Paris Flea Market Bath

Paris Flea Market Bath

It's difficult to imagine an interior that doesn't reference the architecture of the building, so I developed this dream bathroom around the concept of a bohemian cottage in the South of France decorated with a mixture of reclaimed materials, architectural salvage, and fabulous flea market finds.

We begin with beautifully weathered French oak floors in a classic herringbone pattern. A worn Turkish kilim adds softness underfoot as well as a punch of color. The vanity is made from a rustic wood table fit with a reclaimed marble kitchen sink. The masculine lines of the chunky square sink are a perfect foil for the curved legs of the table and round vintage hotel mirror. I chose a wall mounted faucet in a period style with an oil rubbed bronze finish. The gorgeous saracen style soaking tub has an antique iron finish which plays off the other dark metals and complements the vintage industrial cabinet and wire basket. The feminine tile mosaic repeats the marble behind the tub and references the early 20th century with its art deco-inspired motif. The Modo Chandelier by Jason Miller adds a modern edge that completes the overall look. If you're wondering where the shower is located, you'll have to step outside. This is the South of France after all!
