good? I love the white subway tile and brass fixtures, which give the bathroom a classic feel, and the gorgeous goldfish wallpaper from Osborne & Little, which adds just the right touch of personality. But this renovation isn't purely aesthetic — there's also quite a bit of functionality built into this little bathroom. A new sink cabinet, painted in Farrow & Ball's Downpipe, does a much better job of concealing clutter than the old pedestal sink. In the tub, where there's not nearly enough room to stand up, Emily had the clever idea of adding a sitting shower. Because who says you have to be standing up to shower? According to Emily, it's also a great place to shave your legs.

A built-in cabinet in front of the toilet replaces the old medicine cabinet and adds even more storage, and a couple of little niches, recessed into the tile (one behind the loo and the other in the tub) provide a nice place to display pretty things, like a Diptyque candle and Emily's little 'loo-brary'. It's hard to image a more beautiful (or more functional) little bathroom.
