DC Design House Bathroom

I think my favorite space in the 2012 DC Design House has to be this bathroom by Christopher Patrick and Kaitlyn Andrews-Rice of Christopher Patrick Interiors. And that's saying a lot because I have to rank the combination of red and brown very low on my favorite color combo lists. But this bathroom is amazing! 

The designers worked with the already in place brown and white tile floor - instead of ripping it out and going with marble and painting the bathroom sea glass blue, they used the floor as inspiration for something new. I love that old details can make you think outside the box and create something totally beautiful even if it's not what you originally envisioned.

The Farrow & Ball wallpaper is the obvious showstopper, but paired with the wood details and brown tile, this bathroom becomes so comfortable and warm. The tortoise mirror, wall lamp and fixtures remind you that this space is elevated and chic, but gone are the watery tones and spa-like appeal of most current bathroom renovations. I'm truly enamored with this space.

Jennifer did a great job of summarizing the rooms of the 2012 DC Design House in this post on her blog DC by Design. She shows you befores and afters of this beautiful show house, open through May 13.
